A4 digital download of 10 naturally dyed papers for junk journaling, collaging, decorative paper craft, scrapbooking, gift wrapping and much more.
Natural dyeing is a sort of art form. It requires practice and skill and can be done with wool or paper. These papers were all dyed with plant extracts made using plants from my own garden and kitchen – birch leaves, rose hips, goldenrod flowers, eucalytpus leaves and avocado skins and pits.
I dyed these, then scanned and digitised them and prepared them for printing for my own use and to share with you.
This set is A4 size but you can also buy a set sized for US letter
You can also use the papers for writing letters, making notebooks, as inserts in a planner or diary, for wrapping small presents (not space hoppers, remember!) and decorating small storage items such as coffee cans as pen pots. Some of the uses I’ve put them to anyway!
The downloads are available as pdf files, ready for you to print in A4 size. Print borderless on matt photo paper for the best results.
You need a printer to use these pages and they can be printed on the paper of your choice. I recommend 100gsm copy paper for pages and collaging or use as a wrapping paper or as letter writing paper. For a cover, cardstock or matt photo paper also work well.
I can’t help you with technical issues relating to your printer set up as every printer and system is different. These files are pdf files and you will be able to click, open and print using free software on a Mac or Windows based system. If you run into difficulty, you can google for help, or ask someone you know who is tech savvy. Other digital sellers recommend asking a kid, which seems like good advice to me!
