Selfmade 12x12" patterned paper

Ok. As i promised, here is a small photo tutorial on my selfmade patterned paper.

I used
12x12" white cardstock
Glimmer Mist Caramel Apple
Versamark Watermark stamp pad
different stamps
Vintage Photo distress stain
Distress pads in Antique Linen, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo
Blending tool
Archival Ink sepia
Mini Mister
soft brush
perfect pearls gold
Distress stickels Rock Candy

First i stamped with all my stamps and the watermark pad all over the page.
I dried everything with the heat tool. Then i sprayed the page with the Glimmer Mist.

After this i used the Antique linen and the Blending tool and colored nearly the whole page.
After this i used the Minimister to spritz some water all over the paper to blend the colors and lighten it a bit.
Then i took the wild honey to color it more on the outside.

After this i stamped again some elements with the Watermark inkpad and dried with Heat tool.
Then i did another layer of paint with Vintage Photo. After this I put some water on my fingers and spritzed it on the paper and let it set for some seconds. Then i dried it with the heat tool
Than i used the Archival Ink to stamp my images on the paper.

While the ink was still wet i took a soft brush and some perfect pearls in gold and put it on some of the stamped images.

The last things i added was some Distress stickles Rock Candy on a butterfly and Vintage Photo distress stain all around the edge..

And here is the finished paper.


  1. Schöne Hintergrundtechnik. Machst du darauf jetzt ein Layout?
    Danke für deinen Tip. Ich werde in besagten Läden mal rein schauen, die haben wir hier tatsächlich auch. Hoffentlich verfalle ich nicht irgendwelchen, aufgemotzen Schränken(:o)

  2. That is really pretty, and you've put so much work into it. It must be for a very special project! I really love how you've done the edge.
