“Ephemera” was one of the first art journaling words I learned, and it’s really just anything you come across that you’d love to add to your journal page. It can be bought, found, cut out, torn out, unpeeled, unglued, unstapled (you get the idea), then saved and stashed for later. At the moment, I have three folders full.
Inside one of the folders are mail remnants. To me, there’s nothing worse than seeing a trash bag filled with paper sitting next to an empty recycle bin. So, I do my little part and save the security envelopes inside the junk mail that comes to our house. I never realized how many great patterns there are, mostly in black or baby blue – I love them all. Here’s one that I glue-sticked down and lined over for journaling later.
You might never look at your mail the same again! Have a closer look at tomorrow’s to see what’s interesting…
REUSE, RECYCLE, REJOICE!
