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.
