1960's Retro

Try it on Tuesday's them this week was 1960's retro. We like to think 1960's as fun - but perhaps it was not a fun period for those who lived through it. What makes it fun for us: think of the riot of colors, the unabashed joie de vivre and consumerism, the psychedelic fabrics, the fashions going from prim and proper in the beginning of the decade and ending in "anything goes, preferably hippie".

I am more for prim and proper this time.

                                                            "Here comes the Sun."

Self-made background with stencil and paints, some stamping. Woman cut out from 60's sewing pattern. She is wearing yellow 3D studs. Win-Win with red sun was a transparent clothing tag, contemporary though, but very much keeping with retro style.

Also entry for Sunday Postcard Art challenge that has Stencils as the theme.

Thanks for looking!

  6. Sekoitan vähän suomeakin joukkoon, vaikka muutaman sanan englantiakin osaan ;-)
    Siispä: Tykkäisin tuosta kasista eli "Mihem sää o menos" ja toiseksi, onko Kuu taivaalla vaihdettavissa, eli se ihana Pöllö runoineen??
    Jos ei niin entä "Ihmeellinen olo"?
    Minusta voitaisiin vaihtaa pari saman tien, eli etsi sinäkin toinen, joko niistä uusista tai sitten kotisivuiltani www.uuna.fi
    Palaillaan, Uuna

    (Ne uimarinaiset on upeita!!)

  7. Hei Uuna, toki suomeakin saa kirjoittaa! Itsekin pyrin kirjoittamaan postaukset molemmilla kielillä, mutta tällä kertaa taisi unohtua.
