This one practically assembled itself on the page. Kristin pointed out the picture of the woman and said, "Use her on a page." So I did!
(Heather, when I was working with the autumnal colors I couldn't help thinking of you! :) )
I suppose this page evolved because of the shopping on my mind. I wanted to do a black and white layout and these pictures went together so well. I like that there are 4 different eras of fashion depicted.
I know you are just holding your breath until the next installment. Stay tuned....I believe there are still two more in this 'weekender' series. Aren't you excited??!

I have a bazillion old Rol-a-dex cards that I thought would be fun to alter. I began trying out my discovery in different colors and couldn't stop!
I love to work with artist's chalk, but for some reason have never stamped directly onto it. When I attempted it on chalked background on an altered book page, the stamped image was practically invisible. So I touched it--rubbed my finger across the still damp ink. The chalk was absorbed into the ink and the image popped out in the most brilliant color, a darker version of the chalked background! ( A light ink color allows the chalk color to be it brightest.) That is when I started making these little Rol-a-dex cards and could not stop. These are unfinished pieces really, but illustrate the technique.
This is definitely something new to me that I will be using again and again.
More 'new' things can be seen here.

This is a very simple piece. I only used gel medium, stick-on letter tiles, real shells, and a sprinkling of irredescient glitter. It is quite peaceful to me.
