How I Used Some of the Photos Listed in My Etsy Shop

Happy Friday! I hope that you are doing well.

I have listed a few more images (shown below) as digital downloads in my Etsy shop, but I thought I would also show you a few photos of how I had used the same photos in the past. Perhaps a little fuel for your imagination (not that any of you need MY help!).

These two beautiful babies in their prams
are some of my favorites...

If you've followed this blog for awhile, you may remember 
that I had an article about a book that I created
published in the Winter, 2015
issue of Sew Somerset magazine
entitled "Babies, Buggies and Black Velvet"
(If you want to read my post about that,
you can find it here.)

Here is how I used these photos
 in two of the pages of that book...

In the following images,
I love the chubby little baby on the horse,
and the dresses that the moms are both wearing.
I think that these are some of my most beautiful
old photos...

 And here is how I used them...

I have not used the two below in any 
artwork yet, 
but I couldn't resist the expression on
the flapper's face,
or the two ladies sitting on the moon...

I hope that you will find these photos inspiring.
Thanks for coming by!
