I have been testing some layered backgrounds for new botanical prints. There is an endless amount of script ephemera out there in the public domain that I personally can never pass up. Sometimes the perfect script requires some work, removing the background on these documents can take minutes to hours, but the end result is remarkable. Using a blank (PNG) background, you can layer paper all day long and make something completely your own. 🙂
For myself, I seem to always head to the water stained pieces for character, loving this look personally for my home. Such a great backer in a bookshelf or in a small frame. This particular piece is an 11 x 14, but it’s been resized to 4 x 6 inches as a sampler. It’s not perfect as I am still deciding on the background. I love sampler sizes especially for journaling, greeting card, papercrafts, or a small piece of botanical art.
I have attached the PDF for easy printing. This sampler is for personal use only.
What are your favorite botanical pieces?
I hope you have a beautiful Sunday!
Much love & hugs!
