Something I've been meaning to do for ages, is to start scanning various vintage ephemera, lace and embroidery. I want to use them in original art, but I also want to both save them, and share them.
Here are two images that are free for you to use in your own artwork, journal or collage. I'm currently playing around with the first collage sheet - I'll let you know what the end result is!
Just click to go to google docs, then File & download. You won't need a google account :-)
Vintage Lace 1
Collage page 1
The collage page has: the 'A' page from a old illustrated french dictionary, an illustration from an old Oliver Twist book, a transport tag, a recycled library book tag, and part of one of my altered pages to fill in the empty corner.
Please come back and share how you used these - I think they'd be great cut up as borders, backgrounds, or just interest elements on a page... what do you think?
