Potted Plants

Thank everyone for all the comments.  It is good to know you are out there and the images are so appreciated.
Today I have two images from a March 1898 Ladies Home Journal.  Both of these images are from the plant and seed section at the back of the magazine.  Happy Easter to all of you that celebrate it!


  1. I love your images. They are amazing. I haven't gotten into using digi images, but I have been collecting your images. I am not sure what coloring medium can be used for digi's. Can you recommend a tutorial or sight where I can learn how to use them? My favorite medium is Copic markers.
    Please keep the images coming. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates them. Blessings.

    1. Jackie, you can certainly use your Copics to color in digital images - just make sure that the solvent in the markers doesn't make the solvent in the toner bleed before you start. Sometimes you can also use a heat gun and heat set the image before coloring to prevent it, or let the image sit overnight before coloring. I color digital images in with Copics or with colored pencil most of the time.

  2. Beautiful images! thank you so much for sharing them.

  3. Thanks Cora, these are fabulous.
