Antique Graphics Wednesday – Silhouettes

Today’s images are silhouettes from a 1935
children’s song book called,

“Fifty Favorite Songs for Girls & Boys”.

I’ve given most of them a black/gray tone,
but left the complete song pages in
their original color tone so you can see
their pretty aged look.
I think these would be perfect
to create some handmade greeting cards with.

Here’s a very famous lullaby.
These pages are very fragile and unfortunately,
this one has a tear at the bottom.

I love the birds on the branches part of the image.
It was getting slightly faded, so I cleaned it up a little.

And the well-known, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”

More pretty birds on this Spring song music page. {click to enlarge}

And here’s a small portion of the graphic.

Love this rooster!

I’m not familiar with this song, but the image
is adorable and so are the words.

Portions of the image.
Another very well-known song.

Here I removed the little girl and the clock.

Here it is again with a different color tone.
And here’s just the grandfather clock.
And here it is with a white background.
Well, I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do,
and will create something fabulous with them!

  13. I want to thank you for the lovely graphics and to thank you for providing such a great service for us. Today as I was looking at the printables, I noticed a hymn titled “The LORD Will Provide”. I have never seen this hymn before but it truly spoke to my heart, as did your comments preceding it! I am going to send a copy to my three daughters, as we are all going through some trying times. I know that this hymn will bless them as it has blessed me!! Thanks so very much!
