Finally got around to opening up my store on Etsy. Check it out at www.etsy.com/shop/kensingtoncreative
First craft show went well. Here are some photos from the event.
Here are some more photos of the Vintage Bible Prints that will soon be available on Amazon. (Available with Prime Shipping!) Here is a link to one of the products that is currently unavailable but should be live soon - Vintage Camera www.amazon.com/dp/B076DBTCP6
A lot of the prints are nautical themed but more designs will be added in the future. The prints sold on Amazon will be unframed but will fit in a 9" x 12" frame. I get the frames shown in the photos at Michael's Arts and Crafts store. The frames retail for $26.99 but they have coupons available every week and you can buy them for 40% - 50% off.
Contact me for more info.
Great news! I was accepted into Amazon Handmade. I applied over 2 weeks ago and just found out yesterday that they accepted me. I am in the process of setting up the Amazon Handmade store which could take a week. I'll let you know when my vintage prints are available for sale. I am planning on sending the prints to Amazon so that they will be available for Prime shipping.
I love vintage illustrations. I think the designs that were done in the 1800's and early 1900's are just so unique and beautiful and done with out the aid of computers. I use to collect old books and an old Bible I had aquired from 1883 was falling apart. I decided to create some unique art from them. I researched unique and out of copyright prints that work well with the vintage look. I then clean up the images in Photoshop, erased the backgrounds and turned the image dark black to optimize the printed look.
I then trim each page to 9x12 inches so that it will fit any standard 9x12 frame. The pages are 134 years old which makes them very delicate and very difficult to trim. Each page has original red border that gives it a unique look and adds to the beauty of the print. I then print the images on the pages using my Epson Artisan1430 printer.
The prints look amazing framed and displayed in any room of your home. They also make great one of a kind gift. I will probably try to sell these at crafts fairs this winter or maybe I will add them for sale online.
Below is the Bible - not in the best condition.
I love finding old vintage illustration and giving them a new purpose. I have a large inventory of vintage illustrations if you would like to add this look to a poster or postcard for your business or event. Just contact me.
I recently designed these tickets to the annual New Hampshire Academy of Preforming Arts Gala this past March. It was a really fun project to work on since my daughter dances there. Tickets are full color both sides and the final printed version were numbered 1 -500 for easier tracking. If you need tickets to your event please contact me.
Recently finished these beautiful business cards for Vicki of Vicki Pfeifer Photography. She wanted a business card that was larger than the usual 2" x 3.5" so we made hers 3" x 4". It's ok to think out of the box. We were able to get more of her photos on the card. Don't forget to take advantage of using both sides of your business card to maximize your impact.
Here are some earring cards I helped design and print for lovely Anna. Anna created the drawing and I was able to help her with her vision.
Recently made this great product cards for a great kid. Good luck with your business Robert!
Just finished working on a t-shirt design for KYAA, our town's all volunteer athletic association. They are holding a fast pitch softball tournament this month. I was only allowed two colors in the design to save on production costs. I decided to go with the colors used in the actual softballs.
