How to make a retro collage video tutorial and free sample
I am a big fan of vintage looking collages and anything old paper-related. I can spend hours looking through old photographs, postcards, scribbles, etc, and my love of typewriters is embarrassingly well-documented. So I decided to put together (for myself and others) a pack of paper and scribbles that can be used in digital collages and that will go well with my latest Office Typewriter font.
All elements were handmade and scanned at 600 dpi, and are available as a Photoshop ABR file and individual transparent PNGs, which you can just drag and drop on your designs. So easy to use and perfect for adding a little visual interest to your collage designs, in posters, postcards, packaging, branding, social media posts, etc.
The Paper and Scribbles pack includes 270+ elements (scribbles, doodles, squiggles, circles and underlines):
122 elements from 4 different markers
39 pen elements
61 pencil elements
25 wax crayon elements
6 splatters elements
10 tape elements
10 high resolution paper scans (various sizes, minimum 1815 px width)
Not sure how to use this set? No problem!
I have made a couple of tutorials to help get you started. In the first tutorial, I go over how to install the Photoshop brushes and get started using them. In the second tutorial, I go over the steps I used to create one of the collages in my preview images. For this, I am also offering you a free sample of the pack, which includes 2 marker brushes, 2 pen brushes, 1 pencil brush, 1 tape brush and 2 paper textures.
Hope you enjoy!
