I recently realized that I could combine marbled designs into making rather interesting papers for scrapbooking. At least I think they are interesting. Let's see what you think!
I used some of the papers from my Blog entry on 23 December 2010, Neutral Papers Freebie from EarlK Design to layer marbled images onto the papers and then using blending modes to create this set of papers. If you haven't downloaded those papers, you may want to go to that entry and download them.
Here is a preview of the papers.
There is a total of 12 papers. The last two papers in the preview are two marbled papers that you can use to create your own interesting papers. All the papers are 12 X 12 inches, 300 ppi, and jpg.
I would appreciate any comments on what you think of this type of thing for use in scrapbooking.
CLICK HERE to download the set of papers. They are a freebie for you. It is a large download. It is a zip file of about 180MB size. You will have to unzip the file to get to the papers.
This will take you to 4shared.com. From there you will be able to download the file. If you haven't used 4shared.com before, when their page opens, on the left-hand side of the page there will be a blue rectangle with a white arrow pointing downward with white text saying "Download Now." Click on that blue box. This will take you to a new window that will have a box that says "Your download link will appear after wait." There will be a circle with the wait period counting down. After the wait, where the words "Your download link will appear after wait" were, you will see the words "Download file now." Click on those words and your download will begin. At least this is how it works on my iMac using the Firefox browser. Also, 4shared.com only allows one person to be downloading the file at a time. So, if you have trouble getting the file to download, you may want to try at a later time as someone may already be downloading it when you tried to do so.
I hope you enjoy these papers. And, give a try to using the two marbled papers to create your own papers.
Or, you can use them on another image and see what happens when you change blending modes. Here is an example where I used the second of the two marbled papers from the above set on an image of a flower. See how the marbling makes the leaves look. I thought it was an interesting look.
That is all for today. If there is enough interest in the marbled papers, I will create more and post them later. So, let me know your thoughts on this technique for creating papers. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
