July Theme - Ephemera , July 4
Art Challenge: Using Old Maps, Letters, Tickets & More
Journal Prompt: Life...with a history
I had all my travel ephemera out for last month's challenge. As I sorted sundry pieces into categories, I became distracted by all the stories they told. To continue engagement with all these goodies, I decided to use them to meet the ephemera challenge.
Baggage tags, tickets, dinner receipts, key cards, labels, dried flower, and lots of translucent receipts from shopping provided materials for a background. After I arranged and glued everything, I added some chop stamps, and a silkscreen I made from a vintage Chinese book.
This collection of ephemera goes back at least twenty years, and it reflects many of my foreign adventures that define me, hence the title, "Life with a History."
