Okay, so on to my project for this go round. I'm up to week 5 and I was thrilled when I saw Linda's tag for this week. (She's up to week 8, by the way)! It was very Art Deco. Anyone who knows me or has followed the blog knows that I LOVE anything Art Deco. When Tim Holtz came out with his Deco Christmas stamp set last year I was thrilled!! I've used those stamps so many times in creating Christmas tags and paper art. Well, once again, I put them to good use. Here is what I came up with.
I used Linda's design liberally in this page. I loved the star border with the sun rays stencil. It really looks very Deco. So, I cut the stars with a silver glitter card stock and glued it on top of the sun rays which I had stenciled with Wendy Vecchi's silver embossing paste. The background was done with Distress Stain and some Perfect Pearls spray. I stamped the Merry Christmas with a stamp from the Deco Christmas stamp set with black archival ink and ran the silver DS around the edge of the page.
I don't have the deco gentleman die that Linda used. So, I found a lovely flapper dressed in red and ready to go to a holiday party in the Graphic 45 Couture collection of papers. I fussy cut her and applied her to the page with foam tape. Here are some details.
Isn't she lovely?!
I love my Art Deco page! It was so much fun to plan and when I found the flapper in her red costume I was thrilled!
I hope everyone in the U. S. is staying warm. I think things are going to warm up a little by the beginning of Thanksgiving week! And, I wish all my U. S. readers a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for you and all the lovely comments you leave here. Have a wonderful day!
