Mixed Media ephemera trophy My latest project

 Hi guys! I wanted to share what I have been working on lately. This is a mixed media trophy piece. I love the shape of an urn. It reminds me of vintage folk art and theorems that had a lot of urn shaped motifs.

 I covered this with all vintage and antique papers.

 I finished it with a heart of vintage wallpaper. Behind that is an antique prescription slip from Morristown, TN.

I really like how this turned out.

 If you wanted to display it all "white", just turn it around! I think it would look great filled with feathers.

 I used vintage French text prose and poetry..palest grey green floral vintage wallpaper snippets because I love the subtle color..

 Also antique dictionary pages, vintage sheet music..opera I think...I had to finish the inside too.

 Also strips of antique ledger paper from a SD road tax ledger..You can see the town of Clear Lake on the front of the cup. I liked this yellow-y bit that says Edmunds (county) for its pop of color. I adore old ink script!

A yummy layering of papers..I like to give a glimpse of the origins of the papers. Someplace on here it even has the ledger printer's name from Aberdeen, SD.

 I need to make some scrapbook paper this way..

I like the touches of pink from the ledger pages too.

 Of course I had to finish the bottom.. (need to sign this yet!) Off to my Etsy shop it goes! I hope you all are having a blessed, productive week too... it has been rainy here which makes weed pulling in the garden easier. We have been eating fresh raspberries and garden lettuce..yum! Until next time! Julia
