#432 Retro


Hey everyone!  We are taking a walk through the past for this new challenge.  Our theme is Retro.  Now if you are unfamiliar, retro means imitative of a style, fashion, or design from the recent past.  Maybe for you, retro is out of the 60s or maybe its the 80s. It could be a pattern, it could be a theme etc.   This is a pretty broad challenge and we can't wait to see what you do with it!

Check out these cool projects from the DT!


So technically my layout isn't retro...yet!
But it will be someday! LOL
I was inspired by the music themed art to create this 
12x12 Traditional Paper layout about my current character obsession:
Ned from the Twenty-One Pilots "Chlorine" video.
Isn't he cute?!
I used a really old 12x12 PP, a really old sticker border and a few other old-ish 
items from my stash

Read more about my layout and my process on my blog. 
You can also watch the "Chlorine" video and see Ned in action! :)

We visited a retro store while on holidays.


For me retro means going back to the 1980s when I was a teenager.  Cassette tapes were seen as really modern then and the ultimate tape was a mix tape.  I've used a stamp from Visible Image plus some retro style backing paper to make my card - I still love listening to the songs from 1982!
