8 Re-Stained Paper Textures

I'm always looking for ways to combine existing textures to make new and interesting resources for you guys. This time around I took a bunch of paper textures, some of them stained, and combined them in layers with different blending modes in Photoshop. I also used a high-res set of watercolor brushes to add a little extra detail. The outcome is a brand new set of textures for you guys to utilize in your designs. I hope you like 'em!

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

these were just what i was looking for on a job im doing for PEN Canada annual report. PEN is like Amenesty International for writers and journalists. Their annual report features stories about writers in foreign countries who are political prisoners. these paper textures helped make the illustrations look like they were smuggled out of Libya and places like that.

love these!

i used one recently for a friend's wedding present. a mutual friend made wine and asked me to design the label. i altered the hue to a more reddish tint and made a kind of cut-out of their comined faces.

unfortunately the wedding was hours away and i was unable to attend. i am hoping a bottle was saved for me though!

Caleb, it is so incredibly generous of you to share so many great textures with the design community and really expect nothing more than the occasional donation! I am so ridiculously poor right now but $4 is such a small price to pay to say thank you so much. ~Lisa
