Amazing Downloadable Art

There's a very talented lady called Kimberly at allons-y kimberly who makes some amazing art that she allows you to download FOR FREEEEEE (Anyone seen Bedtime Stories? If not, never mind!) 
Some of her stuff is time limited though so check back regularly, you wouldn't want to miss out.

I saw these the other day and knew I had to print them without delay. My daughter has just gone off to Uni and I thought they would be perfect for her room. We have already established what Harry Potter Nuts we are see scarf pattern here

First I downloaded Kimberly's awesome art, then printed them on good quality paper (120gsm - they are worth it)

To print them smaller than the download size I selected "Multiple" Print and "4 pages per sheet" on my printer options. They came out 10cm x 12.5cm.
I imagine most printers will have some sort of scaling option on them somewhere.

I cut them out, then took some old divider cardboard (waste not want not) and cut it just a little bigger to mount them on.

I used just a little bit of glue to hold them in place then ran them through the laminator, in medium thickness laminating pouches. 
I love them so much I may have to print a set for myself.
I posted them off to my daughter who promptly sent me a picture so I can see them in situ. Her room is so bare - they add just a tiny bit of loveliness. (she's only been there 2 weeks, I think she will cosy it up in time)


A while ago Kimberly had these amazing Star Wars printables which I did in a similar way for the boys room.(their room is much more cosy/messy, I had to crop this photo A LOT) These are not available any more for free download, I think you can buy them from her though. I'm not kidding, check regularly, you snooze you loose!                                                                                                                                She also did a brilliant Tardis print which I framed for one of my nephews and then printed a small version for his birthday card. (Don't worry, I'm not all about the giving away, I have a little version of the Tardis print on my desk at work too!)                                                                                             Thank you, thank you Kimberly, I'm a big fan!

  2. They are still available for download from Kimberley's blog at the moment, I'd go and get them now if I were you! I think they'd be great for Birthday Cards too.
