Roaring Twenties

What a great theme for a tag!  I have to admit it was tricky for me to pinpoint what I wanted to do for it though.  I ended up picking a few themes that remind me of the 20's - flappers, the Stock Market crash and art deco.


All of the images I used were found on the internet.  The base of my tag is a picture of a model of the Empire State Building, a classic art deco structure. The jitterbuggers are kicking up their heels and I added a little bling to our lady's dress with some pewter Stickles.  I purposedly used a color image for the dancers and a black and white for the job seekers to accentuate the difference between the carefree existence of the wealthier members of society and the struggles of the unemployed at that time.  I also really liked the black and white image because it shows both white collar and blue collar guys.

I'm really enjoying Tag Tuesday.  Thanks for letting me play along!
