This one was originally made with watercolour paper, rubber stamps and inks.

This cool woodcut of a bagpiper and his dog is from a magazine published in 1898

From a vintage Sears catalogue

This is just a vintage book page with a rubber stamp. This technique looks great in a frame all on its own. I always look for vintage novels with thicker soft pages as they hold the ink nicely,

Free Graphics - The Wizard of Oz

Eighty years ago this week, the classic film The Wizard of Oz was released in theatres. 

This movie ( and the original book series) have always been a favourite and I have collected Oz memorabilia since I was a kid.  

I asked my daughter to draw me a set of sketches for the Oz Anniversary and this is what she has done so far. Isn't she amazing!! I can't wait to see the rest.



This is a graphic my daughter drew for me to use as a cover photo

I came across a damaged copy of The Wizard of Oz at a yard sale and used it in a bunch of scrapping projects including this notecard. 
The Yellow Brick Road background is scrapbooking paper.  I carefully removed the first paragraph by tearing it slowly. (I like the abstract look of torn paper edges and use it often in my projects.)  I lightly brushed the paragraph with emerald green artist chalk. You can also use eyeshadow in place of chalk.  Dorothy and Toto were cut out separately and glued on.

These are from assorted newspapers that I have scanned/saved to do something with one day. I thought of making a collage or large wall piece using news clippings as the background.

Vintage Doll Ads

 Did you own any of these? I had the Sunshine Family Craft Store when I was a kid. My Mom made me tiny dipped candles and fabric bolts for the store ( probably my earliest introduction to making minis)

Marigold photos

I have pretty much skipped the garden centre this year and have been attempting to grow everything from seed. 
So far the only things growing are herbs and Marigolds.  The bunnies have pretty much eaten all the veggie leaves that have sprouted and the squirrels literally dug up and took off with the peanut plant. I don't mind. I enjoy seeing the little critters and don't mind if they help themselves to a snack.

So until something else pops up in the garden I will be snapping Marigold pictures.
