The "1920's" The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby
Chapter 1, opening words
In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

Be inspired to merge and mingle images from the Gatsby Collection with Flapper Fashions. This era lends applause to be versatile with many  of  the Artistic Outpost stamp plates.
My background was created using a technique from Shelley Hickox using Gesso and Alcohol inks..Embellishments are from Tim Holtz Alterations line.
Thanks for stopping by Artistic Outpost blog.
