I just love packaging that features vintage drawings of women... the hair styles, the makeup, the clothing -- fascinating! The Barinet and Jac-o-net packaging uses glamorous women, and the Set Snug and Forma brands would seem to appeal to the girl-next-door type. Want to bet that the Barinet and Jac-o-net brands were more expensive?
How do you use ephemera like this in your artwork? I like the trend that has straight-laced looking apron-clad moms making outrageous statements, such as "After a couple of Vodka Tonics, I just love to vacuum!" Those always make me laugh.
Below is a spread from my (under construction) "Remains of the Day" journal, a journal made with scraps and ephemera. I sewed a Barinet hairnet package into my ROD book as a pocket for journaling.
How are you using ephemera in your art projects? I'd love to hear from you in the Comments.
