I started working on this post before Christmas...but I had so much Christmas to show you that I put this one on the back burner.
For me, botanical prints are high on the list for creating a traditional, and even new traditional style. Sometimes I worry that I hang on to a style too long...but then if I still like it, I should be ok with that. I guess that's why traditional style and I go together so well. Anyway, I started surfing around the internet to see if botanical prints are still in style.
I have been a lover of botanical prints for years! I had botanical prints all over our previous house...and have several of them in our new house.
I even have an old calendar with watercolor botanicals that I have been meaning to frame...for too many years. ha!
I was poking around online for blog graphics and happened upon a website with free use images....and I went straight for the, you guessed it, botanicals.
These are vintage images that I think would be great in a frame, or on a tray, or whatever creative project you dream.
I can see using this pear print and mod podge on decorative plates, trays, etc.
I am thinking about using the red botanicals for Christmas printing projects ...for gift tags, newsletter headings, gift enclosure cards, etc.
Right click to save the image to your computer and then you can import it to any project. Just alter the size of the image for your particular project.
This is the disclosure with each image:
Images in the public domain believed be free to use without restriction in the U.S.
If you use an image please give the source as Vintage Printable...since that is where I found these great images.
Vintage Printable also has many, many other groups of vintage images if you are not interested in flowers and botanicals. I have no connection to the website, I just found it, and wanted to share in case some of you are interested.
I am doing a little happy dance about finding these images!
If you go online you can find lots of ideas of how to decorate with botanicals. Be they large or small, they look wonderful, in my humble opinion. ha!
I love how Chic on A Shoestring Blog used these botanical prints together to create outstanding wall display.
Happy crafting, or decorating!
Thanks for visiting.
