Art deco

A style of design and decoration popular in the 1920′s and 1930′s characterized by designs that are geometric and use highly intense colors, to reflect the rise of commerce, industry and mass production.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ not my style but I gave it a try. It was for the Journal52 prompt
and I don't like it but I had a lot of fun spraying the ink on the paper and then removing ink with water. I can see this creepy face in there too, can you? 
I figured this quote was too perfect for

Lindy's Moon Shadow MistVan Dyke's Sepia

so I didn't like the creepy face so it became this:

 Added a small journal tag and dotted lines leading to the heart.

and a very short slideshow showing the steps:

Hi Sandee,

I didn't see the creepy face but I did see where I spilled my coffee. You really changed the page. I like how it turned out. Do you use the varnish spray because the sprays aren't permanent? I have some of the dylusions sprays and found out that they aren't permanentt, which is a bummer.

Now that is a creepy face! Love the finished one, very striking! xx

You can always guarantee they'll be lots of inspiration in your posts Sandee and yet again you don't disappoint!
I love how you just have a go. I need to adapt that attitude and that way I might actually got some artwork completed.
Have a great creative week ;D

I saw an interesting dude with lots of cool stories to tell in the top piece. I guess my intuition is off because he didn't seem creepy at all. The second one makes me think of some Tron-like video game, sort of new wavy. I like the hidden little title on it. Fun stuff!

Yes I can see the face, think the first page looks great, super colour blocks on the second one.

Hi Sandee, well I could see a face, but he didn't look too creepy, kind of intriguing I'd say :) Love the colours on your second page...good fun! Waving from wet England Carole Z X
