Antique Graphics Wednesday - Silhouettes

Today's images are silhouettes from a 1935
children's song book called,
"Fifty Favorite Songs for Girls & Boys".
I've given most of them a black/gray tone,
but left the complete song pages in
their original color tone so you can see 
their pretty aged look.

I think these would be perfect
to create some handmade greeting cards with.

Here's a very famous lullaby.
These pages are very fragile and unfortunately,
this one has a tear at the bottom.
I love the birds on the branches part of the image.
It was getting slightly faded, so I cleaned it up a little.
And the well-known, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"

More pretty birds on this Spring song.
And here's a small portion of the graphic.
Love this rooster!
I'm not familiar with this song, but the image
is adorable and so are the words.
Portions of the image.


Another very well-known song.
 Here I removed the little girl and the clock.
Here it is again with a different color tone.
And here's just the grandfather clock.
And here it is with a white background.

Well, I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do,
and will create something fabulous with them!


Blessings,
Angie

  7. I adore these images! My favorite is the little girl looking at the bird in the window. I never tire of seeing children light up with awe and wonder at this wonderful world. Thank you for sharing the wonder of childhood at Show & Tell.
