While I was working on a new journal I discovered that I needed some basic papers to use as reverse side where I have lots of space to write. Of course I have plenty of scans from real vintage papers that suit this purpose yet I felt I needed something else😊.
Well, the result is a huge set of 16 papers that have a vintage feel but also look like they have been made with water colour. Perfect for any journal, because you can mix & match these with virtually any style and colour theme you have going in your journals and paper craft projects.
The base of the papers is made from scans of real vintage paper. On top of that I used my own photographs of flowers, trees and other nature elements. By using soft overlay settings I created a feel of water colour paintings.
To make this kit as versatile as possible I used a range of colours. I feel like you can mix & match these papers with almost any style or colour theme you have going in your journals and other paper crafts.
What can you use these papers for?
I don’t think I can make a list that gives you all the possibilities 😄 but here is a list with the first things that came to my mind:
- Reverse side
- Writing page
- Background paper
- Base for collages
I’m sure you can think of more ways to use them. Let me know in a comment? 😊
That’s it for now. I hope you’ll love the papers as much as I do. I’m off to make another journal now … 😄
