The Documented Life Project

July Theme
Ephemera
July 4
Art Challenge: Using Old Maps, Letters, Tickets & More
Journal Prompt:  Life...with a history

I wanted this to have a vintage look to it so I went with neutral colors. The tag and assorted pieces were inspired by a tag I saw while searching online for printable ephemera. I used some lace stickers, numbered tape, a piece of muslin that I stamped on and a scrap of burlap that I glued a button to. The needle card was printed and cut. I arranged the pieces then did some messy zig zag  stitching to hold it all together before I glued it to the page.

So, if more Mexicans knew how to document their life like this, Trump would be happy?

I LOVE it! My art journal never looks as good as yours! I don't have the talent for it like you do.
