Illustration Friday - 'retro'

Happy to be contributing over at Illustration Friday for the prompt word 'retro'. I've been immersed in art journaling lately and really loving silhouettes with text, images etc filling in the image
What's more retro than polka dots and miniskirts, right?

Anyhow, i traced an image loosely in a magazine, her skirt and hair were too modern-looking so I redid it and wrote the lyrics from a fave song "whiter shade of pale" (original band Procol Harum) 
however I love, love the Annie Lennox version.


"we tripped the light Fandango
skipped cartwheels cross the floor
i was feeling kind of seasick
but the crowd called out for more
and the room was humming harder
when the ceiling fell away...."

"whiter shade of pale" (1967 original version)

Be awesome, be well & creative - have a great week!

Laura, your art journal page is wonderful with the retro feeling. I am most impressed with the figure with the writing on it. Very creative.
