Photo Collage from the 1800's

Yes, again, the art started long ago.
The Victorians had more time on their hands, and were some of the first to play with scrapbooking and collage, using old photos.
 I wonder what they would have done with Photoshop???

There are many  albums from the 1800's on line at museums. The research I did was mostly at The Art Institute of Chicago.

So many more pages from the 1800's to enjoy.
Not copyright free, but very inspirational.
Have a nice weekend!

Cutie Pie and Puppy Breath

I came across this sweet image in my collection, it had been cut out and put in a victorian scrapbook I purchased long ago. The paper is so old in the scrapbook, it falls apart when you touch it. They used flour and water paste back then. Imagine that! Now, there is a zillion glues on the market.
I have seen it before,,out there,,somewhere,,maby Dover,,,hummm. Anyhow, I scanned it on some "new" K&Co. paper for you to use . The white spots are just from age, and I don't know how to get rid of them, maby you do. So many of the old paper art is reproduced now, and I don't have the time or inclination to do the research, so use at your own risk anything that you see on my blog. I will share more of the scraps.
I think I will escape to the craft room today, husband said something about football and a three stooges marathon....he needs an escape too I guess. I smile at the little boy in my 61yr. old man.
 A good relaxing way to start the New Year.
Enjoy your day.
