Here's a collage, entitled Confidential, that I completed today.
When I acquire vintage/antique ephemera, I tend to hoard the papers because I'm always saving them for the perfect mixed media art piece. Do you do that too?
Today I decided to use some of my ephemera. The dark brown paper, in this collage, came from the cover of a book published in 1938. The doctor's ledge paper has a date of 1848, That latter paper is 168 years old. The book pages are literally crumbling but the ledge paper is quite strong.
