SOC Week 2

 
 
My color sheet for this week

I find it funny how color association works on memories.  There is something about pinks and orange colors take me back to the 60s, it was such a colorful time.  All the "flower" children were matching up colors that nobody had really dared to do in fashion until then.
 
This week I didn't make my page when the girls were doing theirs, I wanted to see where they would go with the colors on their own. (I'll be posting theirs next.)  So it was rather late when I finally started my page and REALLY late when I finished it....LOL. 
 
I did start with Gesso, but then went with acrylic paints, and a new stencil for the background.  The letters are some old grunge board letters I painted, along with the retro flowers.  The other shapes are die cuts, I had just gotten a new Cricut  summer cartridge, and wanted to play with it......*grin*  Once EVERYTHING was on the page I did some journaling with a black Pitt pen.
 
As I look at the photo those surf boards look more like psychedelic pickles...............LOL!!!! 
 
 
Are you playing along with Summer of Color this year???  If not.....you should be.....this is what is up for grabs this week!!  Yep, Kristin has weekly prizes!!!!

  6. A bit before my time, but I never thought of the 60s when I was looking for inspiration for my piece. You came up with a very unique and fun journal page, and I'm sure, with help from your SOC entry, the psychedelic era will return again (Grin).

  8. What a fun piece, Krisha! You reminded me (although I'll only admit it here) that I had a psychedelic flower dress in hot pink and orange that I wore under my High School graduation gown!

  9. That is a great way to see those colors, the 60's brights sure were the first brights to take over every facet of life. Those hippy colors and flowers in your hair!
    Great work and the kids are doing great.

  12. What a great page - you're right about the retro feel of the colours, and you've captured that vibrant carefree 1960s feel perfectly. So sorry I haven't been around - life's too busy!

  14. Okay - so there's nothing like a few "Psychedelic Pickles" now and then. Actually, I saw surfboards first. And I love the composition. Like a fiery 60's beach party at sunset.
