Two Rewind Projects and The Top 1970s Movies! Can You Dig It!?

The Godfather

Are you ready for two great Rewind Projects?!  Great!  Before I get to the fantastic artwork, here are some quotes from the Academy Award winning movies from the 1970s.  See if you can guess which movies they are from.  You will see the movies listed at the end of today's post.  Good luck! 

If Mr. McMurphy doesn't want to take his medication orally, I'm sure we can arrange that he can have it some other way.

All right, Popeye's here! get your hands on your heads, get off the bar, and get on the wall!

A relationship I think, is like a shark. It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.

There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

The place is great...It's like a resort...I mean they got basketball, bowling...Princess Grace came to see us the other day.

We built a life together. We wake up and have breakfast and I take him to school and then I pick him up after school and we have dinner together and...I read him a bedtime story...I'm not always the perfect father...but I'm there. I'm there.

An entire world at war and I'm left out of it? God will not permit this to happen! I will be allowed to fulfill my destiny!

Yo, Adrian, it's me..

Today I am posting Rebecca's and Sally's projects!  Rebecca is a Bloggerette and a terrific artist!  Her work is simply stunning.  You can find her and her work on her blog, A Rabbit In The Garden.  Sally is from "Down Under."  She is also a fellow Bloggerette and a great artist.  Check out her work at Sally's Journey

Thanks Rebecca.  Here's looking at you:

This 6 x 4 card is for Rewind Week at the Bloggerette Sorority commemorating the 1970's. I was in my twenties in the seventies, and it was a tumultuous time. Forty years later, I have no fondness for the colors or fashion of that era! It was a time of Love and Peace (not really!), drugs, Afros, Disco, Flower Children, unrest, Nixon's resignation, gas shortage and much more. I'm not nostalgic about the 1970's!

The background of the card is a floral burlap. The peace symbol is red metal (although the red isn't showing very well). I attached it to a tag in seventy colors with a firecracker brad, because it was an explosive time! Of course, you can't think about that decade without including bellbottom pants, and these have psychedelic colors swirling on them. The card is finished off with metallic painted grungeboard letters and numbers and I used a Gold Leaf pen around the edges.

Thanks to you Sally.  Your project is great:

The Inspiration for my project was my top that I wore in the seventies and have never parted with. Not so much the style of it or the colour but the memories of that time in my life, I grew up in the seventies, became a teenager, learnt how to ride a bike, had a horse, got my first boyfriend, it was a mad time but I wouldnt change it for the world.  So this is my 1970's! 

My project consists of memorabilia from the seventies, my beautiful purple hoop earrings, a piece of my ballroom dancing dress and some of my medals, a flatsy doll (it is a reproduction ~sigh) but they were a big thing in the late seventies and I loved them also a Holly Hobbie Doll, I have quite a few.  Watching Lost in Space on TV in black and white I still remember fondly, my brothers and I used to rush home from school to get all our chores done to sit down and watch it.  And everyone had Dragstar Bikes and I spent many hours happily riding with my brothers and friends.  I was 15 or 16 when Saturday Night Fever came out and I was an avid ballroom dancer and it was all about the glitter, disco fever, the frilly costumes, big hair and the fashion, being a girly girl I loved to wear dresses and my mum did a great job making the pant suits with the puffy sleeves and big flowers and the gorgeous floaty dresses, I felt like a princess!!  I grew up in the Seventies and it was awesome!

My name is Sally-Anne Russell and my blogs are "Sally's Journey" and "SallyBarbie"they are personal blogs about my journey in life thus far.

This was a fun post. I only got two movies, and the artwork really had a lot of thought put into both.
