Vintage Art Display

Last year, while visiting my sister, I started an art journal using a vintage Rolodex as a holder. I have had a great time using the Rolodex cards to do art journaling on and enjoy the smaller size and the fun way to display them. I have always been a sucker for office supplies....especially vintage ones!

This project has made me want to get creative with using vintage items and altered items as ways to display art journaling. So, as I am on the hunt for vintage items and getting creative with various ways to display art journaling and collage, I have added a new section to my Etsy shop where I will sell items similar to what I am using. I have also started a Pinterest board with ideas for using the type of ephemera and vintage items found in my shop. You can find the Pinterest board here.

The new items I have added to the shop are:

Vintage Math Flash Cards
Vintage Metal Rolodex
Look at the cute ideas for using the flash cards:

There are more ideas on my new Pinterest board. Watch my shop as I add vintage items I find along the way. {found on brighton}@Etsy


  1. I am sure someone has already bought that rolodex but I am looking for one soo bad. I have seen several crafters that are using them and I am so wanting to try my hand. Only I would use mine as a technique storage. And maybe a stamp image storage.

    1. Cody, I will be doing flea market shopping on a road trip in a week and will let you know if I find another Rolodex. :)

  2. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I love office supplies too. I ran onto your website last year and have really enjoyed your art work.
