Do you wonder where you can get vintage images for your projects? I have a few places that I get mine. Two of the ones I use are The Graphics Fairy and The Vintage Workshop. Both have beautiful images, and I thought I would share one of my latest projects.
A business associate gave my husband and I a box of 3 Jack Daniel’s liquors for Christmas a few years back. The Jack was great – but so was the box and I could not get rid of it, but had no idea what I was going to do with it. Turns out I came to a point where I had a need for a display box for greeting cards in the shop I sell my cards and tags from – Lake Tahoe Holidays. So, I drug it upstairs, removed the door and began the process. Of course in my excitement, I forgot to take a photo before I added the paint – but, I did take a photo of the door this morning so that you could see the original color of the box…
Yep, dark brown. I painted it cream….
And began layering papers and clip art – the dictionary page and the background paper are both from The Graphics Fairy…
The beautiful swallow is also from Karen…..
The apple blossoms and French ephemera here are from The Vintage Workshop
I think I can see more of these in my future..
Take care friends, Dru
