I'm guessing you might have heard the same things. The photo on the right was taken in a photo booth at my local Woolworth's, when I was in junior high. My friend Janie and I made silly faces, definitely not smiling.
These memories came to me when I was working on a collage for the NW Collage Society Spring Show. At first, I played around with vintage makeup ads aimed at teens in the 1970s -- my era. Remember Bonnie Bell "lip smackers"? Or "Baby Doll" makeup? Or "kissing potion"?
I incorporated these ads into the background of my collage, along with illustrations of dolls from the same era -- Barbie, Crissy, and Kissy (of course!)
