Clip Art


The world of clip art has endless possibilities for creativity. Invitations, greeting cards, wall art, transfers, it’s limitless. Some of the best works come from the 1800’s public domain. I have been collecting some damaged pieces, actually I am like a chipmunk collecting a feast for winter. Anyone who lives in a snowbelt area can understand why :)It’s always incredibly rewarding to make something old and unusable into something new again.

I hope to be changing up my shop to include some of these pieces. I am adding commercial clipart so that others can use these in their own art. If you are a crafter or artist looking for unique clipart please feel free to message me. Or need a blog logo, I’d love to help you create something you are looking for.

Be on the look out for freebies here. Please feel free to click on the image above and save it to your device. Looks great on recipe cards, or as a special botanical piece

Much love,

White Lily PDF 8 x 10

Yesterday I was on the hunt for any hint of a flowering anything. Even though nothing was blooming, I saw buds on the lilac, soft trees, and green leaves popping in the gardens. Finally the iris and lily leaves are poking through the ground. I’m hoping my roses and sweet peas made it through the cold of the winter. For now, I will marvel all of the beautiful flowers and trees I see on WP and Instagram. I may have a bit of plant envy going on 🙂

Capturing a few pictures on my walk yesterday, you can see there is much cleanup to get to, hopefully I can make a small dent in it today. The driftwood seems to be surfacing again, which makes me happy. I have a project I am working on and hope to share it with all of you soon.

In the mean time, enjoy the 8 x 10 Botanical Graphic. It can be used as art, card making, transfer image, decoupage craft, etc.

Hortensia opuloïdes tea 8 x 10 frame

I love botanicals! My favorites have an aged paper appearance or printed on aged/stained paper. This weekend we had the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular colors that lit the foliage for the season finale. In my next post, I will share a few of the pictures I captured on a quick trip to Houghton Lake, MI. Many of the trees and botanicals are now at full color and just holding on by a thread. 

This printable captures that hue of color that the season blesses us with. The botanical print has a tea-stain paper overlay that gives it a nice vintage flair. Attached is a PDF of the print above.

It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end. Fall is my favorite time of the year. The crisp air, cozy blankets, sweater and boot season, and the decorating 🙂 Where I live, we are beginning to see the sparks of color in the trees. The magnificent reds, yellows, and oranges are just waiting to explode. 

I will be posting free printables soon! In the meantime, here are a few inspiring pictures for fall.
