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.
There is some really great stuff out there, you just gotta know where to search!
If you have a favorite site or place to get vintage images, please leave a comment and share!
