The Swingin' Sixties

Born in 1963, I'm on the tail end of the Boomer Generation, but my memories of the 60's are likely quite different from a typical 'boomer' (debut of Sesame Street comes to mind).  When I think of the 60's though I immediately flash to acid rock, hippies, acid trips and the Vietnam War.


For my tag this week I used an image of Jimi Hendrix, an icon from my adopted home, Seattle.  His music exemplifies the 60's for me.  I used Distress Paints to attempt a bright, psychedelic background and a die-cut peace to symbolize war protests.

Great tags this week, everyone!

  11. Julie I like the scraped effect you achieved with the distress paint. I have only just begun to explore these. The Jimi Hendrix records are still in a cupboard - such a wonderful time in my life!
