Artastic

Reverie by Alphonso Muscha




I am so excited to share my first layout that I created for Artastic, since I became a designer!
I love this picture of Clara from Tanya and Jimmy's wedding... it was very fitting for the painting. 

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.

I recommend you all look up his Art Nouveau work to get a feel for his style (Google).

ARTastic Diva Demand... 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

I hope you come join along with us... you have until the end of March to send your submission to Shazza.  There is a link on the sidebar to her email!
I look forward to seeing your entries!
