Blast from the past!
Trying to catch up with Emily's prompts and have managed to do the 'bedroom' prompt one :) We have had several hideous bedrooms due to moving quite a bit, the most recent horror being the red glossed walls in the maisonette we lived in three years ago! However, my most remembered room(especially by my family!) will be the first decor I chose when we moved in 1977 :) I chose some lovely (!!) jungle wallpaper, covered in lions , tigers etc with a blck background.And for the shelving unit that my Dad constructed I chose a delightful shade of lime/Kermit green called Jitterbug green.Yep, you can just picture such a wondrous combination can't you?! Sadly , by the time I out grew this combo, I had grown tired of the jungle animals and gouged most of their eyes out!! (it was backed with polystyrene stuff)Gosh, I'd be horrified if my kids were to vandalise their rooms such a way now! So there you have it, my truly unique 70's bedroom memories! I painted the card with acrylic paint and used a Heid Swapp mask for the flower.Sadly I have no pics of jungle animals to add more authenticity to it!
