Leisure/Vapaa-aika - TAW



I altered the cover page of Good Housekeeping family magazine which was published in 1915. 
It's amusing many ways: I wonder if there were leggings at those days or are they stockings with swimming shoes? And the editorial topics are really funny.
I think this kind of "twilight sleep" of a housewife 
could be leisure time;)
I made edges in PSE, the light effects, and flowers are Kryztal Rain's. The cover is a freebie from Internet.
Here is the original cover:
Alkuperäinen kansi

Muokkasin Good Housekeeping aikakauslehden kansikuvaa. 
Lehti on ilmestynyt vuonna 1915.
Se on hämmästyttävä monella tavalla: ihmettelen, oliko jo tuolloin leggingsejä vai ovatkohan ne sukat uimakenken kanssa? Ja nuo toimituksen aiheet ovat tosi huvittavia.
Ajatelin tämän perheenemännän "päiväunelmoinnin" olevan myös
 vapaa-aikaa :)
Reunukset tein PSE:a, valoefektit ja kukat ovat Kryztal Rainin. Kansi on ilmaiskuva netistä.

Lovely piece, and the magazine loos very interesting - I think the women had very different lives then! Hugs, Valerie

A very creative idea and beautifully done. Perhaps the twilight sleeping was a sort of day dreaming! xx

It seems to me that nighttime would be the time for skinny dipping. She must have been a very proper lady!
