2014 April New Prints no labelsThese are six new digital designs using vintage postcards, postage and card art I put together using my collection of vintage images. I love to dig through Antique stores and Thrift shops looking for vintage postage, old letters, post cards and writing samples. I then scan the images into my computer and using Photoshop combine them into Digitally collaged designs.

Printed on 100% cotton, I’ve used them in the Neat and Nifty Notebooks.  The prints are available as a set of one large and two small to fit regular and mini composition books and come with a pattern to make the Neat and Nifty Composition Books for $9.50.Composition Book Covers W01 To read more about the Composition books go here.

Fabric Prints are now or soon will be available in my Etsy shop Shelley’s Design Works.

The prints could also be used in Crazy quilting. I love combining digital art with fabric.
Contact me if you are interested in more information about purchasing the books or the prints and pattern.
