Free Collage Sheet: ATC Backgrounds of Antique, Victorian Wallpaper


Do you love creating ATC's? I do. A friend of mine got me into them, and she's a real artist. They're little works of art and lots of fun to decorate.
So, here's a real treat for you! I've created a collage sheet of ATC backgrounds using antique, Victorian wallpaper samples. Each of the 6 images prints at 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I hope you have lots of fun using these. I recently bought a HUGE antique wallpaper book, and I'm in the process of scanning the pages. Phew! But, it's great fun :-)
I also came across a wonderful blog, Shadowhouse Creations, and what a find! Have you discovered it yet? If not, go check it out. The blog's author, Jerry Jones, is a talented graphic artist, as well as very generous with his free textures. I love them! I used several of his textures in creating this collage sheet.

  6. C- Thank you for these, they are beautiful! Jerry also has several great tutorials which I found very helpful. I'm just curious: where did you find an antique wallpaper book? I grew up on the East coast and now live in Oregon where the antiques aren't as plentiful nor as antique as what I grew up seeing. But perhaps I just don't know where to look! Have a safe and happy Fourth! Nancy

  7. C- I'm going to ask a favor! If there are any wallpapers with daffodils, would you post them or let me know if I can buy them? Thanks, you inspire me! Nancy

  9. Hey, Nancy! Thanks for your comments! You're so sweet :-) Wow, that really makes me happy knowing that I'm inspiring you. I really appreciate that.

    I live in a very small town, and it's difficult for me to get to lots of antique shops or real good estate sales unless I'm prepared to drive miles and miles. Sometimes I am, but mostly I rely on internet auction sites for finding treasures. And, treasures like these are getting harder and harder to find. I was extremely lucky.

    There aren't any daffodils in this particular wallpaper book. Sorry. There's mostly roses and a few other, assorted flowers in the designs. Thanks for asking for daffodils! That gives me something to look for and post here. I really appreciate the idea :-)

    Thanks, Nancy! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a fun 4th!
