I have to say that reading the comments for my 60's retro card on Tuesday, I haven't laughed that much in a really long time!! I have just a few thoughts about what you wrote.
Chris (pearshapedcrafting) - Black and white sounds like a safe bet amid all those crazy colours.
Brenda - mini-skirts weren't for me, but I thought my bell-bottoms were cool at the time...I was wrong. lol
Ros - Regarding Mary Quant...when you're that beautiful, you can wear a potatoe sac and make it look good!
Patty O'Malley - Completely agree, and you can count that whole 80's leg-warmers and bangles era a complete and utter failure as well!
Beth Brovold - You're right about the hair in the 60's...it was no cup of tea either...but then again, have you seen teenagers nowadays?? Not much better!
Sarah - you totally cracked me up with that story about your Mom's psychedelic lime green and purple chiffon blouse!! I admit, I really want to see a photo of that one!
Massofhair - BWAHAHAHA!! A knitted bathing suit!! Sorry, I don't mean to laugh but BWAHAHAHA!
Angela - Swinging Sixties - yet another reason I'm glad I was a fetus!
Carol (crafty-stamper) - all I can say is...I'm going to need pics, lots and lots of pics! lol
ON WITH THE SHOW
Today I reveal myself as the remaining design team member for the new mixed media challenge ANYTHING BUT CUTE. No surprise there I suppose, I've been yammering about it for over two weeks now!! lol
If you would care to hop on over an learn a little bit more about me, I have put together a few of my favourite mixed media projects from the last year for you to have a look at.
A BIT ABOUT THE BLOG
Although we are a mixed media blog, we do not require big giant projects that take all month to make. We would love to see all kinds of art - cards, tags, canvas art, journal pages, ATC cards, recycled art, you name it...as long as you have included at least one mixed media product in your creation, that's all we ask.
We really want to encourage artists who have never tried mixed media before or are new to the mixed media arts. Everyone has to start somewhere, so our design team will always be on the look out for budding new mixed media artists. We also want to encourage all you experts to try something new, or improve an old technique, so we will be on the look out for those special artist as well.
Once a month, we will be have a Spotlight Post featuring either one of our talented designers or a surprise guest. This is a post for tutorials, techniques, tips and tricks...you just never know who will be there and what they might be showing you.
We will also have a Feature Artist every month who will showcase a piece of mixed media art made especially for our challenge theme. These artists will be chosen from the winners of previous challenges.
We will also have the odd surprise post, that not even my design team knows about...I think I will keep the details of those under my hat for the time being.
Our first challenge starts in just 5 days, so grab a badge and hit that follow button so you don't miss any of the fun! ANYTHING BUT CUTE
