Today’s post is a really easy DIY for making your own Art without having to spend a penny, yay!
I had some old books I wanted to get rid of, and before I donated them to the charity shop I wondered if there was anything else I could use one or two of them for. That’s when I thought of printing on some of the pages. Obviously this has been done to death before, but I wanted to suggest it to people who may not have done it, or wanted a new way to ‘spruce’ up their drawings/etc.
Okay so first of all, find an old book or two, and carefully tear out a few select pages. I went for a book with yellowish pages, so give it a nice vintage feel. And don’t worry if your edges aren’t torn out perfectly straight, I mean you can cut it out precise with a craft knife if you wish, but personally I prefer ripping it myself and having that torn style down the side.
Okay so now you want to decide what images you want to use. A good tip is to try use an image with a white background, because otherwise that background will also print out too, and might not look great, (Or it might, what do I know!?).
Once you have adjusted your printer settings to the page size, or as near as you can, you’re good to go! I’ll be honest, I didn’t get too specific here with mine, I just risked it and thought they turned out great.
My favourite is the bunny tea cup party!
You could use this method to print off photographs of friends & family, or use a page from a journal for the background; Anything really to personalise it a little more! And what a gorgeous present this would make! Or just frame these beauties for yourself 🙂 I know I’ll be doing both!
