Art Deco ATC - The Dusty Attic


Hello everyone! 

The ATC theme this month over at The Dusty Attic is Art Deco.  Art Deco is "an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s, then waned in the post-World War II era.[1] It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation".  I thought this image represented this style beautifully.

Once I selected my image I knew I wanted to create a dramatic frame.  I used ATC Frame #4 (DA0876) to create a dramatic frame for my image.  I painted the frame using black acrylic paint, then I sprinkled black glitter while the paint was still wet.  Applying glitter to your chipboard gives it a beautiful shine and creates wonderful texture.

Thanks so much for joining me today.
