Altered Book Cover Kit: Free Scans

These scans go with a Youtube video I made where I altered a vintage book cover. You can scroll down to see the video and then you can use these scans to do something similar. Just click on any image for a larger resolution then copy then paste into an editing program such as Paint. (I use Word. It’s not really a visual app but it’s what I’m used to from when I learned by doing it wrong.😁)

The book cover is for sale here.

I have more scans on Etsy [read more]

Altered Postcards With Vintage Birds

These altered postcards are one of a kind miniatures. Each postcard dates from the early 1900s (circa 1902) and has that beautiful, old-world handwritten script. The birds are from an old Swiss field guide to birds, 1912. Each one has been hand-cut and added to the post card, then altered with charcoal and graphite for maximum pop. Each card measures 13cm x 7.5cm (5″ x 3″), and will come on a card that is from a 1920s French post card scrapbook. It is not fixed and can be removed and framed, if wished. Cost is £27 GBP with free worldwide shipping. To buy use the Buy It Now button UNDERNEATH the image that you want to purchase. If there any problems, please contact me by email.
