Vintage images on shapes - paper grab bag - for crafters.


I've been busy making these the last few days. I love doing them. They are so much fun!

I've also sold about half of them.
I use vintage images, vintage book pages, old ledgers - some even have handwriting on them, over 100 years old.

I used to sell them to other crafters at a mall/coop I was part of.
I loved seeing the things they made with them!

Rare ACEOs for sale - art from the pioneers of the ACEO movement.

I have been the proud owner of a wonderful collection of ACEOs.
For personal reasons I need to downsize.

Have a look at some of the wonderful works I've listed already on my 2nd ID, on eBay.
This is a chance to own work that you may have missed out on in the past, and probably won't see in the future...

Fawn on ledger paper from the 1800s.


Sold the other two works I did on old ledger paper. This one is slightly different.

A couple of weekends ago spied two fawns, and managed to capture an image of them. Just SO cute. I couldn't resist doing this in ink like I did with the ducklings and the rabbit.

Don't know why I like adding the printed element, but somehow, it's modern mixed with old, and leads you to interpret the image as something more. I also like adding color, without adding it to the inkwork.
