DIY Art Deco Poster

I am a believer in homemade gifts. I think they are special and with so many family and friends birthday’s and celebrations I attend here what do you buy people that have everything?


Or perhaps you don’t have the budgets for over the top gifts (which I don’t!).

I had this photo of Natalia where I did her makeup for a photo shoot by the wonderful Dubai fashion photographer Fanny Turcotte.

Natalia is very Chanel Chic, vintage 60’s/70’s style so I made this little poster and had it printed in a frame. You could also print it on canvas at any of the kiosks around Dubai.

Anyone can do this – I did it Powerpoint and formatted the pictures into pop art style. The entire gift cost me 100AED yet it is special and personalized to her.

Photographer: Fanny Turcotte –

Makeup by me: sleek eye shadow palette, black liquid eyeliner Maybelline, Tom ford foundation. Fake H&M eyelashes.

Printed – at Kodak stores on photo paper for 30AED
