Fat Book Pages for August - Independent

Fat Book Page - (Front) An Independent Woman

This is the 2nd half of the August Fat Book Pages (the cowgirl was the first).
I chose Susan B. Anthony for my independent woman.
She never married, did not need a man to gage her success or worth,
and she fought for civil rights, civil liberties, and as most of you know, our right to vote.
There are some awesome quotes from her, the 'Independence is Happiness' is from her, which went perfectly with the theme, yet my favorite is:

Men their rights and nothing more;
women their rights and nothing less.

*******

Supplies/Techniques:
Note: A silver dollar was created of Susan B. Anthony in 1999.
One of my ideas was to create a pocket and put a real Susan B. Anthony coin in it,
until I discovered how rare the coins are!
So, I 'created my own' .
The front and back of the paper coin are attached to acetate,
so the coin can be seen on both sides
(I punched a circle through the darker card stock).
Stamps: Purple Onion Design (flourish) on front and back. Sugarlump Studios (key) on back.
Images from the web.
Ink: White Cotton & Timber Brown Stazon; Ranger Distress Vintage Photo.
Versamark.
Patterned Paper and darker card stock: CTMH
Acetate (covers entire front) - Top Layer.


Thanks for Looking!
