Ephemera Castle

The July theme for the Documented Life Project is Ephemera.  Knowing this to be the case, I kept all my tickets and leaflets and maps from our travels around Britain.  The prompt “Life with a History” made me think of all the castles we visited on our trip* so I decided to collage a castle.  Simple as that.

The background is two different colours of Dylusions ink.  I thought the vibrant colours would make the collage elements pop out from the page more but ultimately I also outlined using Posca paint pen.  It was quick and simple but fun to create.

Week 27 - Life with a History - Ephemera

The crenellated main building and the two side towers were taken from a map to the Chalke Valley History Festival, the doorway is a ticket to Stonehenge, the turret roofs are a map of Edinburgh Castle, the flag is from the ticket into Edinburgh Castle and the windows are luggage claim labels from our flight and postage stamps.

 

*Stay tuned for future posts featuring castles.
