Hand Color – Vintage Photographs with a Tint

Vintage and antique photographs with an added bit of color. Many people work with vintage / old photographs and simply add a color tint. This can be a fun and satisfying way to express yourself. Especially if you have a creative flare but lack the artistic ability to draw to your liking. It can actually bring back the nostalgia of youth and the carefree time spent coloring.

It is best to choose something that you can add just a few simple colors to and most times just one is more than enough. You can purchase paints and other items to make sure that your work is as professional as you like. You can use anything from oil based paint to colored markers to create your one of a kind treasures. It would be a good bet to read up on this unique artwork before you attempt to do it.

How to Date a Photograph

The title sounds like I am going to tell you how to say “do you want to go out with me?” In reality I would like to give you some pointers on how to determine the relative age of a photograph. You can not always tell by the condition of the photograph so get to know the style of dress and items in it such as old cars, household items even hairstyles. You will sometime come across a hairstyle that sticks out but remember there were always fashion rebels.

Halloween Stuff

I was shocked when I checked my email and one of my Halloween designs sold today. I am still thinking summer. I figured I would put together a bunch of designs that are Halloween inspired for you all to enjoy. Click on the image to see an enlargement or purchase from dozens of quality items with this or other Halloween designs on them.
Choose from the following products.

# T-Shirts # Embroidery # Pet Clothing – New!
# Custom Stamps # Skateboards # Custom Shoes
# Prints & Posters # Greeting Cards # Mugs
# Mouse pads # Buttons # Magnets
# Bumper Stickers # Postcards

One great thing to do is get cards and add matching postage stamps.

Some lucky kids will get to partake in these neat items. Matching shoes with bags and hoodies / shirts.

An ultimate combination of items that are both quality and something the kids will look at over and over again. I had a bad Trick or Treat night once and now I see what I needed to take it from yuck to a positive and fun event. I have 3 brothers and I am the youngest, the only girl, one year I was so happy to go as a ghost but little did I know that not having the correct foot wear could prove disastrous and it did. I tripped not once, not twice but a few times and every fall cost me both scrapped knees and lost treats :( That was the ultimate bummer. Because I insisted on carrying a plastic pumpkin to carry my stash I lost half of it. The other thing I recall about Halloween was it just getting dark and mom announcing that the coats would have to go on because it was tooo cold out. Well that just threw another wrench into the whole enchanted evening, So here is my contribution to our youth and my favorite holiday ……. Cool sneakers to ground the kids, a matching bag that is easy to carry,is really roomy for all that booty and here comes the best part. IT ZIPS CLOSE ……… And to keep mom happy there is a matching Hoodie to finish off the set. No more rotten Halloween nights with this collection at HALLOWEEN STUFF.
