SCRATCH ART

IMG_3095

Have you ever tried scratch art? I found a little kit that had these black sheets, that have some sort of coating on them. There is four of them, of four different background colors, a stencil page you can use, and a wooden stylus to do the scratching. I used some of the stencils, but mostly just made up my own design. It was fun to do, and I was wanting to do some kind of art project.

A is for Army

As we were/are a retired Military family (U.S.Army), I’ve been an Army wife for all of our marriage. I support all troops, whichever branch they serve in. However, during the 60s and 70s, the war in Viet Nam was not a popular war, resulting in anti-war protests, draft card burning, protest songs, and calls for Peace, gaining national prominence in 1965.

Some protest songs of the era were: “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, “Masters of War” by Bob Dylan, “Eve of Destruction” by Barry McGuire, and “I Feel Like I’m Fixin’ to Die” by Country Joe & the Fish.

A is for Artists

During the 60s and 70s, many artists became very well known for their designs of music album covers, concert posters, and art depicting bright, psychedelic swirls and colors, including paisley, that the counter-culture took to immediately. Some of the artists were Salvador Dali, Peter Max, and M. C. Escher, among many others.
