Paper Crafts – Vintage Pieces for Collage/Altered Art – Sleeping Beauty
Hi there and welcome, I am so happy you stopped by and hope you enjoy today’s art.
Long ago mom would read to us – bible stories – children’s classics – whatever she thought would be of interest. She said grandmother read to the twelve of them and Grandmother’s grandmother would tell them fairy tales from the old country. I know my daughter and daughters-in law read to our grands.
Have you ever wondered how many little minds have known the wonder of fairy tales? How many times have the words been said, “Long ago and far away” or “and they lived happily ever after”?
My favorite story is “Sleeping Beauty” I read that it had been around since 1330. So, when I saw these fairy tale postcards at tuckdb.org I saved them. I knew sooner or later they would be used here.
God has given each of us a wonderful imagination, so print these art pieces painted years and years ago, then use YOUR imagination … create something beautiful. Most of all, have fun!

And, remember what was written of the Lord –
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. Isaiah 25:4
