<<< Karen (Lunagirl): owner, maker, designer, in the snow :-)
Inspired by our own ephemera obsessions, my husband Michael and I founded Lunagirl Images in 2004 to offer high-quality images for home crafters, artists and collectors to use and enjoy. We currently publish more than 50 fine quality image CDs and over 500 original digital collage sheets. Over 30,000 images so far! Our unmatched variety in vintage imagery continues to grow.
We are proud to have been the first company to offer digital ephemera and vintage image collections of this size and quality at prices affordable to the home crafter. As far as I can tell, I invented the digital collage sheet! (simultaneously with "MsDelaise" Petra Wilkinson). I am especially pleased that Lunagirl has encouraged the growth and popularity of altered art and other mixed media art forms over the past decade.
Lunagirl offers professional production with handmade care and personal service. Many hours go into creating every Lunagirl item, and our work reflects our love of all things vintage. I am a lifelong student of history and former art therapist. I've been a digital designer for over 10 years. Both Michael and I have collected antique books, vintage postcards, and other ephemera for years and continue to seek out lovely, fascinating original images to digitize, restore, and alter. Every step, from scanning and restoration to alteration and embellishment to final production work, is completed in our little studio. Our work is personal, and so is our commitment to quality and service!
Lunagirl is your creative resource! Our images and digital collage sheets are an excellent resource for collage and mixed media, scrapbooks, handmade cards, paper piecing, digital art, digital scrapbooking, fabric arts, jewelry and other crafts, as well as collecting, education, artistic inspiration ... so many possibilities. Or just have fun browsing!Some images you've seen before, and a great many you haven't. And you've never seen them like this before -- curated, carefully organized, cleaned up, restored, even enhanced or embellished -- by the hundreds, by the thousands, at your fingertips in gorgeous, printable splendor.
Lunagirl images have been available in our online shop over ten years, and are now offered at Amazon.com and Target.com, on etsy, ebay, and bonanza, and in fine craft supply boutiques. Featured in altered art, craft, and card making magazines and blogs, enjoyed by thousands of happy customers, shipped to all fifty states and countries all around the world.
