Victorian Lavender Lace – Digital Elements and Printable Cards

Hello Peeps 🙂

I’m on vacation up in the mountains, with no internet, but today I have had a day back home to restock and regroup…lol  And I enjoyed a lot spending a little time on my dear old puter, so tonight I want to share what I created in my vacation whimsy, based on pretty lavender lace found over on Leaping Frog Designs. First a seamless tile:

1911 French Musical Cherubs – Free Printable Collage Sheets

Just when you thought the cherubs could not get any sweeter, I give you these stunning french musical cherubs! Roses, clover, forget-me-nots, daisies and violets… bluebells, lily-of-the-valley, I think almost all the “classic flowers” are here 🙂 And notice the pretty birdies on each of these!

And to even out the number, to make TWO collage sheets for you, I’m throwing in two bonus french postcards, also with cherubs and roses. On the last one, I belive the postmark date is 1906, and the only sure reference I have for the musical cards is 1911 handwritten on the back of one of them.

I can’t believe I have not posted for over a week! And no new cherubs for ages 😦 Well here are a few!! Cute winged cherubs and fairies, tending gorgeous floral hearts, surrounded by doves. Roses, forget-me-nots, daisies and pansies… and all pastel colors, it’s almost overwhelmingly pretty 😀

I told you before, I enjoy trying to complete sets, and I never know if I have all in a set,  but I think this set must have at least most of them 🙂

So TWO collage sheets for you today:

I am also very sorry to tell you that it looks like I can no longer upload the full 600 dpi images for you 😦 I am quickly running out of storage space, and I am not prepared to pay for extra storage space 😦 So until I can come up with a free solution that works, all I can share is the pdf to my google drive. The images should still be in very good resolution, suitable for most crafting purposes, but you might not be able to print them poster size anymore…:-P Click on Download below the preview to get individual images.

1875 Bébé Devient Savant – Free Tiles & Papers

I love the amazing Flickr pages of pillpat (agence eureka)! Not only has she thousands of vintage French items, she shares them willingly with the world! According to copyright laws these images now belong in public domain, and in my opinion s-h-o-u–l-d belong to all of us. But it is not thereby said that anyone is willing to do the ginormous work of scanning, aligning, cropping, uploading and managing them on the internet, so thank you pillpat and everyone else that is willing to share like this!!

Today I have worked with the back cover page of the 1875 book “Bébé Devient Savant”. I don’t speak French (although I’m utterly in love with the language, and sincerely believe I will live in southern France when I get old) so I used google translate for this title, and figured it should mean something along “baby becomes learned” so I guess it’s a book for small children.

I fell in love with the swirls! So indeed I have isolated them into a seamless tile:Wings of Whimsy: 1875 Bébé Devient Savant Seamless Tile - free for personal use

and worked with some PNG variations (transparent backgrounds) –  these are also well suited as tiles, to print on textured paper, or layer with other designs:
