HOW TO USE Vintage Images In Your Art Journal Pages

My artsy friend, Kristie Sloan, over at Artful Adventures, has some great ideas on her site for those who are new to art journaling.

Above is a photo from one of her posts that incorporates my vintage beach images.

Happy Canada Day, friends!  To celebrate the holiday, I am tripling your chances to win my monthly CD collection giveaway.  Here's how it works.

You can win ONE OF THREE collections of vintage images on CD that will be drawn.  These images come from my personal collection and are in simple JPG format so you can easily use them for so many different arts and crafts projects.  They are terrific for mixed media, collage, art journaling, assemblage, scrapbooking, card making and more.  Each CD has over 3,000 vintage images similar to the sample images you see below.  These are public domain images that you are free to use, even in things you wish to sell.  The only limitation is that you can't reproduce the images or the collection either digitally or in print to resell because the collection is copyrighted to me.  

How do you get your TRIPLE PLAY entry in the draw?  Here's what you do:

  1. To the right of this post on my blog, look for "Networked Blogs' and click on the "Follow This Blog" icon.  If you are already following this blog, just let me know to get yourself in the entry.
  2. Go to my Facebook art page: and "Like" the page.  Leave me a comment that you have done so and that will be your second chance to win. If you already follow my Facebook page, let me know and you'll be all set for the second chance to win a CD.
  3. Share this blog post or my Facebook page and let me know you've done so and you're in the draw for a third chance.
That's it.  The draw will be made on July 5 so check back on this blog then to see if you've won.  Thanks so much for entering and for all your support.

Much love always!
