Antique Botanical Illustration for Crafts, Scrapbooking or Graphic Design: Flowering Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia suaveolens)


May I a small house and large garden have;
And a few friends,
And many books, both true.
Abraham Cowley

A botanical illustration from Henderson's Handbook of Plants that shows a small flowering tree growing in a landscaped, walled garden. The "tree" is actually a standard shrub of Brugmansia suaveolens, also commonly known as angel trumpet or angel's tears. The remarkably beautiful flowers (usually white but can be yellow or pink) are sweetly fragrant in the evenings so they can attract pollinating moths but hang half-closed during the day. A lovely graphic to use in crafts or to embellish greeting cards and scrapbook pages.

Antique Garden Graphic for Crafts, Junk Journal or Graphic Design: Aviary in a Victorian Garden


Larks in the morning, crickets at night. There is no other world.
Marty Rubin

A black and white illustration of an aviary in a Victorian garden, surrounded by climbing roses and wild convolvulus. This particularly ornamental aviary was manufactured by Mr. E. Crook of 5, Carnaby-street, Regent-street, London, and was quite popular with many ladies of that era. You can download a 6” x 5.5” @ 300 ppi JPEG (without a watermark) here.


I've shown a sample of how I used it to create a patterned paper that you can use as a background in collage or decoupage projects but the image is versatile enough to incorporate in other crafts or design work. If you like, you can download the high-res 12" x 12" @ 300 ppi digital paper here.

Vintage Illustrated Template for Junk Journal, Creative Collage or Graphic Design: Rain Pictures with Young Victorian Lady under a Tree


The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected;
I have always considered the rain to be healing—a blanket—the comfort of a friend.
Without at least some rain in any given day,
or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight
and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.
Douglas Coupland, Life After God

A pre-made template featuring an antique illustration of a young Victorian lady waiting with her umbrella under a tree for the rain to pass. You can use this as a background for your junk journal, creative collage and graphic design projects with a nature or outdoor theme.

You can download the high-resolution 11" x 8.5" @ 300 ppi JPEG without a watermark here.
