Another one that could serve as gift tag – all Winter long 🙂
If you like this one, check out the digital collage sheet in my Etsy shop – it has 7 more in this style.

If you use it, I’d be REALLY happy if you could share your finished card or project 🙂


May I present the most current free download:
A gift tag for the holidays.
Let me know if you like it 🙂

Peaceful Holidays!

If you do, then you might like the downloadable sheet that’s available in my Etsy store. Yes! – I opened an Etsy store for digital downloads (and hopefully some of my other art work in the future) 🙂

Wishing you all Peaceful Holidays!


I decided it’s time to give back to all who visit 🙂

I found that many of my visitors like to use vintage pictures and ephemera for their artwork. Also I was asked quite a few times if one could use some of my digital backgrounds.

I love to play with Photoshop (and since a few days also with procreate for the  iPad :)) and I do love vintage images, maps, illustrations – you name it. For years I am ‘collecting ‘ them (via Internet as well as in the ‘real’ world – old books are heaven for me!!!).

Well, it’s to sad to have them all hidden in my file folders – so here they’ll show up (slowly but surely) in form of inchies, twinchies, ATC backgrounds… or whatever I’ll come up with and have time for. I know there are other places online already that provide something like this, but I’ll do it anyway. It will be based on my personal preferences and requests I’ll hear from visitors 🙂

So feel free to browse and ask if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Use the goodies here for your personal project – print them and go wild! If you do use them and show the final product online, please be kind enough to link back to the source. This is much appreciated.

Because you asked… 🙂
Happy Fall! I hope they print well – still no working printer for me 😦

I used a royalty free image I found online
(and forgot to note the source!!! if you know the origin, please let me know) and added the writing digitally.
Let me know how this one prints… my printer is on strike 😦
therefore I couldn’t test this one (the resolution is low, I hope it still works 🙂

To download just right click on the image and save.

I saw my first butterfly for this year!!! I was really excited. I think I have never had to wait that long – it’s almost May! Well, I haven’t lived that far north yet either, so I think this justifies…
It was a yellow butterfly – I didn’t see it close enough to find out what kind it was. But to remember this occasion and to finally share another little free inchie, I made this little free printable for all who like butterflies and fresh SPring green. Enjoy!

Vintage butterfly illustration (royalty free) on my own acrylic background;
the faint writing in the background is on of my digital brushes;
words written on the background are my own handwriting:

“Think thoughts that make you happy”

I made several cards for mail art pieces using this sentence in the background.

Thank you!
