Sneaky preview and more antique French freebies

Autumn chills and rains have me spending more time indoors.
Which means more happy hours at my desk.

Surrounded by (and covered in) glue and threads,
torn paper pieces and fabric leftovers
I decided it was time again for some presents
from me to you.

Next week (if all goes well) I will share with you a "making of" or a how to or tutorial if you like, of a mixed media canvas wall hanging with fabrics. Above you see two sneaky previews.

Although I do love the sunny days of summer,
I must say I prefer autumn above all.
The decay of flowers and leaves,
the chilly and fresh air.



But here are two presents you don't have to wait for. The back of one of the antique French postcards that I purchased some months ago. The original and a graphic version of it.

Free for you to use in your own arts and crafts.


Wishing you a peaceful day.
