Vintage Watercolor Paper Texture by MoonMouseStudio Vintage Watercolor Paper Texture by MoonMouseStudio
Not the most exciting title, but it is what it is. As a thank-you for 15k pageviews I thought I'd upload some of my own resources that I made and have been using.

Just made this one today =) Finally getting the hang of this texture thing, though I always say that and I always learn something new and better than what I'd been doing.

This texture was made by scanning a piece of 300lb Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper that can be purchased here: [link]

After scanning it I uploaded it into photoshop, cleaned up any scuff marks with the Heal Brush tool (the one that looks like a bandaid) and then tinted it yellow-orange

I then duplicated the image 2 times onto 2 seperate layers
Right-click background layer - Duplicate Layer
I then set each layer to multiply.

I then flipped each layer a different way so that the color tone and texture was more spread-out and textured.

AND WALA! A nice vintage-y looking texture

You may use this to your heart's content, but just make sure you fav this and credit me in the description.

Very cool, I might end up using this for a piece in the future. Don't know which one, maybe the ones I've been making polls for.

Use it to your heart's content. These texture things are actually kinda fun to make. Now I wanna go scavenge my house for odd papers and old maps just to make fun textures. XD
