Vintage Bellydancers & Edwardian Divas with Far-Away Eyes: New Printable Tags to Download

I had the best time starting my new collection Bellydance & Diva tag/bookmark sheets, three of which are sampled above.  Looking through all the images for just the right ones to go together, carefully tinting the photos in soft blues and pinks and jewel tones, selecting antique wallpaper scrap patterns to make the frames and backs and then coloring them to complement the photos, adding some lovely cartes postales and effects for the tags...

The sample here are three of the several bellydancer/diva printables I created, all currently available at Lunagirl.com and also in my etsy shop.  I feel sure there will be more tag and bookmark sets after I return from vacation... and remember you can shop while I'm away!  Digital collage sheets and other downloads will continue to be delivered automatically, and I'll be checking email when I can in case anyone has questions or difficulties.  You can order CDs also, and I'll ship those as soon as shipping resumes at the end of June.

These vintage bellydancer photos are truly some of my favorite, partly because I love bellydance and also because the images are just so exotic and beautiful.  The four "diva" photos I choose for the sheet above have in common a certain daydreaming look, so I named the sheet "Far Away Eyes." And of course I ended up using some of my favorite colors:  turquoise aquamarine blue, deep magenta with a gothic pattern, and lovely antique rose pink.  Click to see more and you'll notice some purple :-)   Now I just need to do some in emerald green....

New Digital Download: Vintage Photos of Sisters, Victorian Girls & Friends

The "All For the Girls" challenge at DigitallySweetChallenges inspired me to create TWO new digital collage sheets using vintage photos, available at Lunagirl.com.

Called "Just Us Girls" (shown here) and Just Us Girls #2, these feature altered postcards and photographs of Victorian Edwardian women and children who are sisters, friends, companions.  Little girls in party dresses, friends old and young, even some fabulous ladies in Halloween costumes (my favorite).

Sweet and fun, and perfect for the DSC challenge!  They would also be perfect vintage printables for birthday cards, greeting cards, altered art projects, scrapbooking layouts, etc.

Hope you enjoy!  Stay tuned for my new bellydancer/diva tag sheets....

New: Printable Victorian Bookmarks

http://lunagirl.com/collections/new-releases/products/victorian-tags-small-bookmarks-digital-collage-sheet
Here is yet another new digital collage sheet printable.  As much as I love books and reading, it's a wonder it took me this long to start creating bookmarks.  Many more will be on the way -- along with many tags...

This first set is a collection of smaller (four inches tall) bookmarks I created with vintage images of ladies, flowers, birds, fairies, and scraps of vintage ads and Victorian wallpaper!  Kind of a garden theme, with flower fairy girls, Art Nouveau vines, daisies, bluebird, lilacs, and more.  I hope you will enjoy them.

And although I don't know how much I'll get done before going on hiatus next week, there will be more tags and bookmarks and other pretty vintage printables!
