Holiday Collage by WillDBill Holiday Collage by WillDBill
A couple of eons ago (as the life of computers is measured), I gathered almost 800 old christmas cards, postcards and other vintage holiday resources and scanned them in to my hard drive. Ever since then, whenever a project called for a holiday image, I have been able to pull up something interesting, funny, or at least weird, from this vintage clipart collection. Now that I have been using Picasa to organize my hard drive for a while I decided to try creating a collage of all my old christmas images.

What an interesting and funny project it turned out to be!

This huge jpeg file (about 25MB) may be too much for dA (or your own bandwidth restrictions) to handle, but I just had to try sharing it with you all anyway. Hit the download link to enjoy it in its full high resolution glory.

For direct access to my resource gallery online (where the first 500 of these amazing images are stored), visit my public Picasa gallery here -=> [link]

What a great idea. This would make a unique gift wrap. I can't imagine the time it took you to scan all of these. Good job.

Oh my word.....incredible! This is wonderful! How long did it take you to scan in all the cards? Such a terrific and original idea! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who saves cards! :D :hug: :-)

It was a labor of love several years ago that got out of hand. :D Normally we just use last year's cards as lables on this year's presents and then throw them away. Once I owned my first scanner (circa 1992 vintage), I went nuts.
