Inspiring Woman

Hello my dear blog reader!

"Inspiring Woman" is the theme on the russian challenge blog scrap-tea (the blog with the wonderful name tea with cinnamon, hosted by Smilla).

I saw that challenge and all the inspiring projects of the DT and and I knew that I wanted to join necessarily.

I've always been fascinated by the women of the '20s. 
Golden Twenties or Happy Twenties is a term, mostly used in Europe, to describe the 1920s, in which most of the continent had an economic boom. It was a bloom time of art, culture and science.
Women smoked for the first time in public. A shocking effect was important in fashion, assessoires and hairstyles. The woman of the twenties was independent, dynamic and confident. Woman went out, drove car, smoked and played sports. This new female lifestyle was part of a society that lived fast and intense, at least those who could afford it.

And this is my project. 

 I used some golden acrylic paint, modelling paste and stencil to create a background which is reminiscent of the twenties. I tried to describe the women with some adjective, like sophisticated, elegant, chic, brave, independently,...

books: stamp designed by me for Whiff of Joy; chipboard: wycinanka; telephone sticker: My Mind's Eye
photo: I found in the www
stencil: Arabesque from Nathalie Kalbach
alpha sticker: Authentique
And i want to share this project with the wonderful Paint Party Friday. Happy PPF!
