More Free Clipart – Vintage Frames Borders & Ornaments

February 10, 2012
/ / /


I’ve got another batch of free vintage clipart – Borders Frames & Ornaments. I hope you like them!  They are commercial use  (CU4CU) with the exception of making brushes and custom shapes with them. You can make digital scrapbooking resources for sale or use them in a photography backgrounds project. Just *do* something with them like add a background or whatever.

I’m linking up to Little Birdie Blessings link party for the week (a day late). I happened to read on her link party that someone was looking for the hymn “Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee”. I used to sing that song as a kid in Catholic school. If my memory serves me right, it was a spring song sung around the time of the “Crowning of Mary” (in Catholic tradition). Well I had to look up who wrote that song. It’s by a man named Henry Van Dyke, and I found a beautiful vintage copyright free book with these decorative ornaments and borders containing his work!

You can read about him here:

Scripture Link Party #15 – God is Love

This isn’t a scripture, but it’s a quote from Henry Van Dyke. I thought it was really neat. I love that it has focus on residing in the heart instead of the ego or self serving thoughts. 

You must click on the download button to see the images and save them in full size resolution.

      Hi Su, Yes someone did ask for Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee, I hope to get that posted this weekend if I can find it in my old hymnals. This artwork you found in your book is incredible and beautiful. Thank you for the free downloads. I've added it to my growing Starsunflower Studio graphics folder. I may use one or some of the graphics to add the music to. Thanks for linking this up and for the link on your blog. You are appreciated. ~ Abby

      I like your patterns but I was having trouble downloading them. The backgrounds were black and I couldn't see the design. I couldn't figure it out. Thanks.

      Try viewing them in a different browser. Firefox recently changed the way PNG view when you display an image without a background. It now has a grey/black background color. You could try Google Chrome, or Opera or IE if you can't see them.

      Very nice collection, I came across your site while I was looking for something borders/frames to add to the pitcures and pages of a family book. I have used some of them and they look great. I also found some nice and free vintage frames here:

      Browsing your site and saw this. Love the designs and also the quote. I had seen it somewhere else and have it as my board cover for my Typography pin board. It's an awesome quote, I've thought a ton about it. I thought it was fascinating that he seems to be saying that people who are seeking to get to heaven are self serving, like you said. While those who are consumed with caring and loving are doing something entirely different. I love that you posted it and commented on it!

      Thank you!!! For all I have seen – your stuff is amazingly beautiful. I wonder a lot over graphics on the internet and am very picky, but yours is exactly what I was looking for many times and couldn't define it before.
      Feels like a home…
