Joyeux Noel: New Digital Collage Sheets

Here is the last post of new digital collage sheets with vintage European Christmas cards. These are more French holiday postcards... Beautiful angels, some nativity scenes, Christmas children, and of course Santa Claus! The last sheet here is created with antique photo postcards ~ a little girl and a little angel with their vintage Christmas trees, playful children to wish you joyful NOEL, and even a romantic couple in Victorian / Edwardian dress.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them! And I hope you'll go see these and all of my Christmas / Winter / and New Year images and digital collage sheets at Lunagirl.com.

Continuing to share the new digital collage sheets I've created using vintage Christmas cards I've collected. Most of what I have are French and German, but here are some from other countries. Dutch Santa Claus on a snowy night, Czech holiday cards featuring sweet angels and children, Scandinavian Christmas cards with greetings in Danish and Swedish, and serene vintage Christmas greetings in Italian (with mostly religious themes).   Available for download at Lunagirl.com.

Weihnacten: New Collage Sheets German Christmas

Just before Thanksgiving, I received a request for a digital collage sheet of Christmas cards from different countries. Looking through all my vintage holiday collections, I found I had many more vintage European Christmas cards than I remembered.

I ended up creating 15 new collage sheets, with greetings in French, German, Dutch, Czech, Italian, Danish and Swedish, featuring vintage Saint Nicholas, angels, children, and more. Lots of Santa Claus cards!

I'm going to share all of these over the next few days... Here to start are four collage sheets created with lovely vintage German Christmas cards: Weihnachten is the celebration of Christmas Eve in German-speaking countries. You'll find all at Lunagirl.com!

Artist Trading Coins

You've heard of Artist Trading Cards, and inchies and twinchies and moos and more. Well, now have you heard of Artist Trading COINS? These are fun, shareable, little altered art / mixed media creations on 2.5-inch circles.

The round/circular shape is a subtle shift in how you think about design. And something new is always a nice inspiration.

I've finally got around to creating a few new digital collage sheets with 2.5" circles. These are perfect for Artist Trading Coins, as well as pocket mirrors, coasters, etc. And of course you can also use them in any kind of project ~ fun for altered books and boxes, scrapbooking, etc. 

See 'em all at Lunagirl.com! More to come (and I'm glad to take requests!)
