Hint of Printable Valentine Project...Free vintage images


A 6x6 Rose sheet made from victorian scrap :)
This has a transparent background (for my Digital Art graphic addicts)  Or maybe you'd like to print this on some sheet music or some other paper of your choice?  Well my sweets, this is ready for you!

Here is the original.  I just love how the maker of my Victorian scrapbook made a lovely wreath of roses.

LOVE is in the air...Free Vintage Images

I worked on this heart scrap today and it was making me crazy because it just didn't look right.  Then I added the birdie!  Tada!  I am  also working on a printable Valentine project for you which I hope to post tomorrow.

Here is a pretty card which I have touched up...


 and here is the original
Just so you can get an idea of what I work with.  (LOVING the new Photoshop Elements 11)
Please "follow me" if you aren't already.  I sure would love to hear a comment or two.   I have been missing my Graphic Addicts and haven't heard anything but crickets- I know you can say the same about this blog-   but I have to pull that "my daughter had brain surgery" card!  :) Still seizure-free after a year and 6 months! (Thanking God daily!)
Goodnight sweet people.

True Love Begins...Free Vintage Images

True love...True love always reminds me of the Princess Bride.  So many fantastic quotes in that movie!  If you haven't seen it go out right now and buy it or look on netflix or something- You MUST watch the Princess Bride.  
 I had too much fun working on these for you today!  I tried to save the top image as a PNG file so it's background will be transparent....BUT, well, you know...I am learning so much each day and have missed my vintage graphics so much.  It was terrible!  Had to save as a jpeg.  Please bear with me as I get back into the swing of things.  Let me know if you are enjoying the images so I know I am not just using you as an excuse to be creative:)
Top image is created from "French Songs" sheet music (I removed "French Songs" to make a frame) and bottom image is from one of my stereoviews, "Pleasant Hours Off Duty" by T.W. Ingersoll.
Kufurahia!  That translates to "Enjoy" in Swahili ;)

Just a sweet sentiment of vintage images.  Being that many of "my people" live "across the miles" I thought this appropriate.  I hope you'll enjoy it!!

Miss Blogging and Creating so very much!

Hello fellow Vintage Graphicaddicts, I have hope that I will be returnig to my blog some day.  I miss it so very much and I miss the contact with all of the incredibly creative people out there.  My daughter passed the one year mark of remaining seizure free and actually got her driver's license which she never thought she would attain.  She has recently been nominated for the Epilepsy Foundations "Kid's Speak Up" http://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/getinvolved/advocacy/public/kidsspeakup.cfm/ in Washington DC.  I am so proud of both of my children for all they have been through this past year.  I wish you all many blessings for 2013 and I hope to be back here soon.  Until Next time :)
