Bathing Belles

I've made a fun little heart shaped album in a matching tin, using the Artistic Stamper's Seaside Plate and Gibson Girls Plate 2, for the launch of their new Creative Team Blog. These Graphic 45 'On the Boardwalk' papers are great. What is it I love about them? Is it the quality? Or the lovely soft vintage colours? Or is it the fact that the girls are unashamedly flaunting their white limbs, plump midrifs, and cellulite?! Makes me feel I could almost brave the beach! I think they had the right idea in those days, with the maximum coverage bathing suits - the men wore them too and look hideous - worse than Borat. The girls did worry about one thing we worry about today, though - Sunburn! Hence the advert for Frostilla I had to include on one of the pages - 'For irritated skin, golfer's neck, and hiker's foot!'



If you would like to see more of the pages, and how it was made, hop over to the new Creative Team Blog of the Artistic Stamper!
