Tag Tuesday Challenge - Ephemera

The challenge this week at the Tag Tuesday blog is to use Ephemera. I have to admit that this was an easy challenge for me because I have tons & tons of ephemera - yes, I have a bit of a "problem!"  :)

I'm not sure about you, but when I hear the word "ephemera" the first thing that pops into my mind are vintage images of post cards, postage, love letters and butterflies. While all those images are beautiful and romantic, I wanted to try something just a bit different. The first thing I did was to stencil blue ink as the background. As I was looking through my images, the peacock caught my attention. It complemented the background color and for some reason the background reminded me of a fence - I know, what an imagination right?? Trying to emulate the shimmer of the peacock's colorful tail, I added sequins to it. I also added a few flowers, a piece of a paper doily to the bottom right corner and stamped the text Dream Big.

I hope you all like this week's tag and thank you for stopping by!!!  :)
