With all the wrapping that has going on around here, it has been weeks since I gave myself a little wrapping challenge. One of those breaks where I just play around and see if I can capture what has caught my eye. Where better to get colour inspiration than from the fashion world? Or in this case another blog.
When I saw this image on the stylish blog This is Glamorous last week, I was totally taken with the colour combination seen in the Rochas Spring 2010 Collection in Paris. With a colour combination of paprika, saffron, apricot, and a gorgeous dose of chartreuse, I really couldn't help myself. Then those silk flowers on the waist.......of course I am going to at least try.
A couple of my variations. The larger gift has both a apricot and purple silk flower tucked into all that chartreuse satin ribbon and a narrow length of orange ribbon. If I was being totally faithful to the fashion style seen above, I would edit my embellishments. Though I like to think I can wrap very simply, I am only kidding myself. I really do think more-is-better when it comes to gift wrapping. Though I do have a simple recycled gift wrap to show you soon........you are going to be so proud of my restraint!
