wedding day

March's inspiration for the ARTastic Challenge blog comes from a painted postcard......

Reverie by Alphonso Muscha

Mucha was the creator/originator of ART Nouveau (French for new art style)
Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful healthy young women in flowing vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed haloes behind the women's heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used paler pastel colors.

Up for a challenge???? try your hand at this one.....and , for upto 6 bonus points,have your layout include any/all of the following ARTastic Diva Demands... for an extra 6 bonus points

1. Use a cut out figurine from a photo = 1 pt
2. Make a halo using flowers around the figurines head = 2pts
3. Use Art Nouveau style/designs on your layout = 3 pts

its a beautiful work of art, and very much my style....i decided to use a picture of myself in my wedding gown. I love the new graphic 45 paper, and i thought that it was perfect for this layout. I used old lace remanents and buttons i gathered during one of my thrift store outtings....i added handmade flowers from old sewing patterns and accented them with a pearl bead. i love the vintage-ness!!!!
