Art Journal Challenge - Week Five...

Well, this week with Emily's Art Journal Challenge.. i learnt a *new* word!! lol!

The prompt for this week: "use some ephemera from your week"


Hmmmm, first thing to do... find out... WHAT IS 'ephemera'?
Easy! Dictionary meaning: Ephemera refers to written and printed matter published with a short intended lifetime.


So, i thought about doing parking tickets from a shopping center! I have lots of those! Then i thought doctors bills cos i've been to the doctors a lot but then B-I-N-G-O!!! I got it!! A sheet of paper from the docket/order pad at work!!

I work for my parents as a waitress in their beautiful restaurant! We go through hundreds of docket books! We couldn't take orders without them! So i've stuck one of those to the card and also added a photo of some biscuits dad makes in the restaurant and also our business card!

I Love this challenge!! Emily comes up with the most original prompts each week!!
