Erika's theme, "Every journal page tells a
story," inspired this Friday Smile. I apologize that this photo is hard to see, but my scanner no longer works with or talks to my computer and it was quite dark in my craft room when I took these photos. I'll let you peruse these pictures, taken from a 1977 Family Circle Magazine, and my interpretation of them.
In January, 1971, the U.S. Congress passed the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act, which banned all advertising of cigarettes on television and radio.
After the television ban, most cigarette advertising took place in magazines like Family Circle, newspapers, and on billboards. In 2010, tobacco companies were further banned from sponsoring sports, music, and other
cultural events. They were also prevented from displaying their logos or products
on T-shirts, hats, and other apparel.
My friend Erika used an old National Geographic magazine in one of her journal entries. It reminded me that I had used turpentine (a very scary and smelly product that MUST be used outside) on some of my own National Geographic pages. That's the background on this journal page. The substrate is a used file folder, and of course, the images were cut from the 1977 Family Circle Magazine. I hand wrote the words on a piece of heavy card stock that had been left in the sun.
Thanks for joining me today as we shared a Friday Smile with Annie and joined Art Journal Journey with this humorous tale. I am always grateful when you drop by, although I may not say it often enough.
