Vintage Ephemera Freebie

Speaking of public domain, I was recently introduced to Ackermann's Repository which was a British periodical published from 1809 to 1829. It contains beautiful illustrations some of which I hope to present to you in the near future.

In the meantime, this is a portion of text extracted from one of the volumes. I have cropped it, distressed the edges to give it an aged look, added text and changed the color. I'll be using this in a couple of projects later this week but feel free to grab a copy of it now.

The unaltered text as it originally appeared in the Ackermann's Repository appears above. This is yours to alter and do with as you please. Idea: text is great to cut your corset templates from or for adding layering effects in collage projects. Enjoy!


  1. I love how you have aged it! Thank you for the copy!

    1. Thanks Lucile. I really like it too. Hope you'll be able to put it to good use. I would love to see what you do with it. :)




Each and every comment adds a bit of cheer to my day. Thank you so much for popping over. I hope to see you again soon.
