Favorite Find Friday – Mixed Media Ephemera

Welcome Friday! You can tell it’s summer now in Alabama. I bought peaches, new sandals (in which Kevin said, “New shoes? You have more shoes than anyone else in the house.” I just laughed. I live with him and two teenage boys of course I HAVE more shoes than them!!!) I picked blackberries, made a cobbler, grilled out, slept late. Love summertime. The cobbler was Peach and I used a Cooks Illustrated recipe. It was very good.

Last week my Favorite Find Friday was Ephemera. Still having trouble spelling it but this week in my Treasury I am showing you what artist do with it. But first… Earlier this year I took an ecourse by Jeanne Oliver called Creatively Made. It was totally awesome, she is totally awesome. (In fact she is offering it again if you are interested.) In a nutshell the course is about using the gifts God gave you to bless others. Jeanne shares such a positive message along with teaching you art projects/techniques each week. Our first week was journals. I made this Altered Journal. You start out with an old book and take it apart and use the covers to create a new book and put old ephemera in the middle to make your own journal. It’s full of ticket stubs, postcards, magazine pages, blank paper, water color paper, bingo cards, wallpaper,….. Ephemera!!! I had a lot of this type supplies anyway from making cards and other mixed media products. A friend that took the course too came over and we made them together and 6 hours later we had two journals. I love the sarcasm of this one! Cracks me up.

A prayer journal for my Mother. You know the power of a praying mom!!

Now for Favorite Find Friday….I gathered a variety of items I found on etsy of artist using ephemera to create art I thought would be appealing to you. Again you can click on any of these pictures and it will take you to that person’s Etsy shop so you can see the picture closer and read about their art.  I hope you enjoy it.

Have a great weekend. Katey
