Vintage Album Bird Images

How do you keep your creative juices flowing?Cathe-Holden-Bird-Album-pages

Sometimes when I’m longing for new ideas I search for old inspiration, and visit my local antiques stores. Yesterday’s trip proved quite successful as I happened upon four separate pages taken from a vintage photo album. Each page rich in colorful, detailed bird illustrations.Bird-Album-Page-CUI scanned the pages and used Photoshop to touch up stains and blemishes, and fill the inner photo areas. You can help yourself to each image below by clicking to enlarge and save. Use for collage, scrapbooking, cardmaking, digital work, even your own album pages. (But, please don’t sell or share as digital images alone.)  Cathe-Holden-Bird-Album-04 Cathe-Holden-Bird-Album-03 Cathe-Holden-Bird-Album-02 Cathe-Holden-Bird-Album-01I reduced one page, added text,  printed out and attached tiny plastic eggs to the nest, then placed into an old pen nib container to create a sweet little shadow box.Cathe-Holden-Bird-Box

    Hello, I have just discovered your site thanks to Gunnvor at Wings of Whimsy. I have subscribed via a pop up (hope that is you!). Looking forward to looking around your site, just wanted to say thank you for the box printables and the many other freebies I can see you offer. May I direct others from my blog here, hoping they will read the posts as well as have some briliant freebies x

    I love your freebies. Thank you so much for sharing. I was wondering if we are allowed to use them for making wallpapers or FB Timeline Covers?
