Ephemera

We got back to the French cottage on the weekend, and I have just unpacked my little case of craft supplies which I had taken back to the UK and installed myself in the craftavan again ;-). Feels goooood!

I decided to go with a more masculine feel for the EPHEMERA tag. The background is part of the back page of an old unwanted sheet music booklet. The bit of map on the side is from a very old and redundant street map of Paris. The top and Nr. underneath are part of a French tea dance entrance ticket and the small squares with letters and dated Aout 44 are French WW2 coupons. I used tiny bits of the border from those coupon sheets as well. the bottom bit is an old cigar band, and the image of the guy is, well, just an image of a guy, lol -




Brilliant tags from everybody last week, what a feast for the eyes! As always, thank you so much for your kind comments.

  8. I love the way you framed the gentleman with ephemera that could have very likely been part of his own collection from everyday life. You also kept a very cohesive design through the use of color. Blessings!
