Fashion editorial by June 1967

Next Sunday, June 4, 1967, will be published fashion editorial in the newspaper Nightly Comet bringing the latest trends for summer. By the way, it's amazing the size of the skirts the girls wear today. Judging by them, in the year 2000 people will be walking naked through the streets!

Digital Art for this week Three Muses challenge: NEWSPAPER.

Girls from Ladies Home Journal magazine of June 1967 at http://mostlypaperdolls.blogspot.com/ ; newspapers were googled; backgrounds and flowers: Crowabout.

Time flies, enjoy today

As a teenager I used to admire her beauty and vitality. Time passed, I almost forgot about her. Then, she had to face her illness and the way she fought it, her humanity, fragility and sincerity made me fall in love with her again. That's why I took her example to remind me (us) that time flies, life is short and the best we do is enjoy each day (without betraying ourselves).

This is my entry for this week Take a Word theme: Time.

Farrah Fawcett photos and backgrounds were googled; clocks: Dover and Graphicsfairy.

Dona Canô: window to the memories

Claudionor Viana Teles Velloso, or Dona Canô, is a 103-year-old beloved lady and mother of the famous Brazilian artists Caetano Veloso e Maria Bethânia. She's so charismatic that became a personality by herself and not only for being their mother.

Velloso's family photos were googled. Background by Smoko-Stock (deviantArt). The text is actually excerpts from the lyrics of the song Dona Canô you can hear by clicking below.

Women and cars

At the beginning we were drived or we lended glamour by posing beside them. But that became old-fashioned and we finally conquered the right of being behind wheels. Nowadays we can even choose not to drive, after all we have a whole bunch of more ecological choices, like the old bike or the new segway...

This is my take on the this week theme in Take a Word: OLD-FASHIONED.

I'm Old Fashioned

Hats? Hats!

Marion loves hats, but as good Libra, have a tough time choosing them. Right now, her problem is to choose one for a costume party. Yes! She first chooses the hat and then the clothes that fit them. If you were her, which hat would you choose?

This is my contribution for this week Three Muses challenge.

All Hepburn photos at Doctor Macro.

This is Phyllis, a collage a la Suzanne Sbarge for Digitalmania. As she has a flower-hat, I think she qualifies for the challenge too.

Phyllis: Graphics Fairy Flower: Redouté (Dover) Fishes: Dover

Ah! Don't forget you can leave your hat on!

Twiggy Face

Hi! This week the theme in Take a Word is FACES. I decided to stick to just one: Twiggy's. She had the most incredibly striking face of our time. Altough she was probably too skinny those eyes was impressive.

I googled all the photos. The background and the frames are Joanne Brisebois'.

Clumsy angel

If only I could play...

Hi, folks! I’m back! I was on vacation, then I had this project on deadline… Well, now I can do a little of this a little of that (those useless stuff I love…).

This is my collage for this week challenge on Three Muses: Angelic.

My angel has wings, they aren’t on the photo - which I took in Cuba - but they are there! The soccer game bellow him is a Portinari’s painting with some Portinari’s add-ons.

Cândido Portinari Torquato (1903 - 1962) is one of the most prestigious Brazilian painter. He was a prolific artist, unfortunately he left us early poisoned by the paints that made him famous.

Texture by Struckdumb. Foot cast was googled.
