Free Book: Free Online Clipart Sourcebook
Announcing the Free Clip Art Sourcebook: links to thousands of categorized free images, all in one place! When I was a magazine art director about 100 years ago, we didn’t have electronic free clip art. That might seem incomprehensible to younger people, but we had to jump through all kinds of hoops just to get images onto the pages of a magazine. It involved X-Acto knives and sticky wax, which always seemed to be stuck to parts of me, instead of just to the back of the clip art. I used to design a lot of small ads every month, many of which required some kind of artwork to make them stand out. That was when my love affair with clip art began. But now I’ve developed a new problem: I have a lot of free contemporary and vintage clip art and scrapbook images. The Free Clip Art Sourcebook doesn’t just link to free clip art and scrapbook images; it’s free to download too. You need the free Adobe Reader to view the Free Clip Art Sourcebook.

How to Paint a Couch and DIY Chalk Paint If you would have asked me a year ago if painting a couch would be in my near future I probably would have responded, Please? (Which is a polite/strange way people from Cincinnati ask others to repeat themselves, aka What?) Having ruined lots of clothes with paint splatters I knew paint and fabric was not a good combination. In 2012 I came across a great blog where I learned that upholstery can be painted by mixing paint medium and latex paint. So, when making over my family room ottoman I used fabric on the top and paint on the bottom!
