Oz the great and powerful

It seems 2013 is the year of the emerald. Colour 17-5641 emerald green is Pantone's colour of the year and the prequel to the Wizard if Oz, Oz the Great and Powerful, has been released making me fall in love with the Emerald City all over again.

I saw the film last weekend and thought it was fantastic, in particular the costumes. Theodora's merlot velvet jacket and 70s inspired hat is a strong contender for my next fancy dress outfit.

What I also loved was the ribbon cocarde worn by Knuck. It's a teardrop shape and very pretty, you can see it in a clip here. I love making ribbon cocardes and so it's inspired me to create my own,  I have the supplies at the ready and will be crafting an Oz inspired brooch soon. X
