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!

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.
