Just for Fun - The 60's and 70's

Von is leading the challenges this month at Just for Fun, and is taking is back in time starting this week with a revisit to her youth.  Well a lot of our youth as our first stop is the '60's and '70's.     Flower power, youth fashion, colour oh the memories come flooding back.


After a lot of soul searching I opted for a bit of Pop Art and a reminder of Flower Power.   Lots of bright bold colours, all Pro Markers, repeated in different combinations.   The stamp 'Hippie Flower' from Limited Editions rotated 1/4 for each square.


Do you have memories of the period or perhaps you have seen pictures and heard stories.  We would love to see your 60's/70's projects.   Von and Neet have each made a sample reflecting the variety of ideas from that time.   Pop over to Just for Fun to see them.


I've just realised that Moving along with the times have a similar challenge running and so am sharing this with them.

  2. This takes me back to my art student times when I loved the paintings of Warhol and such like. Also to the times I wore a flower in my hair and sang along to the songs of the time. Oh the thoughts of those heady days of summer you have awoke in my mind. Neet xx

  8. The only recollection i have of the 70's is a pair of bright yellow crimpolene ( very itchy ) hot pants I believed I looked very " groovy in them " Ah such is the innocence of youth. Love your pop art flower power piece of art very hip indeed.
