JFF challenge – Art Deco

Over at Just For Fun this week the challenge is Art Deco.  When I think of Art Deco, not that I know that much about it, I always think of Clarice Cliff.

I painted a wooden box for this weeks challenge.  I took the design off a CC plate for the box lid.  Although, now I have done it, I wished I had done my own design in that sort of style.

Not keen on the blue climber or the water wheel but on a day when everything is going wrong I am not that bothered! lol!

I am hoping I can post this.  I am having problems at the moment with the computer and also leaving comments.  We will see in a mo!  Hopefully I will be able to catch up with everyone when everything is working properly.  Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Best wishes Florence

P.S  The problem seems to be with blogspot.  I can’t leave comments but I have been visiting!

  2. A lovely box Florence. I don’t mind the colour of blue on it as it works with the sides of the box. I know what you mean though, still it does us all good to use something out of our comfort zone once in a while, blue leaves or green, does it really matter?
    Thanks for sharing and joining in with us again at JFF – Hugs, Neet

  4. A wonderful nod to Clarice.
    I adore Art Deco and in fact that era completely fascinates me whether it be art, music, style, etc. Your box also reminds me of travel posters of that era with ther cheerful, blocked colours.

  6. Fantastic Box, I was going to use CC as well until it occurred to me to give my box a metal lid. Don’t think I would have done anything as fabulous as this. Having just had my blogger account suspended and then re-instated , hearing that a lot of people are having problems hope yours are now sorted and it is of course Friday 13th.

    Thank you Florance for sharing this terrific box with us at Just for Fun XOXO Zoe
