For Week 5 at Journal 52, our prompt was Television. Most of you who have been around my blog a long time know I'm still old school when it comes to that technology. I still only watch TV after I've taped it. YES, taped, as in VCR.
So, today I give you my take on Television.
I'm old school!
OK, maybe not THAT old school, but at least the gal has a remote control in her hand! And look at that tea pot just waiting for tea time. Did people really live like that in the 60s? I ask because I got this image from a 1967 National Geographic.
Were the decorations cutting edge, or soon forgotten? And how does that relate to TV, since I don't watch the home improvement shows?
We were told that television was the prompt for week 5, so I showed a bit of old school. As for genres I like? Mysteries, mysteries, mysteries, drama, action, sci-fi, history, PBS, and did I mention mysteries?
No chick flicks, no reality TV, no comedies with those horrible laugh tracks. And no commercials, if possible. Materials used to make this retro inspired journal page were an image from a 1967 National Geographic, image from a fashion magazine, large red doily, handmade shimmering mist, gold pen, black pen, and of course, a used file folder.
Thanks for taking time to visit and laugh at my Old School take on television. I appreciate your comments and apologize that I've gotten another bug/virus that has settled in and refuses to leave my already weakened immune system. Forgive me if I haven't visited, but making the required challenge art is about all I have the strength for right now. I'll be by to catch up soon.
