"Hand Made Paper" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
I created this experimental vintage piece starting with the background, which I thought looked similar to hand made paper. (It's hard to see that in the finished postcard.) I created the background by overlaying one blank old book page over another. Then I added text from a few old book pages. I intentionally gave one text section a faded look, to make it look like it was being seen through the page from the next page in a book. I completed the piece by adding a few old images. (The girl holding flowers is from the Graphics Fairy.)

Because everything on this is old, I decided to enter it in this week's Tuesday's Treasures.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.16.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

this looks so vintage! (I think I am stuck on the word vintage...think this is the third time I have used it tonight.) But this has a take me back in time feel to it.
