Ephemera







Finding very old paper (ephemera) is a passion of mine. Scouting antique shops, thrift shops and estates sales brings the occasional thrill of finding these historical bits of paper. Widely used in altered art, collage, and mixed media the old documents lend a dignified, nostalgic feel to art with actual history. Here's a few samples of finds that are in or were sold in my Etsy shop.
