Bettie Page - The pin-up queen. That is the theme that Alison has so wonderfully chosen.
On April 22, 1923, a star was born. A star that we all know. A star that,
without her, Bombshell Stamps may not even exist (if I may be so presumptuous).
Who is it? None other than Bettie Page. What better month to pay homage to the
Pin-Up Queen herself than the month of her birth? So for this hop, I want you to
give Ms. Page some love. Make a project, any type of project, using her as
She is a very interesting woman. She has been a secretary, pin-up model, fetish model, actress, playboy playmate, expert witness to the FBI, Christian Missionary, institutionalized, inspiration for the love interest of a comic book hero, hand-painted on custom guitars - whew... that is a lot of stuff.
You should have arrived from Kim's blog. If you just happened along to my blog you should hop on over to the Bombshell Blog to start things out right!
Whenever I think of Bettie Page, I imagine the red with white polka dots - not sure why. So, I used that along with a shoe picture I saw. Some of the pics, I thought - maybe I needed to keep in mind that my website is PG. ;-)
Girl's Ruin and paper pieced the big shoe. I also used some W4 and W3 to give it some shading.
The sentiment was printed out onmto white paper, and I used the Bombshell Banner Sayings set to stamp over it. I then pasted it on the red paper, and then cut an outline out.
Now... the interesting point about this is the paper wasn't white dots. It was yellow. See below...
I took my white Reminisce gel pen and went over all of the yellow dots with it because I didn't have any red and white polka dot paper. :-)
Ok... Now that you have seen my take on Bettie - you should hop on over to Theresa's blog and check out what she has for you!
