I just wanted to show you how to print on vintage book paper. I loved my mushrooms that I did for Studio 5 but I wanted to add a bit more of the theme to my lanterns. I have been printing images on book paper for some time now and thought everybody knew how to do it. But my friend insisted I show her how it was done. So here is the easy way to print on book paper.
1. Find the image you want to print. If its in ping form then it might not have a background, however most images have a background whether its white and you can’t see it or a color.
2. The trick to this project is the picture you are printing cannot have a background. I found this darling mushroom from http://thegraphicsfairy.com/ however it had a background. I’m no expert but I made a printable with out a background and now can be printed onto a sheet of book paper.
(if you find an image with a background there are lots of websites that will take if off for you, for just a few dollars) I used photo shop and the background eraser tool.
You can frame these cuties or just use them as cards, tags or the background for your lanterns like I did. Supper easy and such a wow factor for very little time and no money! happy printing.
