Free Vintage Clip Art - Pen and Ink 101
My parents had a house fire many years back, while I was away in the U.S. Navy, and among many losses was the garage-stored artwork of my school years. A very few of these items have been discovered since, in a stray box or folder that wasn't located at the site of the fire. This naive pen and ink line drawing of some unknown flower/herb, by yours truly circa 1974, might be of some use as clip art for mixed media. It is unedited. This is #3 of 3 in this series. Be sure to left click to get the full size.
Using blue, brown, and green antique end papers from The Graphics Fairy, I got my Photoshop on and ghosted my pen and ink drawings over them. I printed them up and made some country cottage tags, shown at top of post and below. Click my Flickr link for high resolution downloads of the pen and ink tags below for your personal use.
The frilly, blue background is my favorite, and it made for a nice ocean theme background in these fun digital collage tags:
I hope you enjoyed today's post, and I'd love to hear what you think, and what you'd like to see more of.
