Art Deco!

We have a new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and this week's theme from the PINK TEAM is
Art Deco
My first thought was " Oh NO!!!" but if you look up the definition of Art Deco it actually covers a huge area of art that we call Art Deco, Art Nouveau and modernism. 'Art Deco' was purely decorative art derived from one of the Post (First) War movements and included clothing, furniture, house decoration as well as pieces of art!
Some years ago I decided I wanted to decorate our bedroom in the style of Art Deco - it was very angular and stylised with a great deal of influence from Rennie Mackintosh and could have been classified as Art Nouveau BUT it also had fun elements that really stamped the Art Deco style firmly on it. So I've waffled enough on the art lesson and chose to use an image from a Debbie Moore CD for my project.

I printed out the image and mounted it onto some brown glitter card.  I also added some copper glitter to her dress and head dress and a little bling! I used some lush cream lace to frame the card and voila!

I do hope you will join us at Eclectic Ellapu and remember Art Deco is not that difficult! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
