This is one of two bookmarks I`ve made for a ``bookmark mingle`` at Pages In Time.  The theme is "vintage" and I chose vintage movie posters.

This month is still all about Halloween for me - what is more nostalgic than our Halloweens as children - what was it that influenced costume choices?  Movies and TV.  Yep - born in the '50s.  (Hate to admit it but the '50s are vintage.)  Loved the old "Dracula and crew" movies, the hilarious but scary "B" movies which were on TV Saturday afternoons and of course WOZ was and still is a favorite!  Below this post are two vintage images of movie theatre tickets - just couldn't work them into these but do go and grab them.

I printed out the poster images - available in the public domain - wallet size and then arranged them into a collage 1 3/4 x 5 3/4" then adhered that to a black 2 x 6" mat.  Strengthened the whole with a few coats of Crackle Accent (tiny bit of warm highlights glitter thrown over) front and back and then wiped some Vintage Paper Distress Ink into the cracks.   The top is some vintage black seam binding.
