Book Page Text Texture Tutorial

This technique adds interest both visually and textually.  

Vintage book text - Here I used a vintage map
Substrate - I used a shipping tag
Adhesive - I like gel medium
Scissors - Non stick scissors work the best.   
Spray bottle of water

1. Cut a piece of vintage text larger than the substrate.

2. Crumple up the paper in a ball then flatten it out and do it again.  If the paper is a heavy weight spray with water and let it set for a few moments then crumple.

3.  Cover the substrate with adhesive.  Apply the book text to the substrate and smooth down as much as you would like.  

Here is a close up the texture created.  

4. Let dry.
