Another challenge at Soul Scrappers was to be inspired by the song "Wild Thing" by the Troggs. We were to use a word....OR a couple of words...OR a sentence...OR even the song title on our layout. I was inspired by the word 'groovy'. Here is my layout:
This photo was taken at my younger sister's 21st birthday party in 1972. I am grooving bottom right. I made the dress I am wearing. The photo was sitting for many years in the old style albums - you know the ones that made the photo stick to the backing with what I suspect was not acid free plastic and the photos eventually faded. I am endeavouring to give them a new home hence my recent fascination with scrapping these older photos.
Now I was never a 'wild thing' - just look at the photo closely the party was held in a local church hall that has since been demolished. I did love to dance and groove to the music.
I googled 1970's design and found lots photos to inspire me - here are just a few. Who can forget 'orange' it was everywhere - Tupperware (I had all these), Fabric, Furniture to name a few.
Thank you for grooving along with me this morning. Have a happening day!!! Margaret :)
