We call these vintage finds, but in fact they're much older. Whatever their age, I love getting them for my artwork. This little haul came from a dear friend. The muslin and lace got a good soaking/washing, and now they're ready to be used.


 I like old patterns

 ...for their paper


To use in collage or as wrapping paper, or building a substrate with many layers, like this
 
 Or to build shapes, flying creatures, wings....


 Have a lovely day, and thanks for stopping by.
