For your boudoir perhaps, m'lady?

A vintage old page from a dictionary with corsets on it inspired me to print an old Victorian illustration image of a woman and corset.

But it also inspired me to take it a little further. I embellished the printed page with two heart shapes that have Victorian pink roses on them, and further with a scalloped shape with another lady in a corset - this time in the color red.

This paper is from 1902, and is a genuine page out of a ledger, handwritten, and includes a purchase of a box of snuff. Around this shape, I decided to enhance with watercolor.

Altogether a pretty, romantic image for someone's boudoir. Yours perhaps?

Custom OOAK art journal - lighthouse theme.

This is another recycled/mixed media 4x6" art journal - images, writing pages, sketch pages, and watercolor paper. Many papers are unique, and OOAK. Images collected and selected and put together in this journal. The cover shows vintage images, and although not of lighthouses, it shows how much lighthouses were valued - angels to the ship captain lost in a storm.

This journal was done by private request, so it's not available to purchase. Images are old and new, papers are old and new. Some papers are over 100 years old. A fun journal, for sure!

Do you have a favorite theme?

New ACEO printable background download - Vintage images little girls.

Well this was fun to make. Took me quite a while choosing these. The background is from a book inside cover from 1884 - a catalog from Chicago. It includes some penciled handwriting from that time, where it had been adhered to the cover, then torn off. Adding to the vintage feel.

What was fun was working on the background 'blank', to make up something that someone would possibly create. Available as an instant download!
