These colors seem reminiscent of the late 1960s and the early 1970s… It was all about breaking out of the mold and trying out new things.  It was about breaking the rules and  changing the rules.  What seems so vintage now was revolutionary back then.

I thought that I’d use two colors which may seem to clash – or belong together in a psychedelic print – and bring them together in one cake.  I can almost imagine these colors together in printed fabric or individually as polyester jersey dresses.

This was, of course, way back when polyester was celebrated and not viewed as a potential environment hazard as it is now.  Ah, how times change… Now, it’s inspiringly about “Going Green” and caring about Mother Earth.

Hopefully, further down the road, there will be more evolved and enlightened practices which would permeate global consciousness. However, I digress.

Happy viewing!
