I've been collecting old women's magazines for a long time and have a few duplicates that are in very poor condition. I've had the idea of using them in projects for ages and this week's Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge produced an idea for this card. I've used scraps from a page of fashion tips titled "Gay London Gossip" - one of my favourite reads. I love the elegance of 1950s fashions and as money was short for most families at this time there are always ideas for updating one's wardrobe one's self at very little expense. ;o) Here are a couple of charming pages from July 1952 and April 1953. Do click on this Gossip page and read the text - it will definitely make you smile!
I'll be editing this post in the morning when I've taken a photo in daylight - as usual I'm entering the challenge in the last couple of hours which is the middle of the night here - done that now!
