Where to find Antique and Vintage Images


I get asked a lot where I find antique and vintage images to use in my art. I can tell you it's not easy, but that's only because I like to use the real thing. I love old photos printed on old photo paper, they just have a certain flair to them that can really add a lot to your project. But, depending on the type of project you are doing, you may find that using images from a CD or downloaded from the internet work just fine. Just whip out your distress inks, and they'll look authentic in no time! I have found a couple really great sites that will give you images to use for FREE! (I LOVE free!)
Here's one of the sites I have been to in the past: http://freeantiqueimages.blogspot.com/

I also hunt around alot on flickr for FREE images that people are willing to share.
