These high-res scans of vintage printed and handwritten text can be used in a wide variety of mixed-media projects: put them down for backgrounds or rough tear for embellishing and that ripped wallpaper look that is so evocative. Please note that you may want to resize these images. (I like them quite a bit smaller. You may also need to print some images in landscape rather than portrait mode.) They include:
- French handwritten doc 1831
- Welsh text 1848
- Swiss German textbook page 1912
- Latin 1854
- French dictionary 1842
- Maths table (Warnes) [read more]
One of the questions I am asked the most often is where do I get my bird images. Well, I do actively search them out and then some just find me but yes, I have a lot of birds. So here are a few to share and add to your collage, art journals, altered books, or other mixed media work. To use these, click on an image for a larger resolution, then right click and copy. You can then add it to an editing program such as Paint. (I use Word. Even though it is not a visual platform per se, I am used to it.) You may want to resize these, make them larger or smaller. Happy Making!
