A Lady with Class



I am a lover of ART, great color, composition and metal....that having been said, this piece really speaks to me.


I LOVE Alphonse Mucha. His gorgeous works make him my all-time favorite ARTIST.

The colors in his pieces are second to none. He created pieces around the early 1900's and developed the Art Nouveau style. I just love his work. 


Graphic 45 and their brilliance made my day when they came up with the Steampunk line using his ladies. My fav from them.



The METAL that I said I love, means I always have to have a bit of it in almost all my pieces.

This one is no exception....the pieces are from the hardware store, the scrapbook store, the jewelry store, and the computer recycling shop.  It all works for me.

The 3 frames around her are cut with the 2 Tim Holtz Dies, Movers and Shapers Mini Cabinet Card and the Vintage Cabinet Card sprayed with the new Perfect Pearls Mists Perfect Bronze, Pewter, and Sour Apple.


I really had fun doing this piece. It's on a canvas board and the gold German Scrap is painted with Gold Paint Dabber.



Try something like it yourself.

  9. Your artwork is beautiful. I would never have thought of adding 'steampunk' to one of this style of ladies. It works so wonderfully well.

  10. I just saw his sculpture of "Nature" this week at the Virginia Museum of Art. It was gorgeous and really big!!! I love his art, too. Art Nouveau really inspires me. The museum has a huge section of art and furniture an jewelry. The Lalique stopped my heart. Check it out if you ever make it this way. I'm heading back home to Georgia tomorrow so it'll be a while before I can see it again but it was great! I love your interpretation with the metal!! Gorgeous!
