Jounral 52 week 27

scan washed it out some, more vibrant in real life
WOW! we are starting on the second half of the Journal 52, a journal page a week for a year.  This week the prompt is NOSTALGIA.
Nostalgia is defined as "a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations."

Was this my favorite period with happy associations?  Well, yes and no.  I love the 60's for the art that came from that era, the fashions were fun to wear ( hip huggers and bell bottoms oh my!), and some of the music still plays on my I-Pod, and we had just moved to California.  Was I a hippie? no not really (my parents would have killed me.....grin)  I was really more into the surfing scene and music.  The 70's began my life I have now, getting married and having two sons, disco music (ha, ha, remember that?),  some really funny sit-coms on TV (do you have a favorite you remember?) learning to water ski and snow ski, having a cabin in the mountains........all good memories.

This page has so many layer, I can't even begin to describe it. I wasn't happy with the way it was going with the 60's doodle work, then there were too many smudges to correct.  A wash of Gesso, and then some ink spritz......oh no!  I went for the numbers, wiping off some of the ink to show a peak of what was under it, then the baby wipes smeared the edges so I could just list things that came to mind during that time.  So it became a hell of a mess, but in the end I do like it ........somewhat.....LOL

  1. Love the journal page! Great tribute to the 60's and 70's! Love the swirly writing on the page!

  2. I really love this great journal page and the tribute to the 60's -70's.

  3. Hi Krisha!

    Thanks for the shout out!! :) With the journal page... even if you ran into difficulties i think it turned out great...maybe not what you wanted but pretty great anyway!! LOL! Don't you hate that scanners tend to wash things out..uuughh... My scanner and i go round and round about that... You work so hard to get those vibrant colors then you can't even show it off. :)

    Lets see i was too little to remember the 60's but the 70's a little more... I have this vivid memory of my older brother washing his Volkswagon Bug in the front yard with the radio blaring Afternoon Delight or Beach Boys... LOL! Good memories! Hugs! deb

  4. Yesterday I looked up the town i grew up in and was unable to recognize it. The memory it brought back was a visit their 15 years ago and getting lost trying to find the house I grew up in. It is why i am not sentimental. After a little digging found some images. Your idea of music is a far better choice of nostalgic.

  5. Krisha, I am SOOOOO impressed with how you've kept up your awesome journal pages--have to admit, I'm a miserable failure at it, but absolutely love looking at everyone else's!!!


  6. OK, I have NO idea how I missed this one, but I really like this one. I like all the things people (maybe even you) did in the 60s and 70s. Acid rock may be my fav (grin).
