SouthernBelle faux magazine featuring Tonner Dressed up like Racehorses
Here I go again. Playing around. The blog has been called "hilarious"....and I can't help but agree that somehow the rantings and the imagination can be called such. So here's another hilarious and amusing attempt at making a Southernbelle faux magazine. Each doll is way more expensive than you think and each one comes with hard-earned saved money to serve the purpose. Each one is a reward. Cheesy it seems to write this way. But it's the truth. And for as long as this blog speaks my truth, it can be hilarious and crazy as it can be.
I've worked in the publishing business for 5 years and there with a creative job. Because of which, I've been made aware of the principles of layout. Hopefully, I am able to apply them here: blurbs on the cover of a magazine and the posing of the model on the cover and the number one rule: the cover must be worked out to be a grabber. The biggest blurb should capture the eye of the consumer to lead to a purchase. Eyes facing out, colors kept to a minimum. This is what guides me in making these little GWTW imagined magazines. While some blurbs here were patterned after a Vogue cover: that where Donald Trump gets a new bride, most of them are patterned after situations and some research on the 1800's world -- only seen thru the eyes of a modern magazine.
Thank you to all who have placed their generous comments and opinions in the blog. Truly each one is appreciated and inspires. I hope this one will delight you too.
PS. Also tried to put an opulent ring on Scarlett's finger there. It's been blurred though. Scarlett is a little shy of its size (smile!)
