Illustrations From the Past

I collect vintage illustrations of all types and as so many of my blog friends use imagery in their art I thought I would share some of the illustrations of women I have collected. I can't wait to see how you use them in your next project. ENJOY!
















Marie Antoinette






Queen Elizabeth
