May Challenge#89: To Have and to Hold - TWIST: Art Deco style!

Hello Peeps! 

Happy May
Autumnal mornings...

This is often the month of engagements and marriages and Spring
 in the Northern Hemisphere!

For us in the Southern half, not so much......

However, there are always folks getting Engaged, Married 
or Celebrating a Wedding Anniversary!

So, the Challenge is 

"To Have and To Hold"

What better way to do that than with some glamour. 

So the TWIST this month is 
To use some ART DECO Glamour!

Remember, you don't have to do the TWIST to enter
BUT ..... what is a challenge without a CHALLENGE!

What is Art Deco all about?
It is about STYLE!

It started about the 1920's and finished in the 40's. Based around geometric designs and patterns it was incorporated into buildings,manufacturing, clothing, furnishings and furniture and jewellery. It also was a big part of Art, as well as Crafts.

It was build through Art Nouveau and it's sinuous curves, but was more fixated on smooth lines, geometric shapes, streamlined forms and bright, sometimes garish colours. It also incorporated lots of costly items such as gold and silver and jewels but after the depression of the 30's it began to use cheaper, newer materials like plastic and chrome.

There are lots of images to be seen in Google Images and lots of things on Pinterest as well, but don't just look for cards - look for items and boxes and materials and clothing......you will get so much inspiration!

HERE is a good place to start for ideas!

So - you can go to town in the TWIST!
