Loverly-loverly plates

I love the art work of Gil Elvgren, so I have decided to incorporate his art work in to my plate decoration.

(NOT Gil Elvgren)

I think they look bloomin' lovely!

Tattoo Art

Well, I have discovered a new type of art that I am becoming fascinated with - tattoo art.

I've never had a tattoo, nor have I ever desired one, but just lately, I am getting more and more turned-around to the idea of getting one.

I am particularly liking the tattoos based on 50s pin ups, and as a result, I am also liking the art and style from this period as well.


I just love the look of vintage sewing patterns and the style of drawing to depict the models of the time.

Sooooo elegant....

As a result, this week I have been making decoupage plates with this theme in mind, still early days, but I am LOVIN' the look...
