Love Art Nouveau & a freebie
Despite the high pollen count, which is wrecking havoc with my head, I love the last few days we have had here in Norfolk. Warm and dry, not hot and humid, a bit breezy at times. Azalea festival time! Flowers and flowering trees everywhere blooming and making the world a prettier place. It made me think of one of my favorite art styles/design periods - Art Nouveau. Art Nouveau is known for it's flowing lines and interest in the natural world - plants, animals and so forth. So I looked in my stash and found some vintage Art Nouveau postcards and created some pretty flairs for you today. Having done so, I think I may just have to make some papers and a few elements in this style too; tomorrow will find me drawing a color swatch from today's flairs. http://www.4shared.com/zip/sT2KTlzOce/ws_ArtNouveauFlairs.html? Enjoy!
