Art Nouveau at Just for Fun

I hope you are enjoying our little travel through time at Just For Fun :)
Going back just a little further this week at Just for Fun with Art Nouveau for me it's a very feminine style, rich in colours and texture and so organic  
For my piece this week I have embossed a piece of foil with an image I printed off the Internet to use as my patten and distressed with black acrylic paint and mounted onto the front of a note book.I am please with it but just can't make up my mind whether to add ribbons and the such like to the spine

To find out more and see what Zoe and Neet have created please visit Just for Fun and I hope Bloger is being kind to everyone after the troubles of last week
It's also anything but a card at Simon Says

now that's some lovely metel work, it looks stunning. Some ribbon offcuts tied to the spine may add another texture,the great thing is they are easily snipped off if it doesnt work!

Thanks for sharing

Hi Von. This looks amazing as it is. When I first saw it I thought it looked like pewter. It must have taken ages. Love the distressing and the overal effect.

Beautiful embossed cover! I really like the design and then how you antiqued it by adding the black acrylic paint. Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Hi Von, dont touch it !! Its perfect as is , stunning work. The last few challenges at JFF have left me stumped and not a big Deco or Nouveau fan but you ladies did magnificently.

I thought this was metal embossed. Great job you have made of it Von but I don't think it needs ribbons adding to it. Maybe some metal chain weaving in and out of the spirals with some charms on at the end would look good. Lovely book to treasure.
Hugs, Neet xx
