Art Deco......D

or is it Nouveau? I think it is close enough.  Well it best be as not making another one lol.  You guessed it I made it for our new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme this week is Art Deco.  

Off I went to watch a few You tube tutorials and came across a fabulous one from Jennings644.  She inspired me with this one.

I painted the canvas black and then sprayed perfect pearls over it to give a little sheen.  I then covered it in Mod Podge.  I glued two pieces of ribbon together to make a ridge, just to look different.  I printed a photo from the net.  I just love her even though she is half dressed. Oh to have a body like that lol.  I matted the photo and glued lace and pearl trim around it to give the appearance of a frame.  I did two sides the same as you can see.  I added bling from my stash, a black and diamante rose which originated from a ring and a couple of metal leaves colored silver and black with a dash of glamour dust over the top.




Well that was easy to write about lol.

Why not head on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with the fun, we would love to see you there.
