Free Accessories for Book Artists #4

More Free Images for Book Artists!

This time, the Studio's blog will be offering guests one more opportunity to use some of the previously found items for artwork, crafting, and so on. A number of the things you'll be seeing in months to come had been in the Studio's archives for years. 

Below, you'll see the first in a series of lace items, along with a new fan, some different buttons, and two examples of ways to use this little set. 

The set is available in both Digi PNG format and in for print JPG format. Please read our red letters below the following images for our guidelines as to free and fair use.

I'm mixing eras in our (2) examples this time, so that you'll see just how much fun such a mixing technique this can be. Eighteenth, nineteenth and even twentieth century things will be shown. I suppose we can liken it to mixed media artwork, in a way, can't we?

Some of the buttons are from an old nineteenth century French map, one that I've used before in other work. I think that they turned out fairly well, all things considered. The other style of button, an eighteenth century one, needed just a bit of touch-up prior to being used, as it was looking a bit untidy and even rumpled. Once its looks had been restored, it seemed to make a nice contrasting color look to the cravat lace "pocket," which I've also cleaned up and altered for you.

As for the fan, can I just say that it was a case for me of love at first sight? This required several different types of cleaning and refurbishing, initially. I'm so glad that it was available for use today.

Once again, please read our red guidelines below. Thank you so much for stopping by with your
Happy Creativity!

Good morning, Zsuzsa!
Thank you so much for stopping by. It is always good to find one of your nice comments at either of my 2 blogs. Hope that all is well with you today.
I happen to like the look of this fan very much, too. But then, I like using eccentric ideas in journals and art books.
There are more fans in the Studio's collection. I don't think that I have a favorite yet, but I really like the colors of this particular one.
New accessories have to be worked at, of course. There will be another set before too long!
