Julie: Layered Ephemera Tags.

Hi there.

Last week, those of you who read my blog, Notes on Paper, might have seen the first project I made using one of the gorgeous new range of paper roses now available at 3DJean.co.uk:

If you didn't already see it then this was the end result:

But, if you pop over and visit my original post you can also see the slideshow step-by-step tutorial I made to demonstrate how I built up the layers.

Once I'd made the first tag, for the card above, I carried on going using the same supplies to make more layered, ephemera pieces:

The base for these was a selection of blank kraft luggage tags and index cards from a stationery shop plus the following 3DJean supplies:

Now here's how all of that, combined with ribbon from my stash and some 7Gpsies wording stickers, looked when I'd finished:

I loved mixing the snooty fat Art Chix cat image with the cigarette card of King Charles!:

And I'm really pleased with how the contrast of periwinkle blue and orange worked here:

And finally, I think one's my favourite: As I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment on the sticker:

"She knew with the right amount of junk she could create a masterpiece"!!!

How about you?

It's kind of exactly how I felt about making these tags so I hope they've made you feel like looking through your stash and throwing together some random, eclectic ephemera ... topped off with a paper rose or two.

It's a great way to use up stash and try out new, slightly eccentric, interesting combinations of both imagery and supplies.

Thanks for reading today, see you in a couple of weeks time. Until then, don't forget to look at the step-by-step here on my blog.

Julie :-)

p.s: If you're at all intrigued by the 'Flawed Work of Art' frame in the background of my photos, it's something I made for a Copy+Paste challenge last year, which you can read the full story here.


  1. Junk! another name for preciously collected bits of treasure!
