Antique Garden Graphic for Crafts, Scrapooking or Card Making: 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. The drawing originally appeared in the June 23, 1893 issue of The Girl's Own Paper. You can download a 5.5” x 6” @ 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 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.
