Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1898 Birds with Nest

This adorable “nesting” image came from an 1898
children’s school primer.
I can see so many lovely ways to use this image –
on cards, scrapbook projects, layered over text or music images, etc.
Hope you enjoy it!  If you make something with it,
I’d love to hear about it!

It is a PNG image, (meaning all background has been
removed, as you see it here)
so you can use programs like
Photoshop, Gimp, and even Picmonkey to
layer it over other images.

If using Picmonkey, save this image to
your computer first, then
select “edit a photo”, then select the background image first,
(sheet music and handwriting text look wonderful)
then click on the graphic on the left side of the page,
the shows a heart, star shape and quote bubble.
You’ll see “add your own” at the top, click on that.
Now you can select this image and move it
wherever you want it over your background image.
Save your finished image to your computer
to print, etc.

    Sorry for the bother, but I am dying to make my own sign and do not know how to do it.
