Here's how you make book page backgrounds:
Tip: to ensure a flat surface, choose book pages that are a similar weight. If you don't intend to stamp on the finished background and like more texture, then by all means use different weight papers.
Now what can you do with these backgrounds. Here are some ideas:
- Stamp a focal image for a card. Choose an open stamp so that the background shows through.
- Incorporate the book page backgrounds into an altered book, art journal or scrapbook page.
- Run a sheet through your die-cutting machine to create different shapes. This flower was cut from a piece of Grunge Board that received the treatment outlined above.
- Don't waste any of the scraps. Use them to create fun backgrounds, such as this Herringbone card*.
