The 20th Century

Another fortnight has gone by and it's time for another Craft-Room Challenge, it's Zoe's turn to choose the theme and she has chosen The 20th Century.

Here is what she has to say about the challenge.

For this challenge I thought we might look back to the last century.   Enough time has passed since 2000 for the edges to have blurred and softened, so we have 100 years of events; fashion, memories and history to draw on.    Your project can be anything at all that is clearly and distinctly 20th Century in inspiration.    Little reminder here Steampunk is Victorian in style and that is 19th Century so a Steampunk character will not qualify, we are looking here for echo's of the 20th Century.   Please tell us how your have been inspired for your project.

Our sponsors for this challenge are: Tando Creative. One lucky winner drawn at random will get a surprise parcel from Di the owner.

I wasn't sure what to do for my DT piece as there is a lot of material to choose from, in the end I chose the Swinging Sixties, I was a teenager in the sixties and have lots of happy memories, the music and fashions were fabulous. I remember flower power, the ban the bomb marches and I love the bright colours of pop art.

For my DT piece I've done a journal page, I used felt tips to colour it in.

The rest of the DT have made some lovley samples, they would love you all to visit the Craft-Room to take a look.

  5. Ban the Bomb, right on sister….. they say if you remember you were not really there we are the fortunate ones old enough to remember but still at school and more onlookers and activists during those times. I love your page memories flooded back. XOXO Zoe
