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:

Notice how pretty the last version will be as a frame 🙂 You can either grab my gilded version, or the black one that you can color yourself in photoshop or other software!

And here are some papers with these digital elements, I included the original book cover with the download:

    1. Thank you 🙂 I have now added one more tile (the middle star) and some various papers I made with these. I’m starting to prepare for the royal baby, thinking baby colors and what fun we can come up with for the birth…lol
