"Vogue" ATC ~ Dusty Attic ~

Hi there, the theme this months Dusty Attic's ATC Challenge is "ART DECO"
This theme is a little harder as it is not so commonly known what Art Deco is.
Think 1920's to the 1940's geometric and glamour.
Art Deco (/ˌɑrt ˈdɛkoʊ/), or 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.

Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.

Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style...[that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material...[and] the requirements of mass production."[2]

During its heyday Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
Hopefully that helps give you a few more ideas on tackling this theme! :)

I painted and drew this 40's girl, well that is what I was aiming for anyway! LOL
