Pauline Frederick - Movie Star

This is for Ginger Snap's Once in a Blue Moon Challenge - GCSP07.  I chose to work with former challenge GC21 - Movie Stars.

I created an altered coaster honoring silent screen star Pauline Frederick.  I love the way Pauline is posed in this photo.  She had a startling beauty. She was a Broadway star before she turned to films, and was already well in her thirties when Hollywood beckoned.  Her movie career expanded to include talkies and she made her last film in 1938. 

I made the celluloid out of transparencies.  I used Distress inks over top of a gessoed surface on the card.  Crystal stickles on the flowers.


  1. Gorgeous! My friend has been making those altered coasters too. I'm going to have to give it a try. Hugs Tee
