March 2015 TTC

Postby Carolyn » Sun Mar 01, 2015 10:54 am

I thought as i had been making card this month I would set a challenge...

I want you to make a project with a retro theme/style, and if this doesn't inspire I need to see a project that includes beads....and ideally combine the 2 :)

Lovely cards Carolyn, such soft pretty colours too.

Right, my paper crafting stuff is still quite inaccessible but beady I CAN do. Hmmm, retro and beady!

Thank you. x

I hope that I have not made it too hard for everyone.

I can do some stamping, I also have a VW camper van and a vespa type of scooter.

anything from 50s to 70s would be good as retro.

I have some stamped images and old birthday cards to browse through. Am sure I will have something, but thanks anyway.

Failed miserably to do anything last month. I'm so out of the way of card-making. Not sure I can make any retro jewellery, but will have a think....

It can be any project to include beads - no retro required....

I will try and do this challenge this month as I failed last month. Did try to start but got very side tracked. I need to make a card for my aunt so this might fit in with it.

saw a teapot and cosy in BHS yesterday which I thought was lovely and had that retro feel, thought of this challenge! Can't see a picture on internet but it was a bit like this:

I am a bit confused about the meaning of "Retro."

I see it as vintage adverts, 50s and 60s but it can be of any era can't it?

Lovely card and image Liz. xx
