Art Deco


I have had such a busy week this week with preparing for and attending craft fairs, two nights out with friends and general stuff at home that I haven't had as much time for commenting as usual. So apologies if I haven't been by your blogs this week. I really appreciate all your visits and will get round to visiting you as soon as I can. I have the last of my September fairs tomorrow.

I bought a pack of Art Deco toppers and papers from the Debbi Moore stand at Doncaster. They are so beautiful but very large and I wasn't sure I would ever use them all so I made a few cards and sold the rest of the pack. They are useful for making quick cards and they are very popular with my customers too. I added a pink feather, some pearl pins and a lovely vintage flower from The Hobby House. This 7" card sold on its first outing at a craft fair.

I love how this card looks so sophisticated, art deco and art nouveau are my favourite design periods. I'm not surprised this card sold on its first outing. Xx
