Sample ColourWashed - A New Series

New Paper Starters

After a number of designers asked (many) times about my multi-colored papers and backgrounds, I am releasing three sets of these high-drama paper-starters for sale at

Softly blending colors smoothly transition across a page - reminding me of how watercolors wash a paper, but these designer resources are all digital. (Now you know how they got their name!) These beauties are 300dpi, 12x12 jpg images in full color. There's a regular set, a bright set, and a pastel set.

A full commercial-use license comes with each set, even the full-size free sample below.

What can you do with them?

What can't you do! I've used this technique in some of my best selling kits - people love the color variation and blending! The papers come texture free so that you can add exactly the right texture you need to complement or match your own designs.

You can also put a pattern over them, use them to fill a pattern, or to colorize an element. If you're disappointed they're not available in greyscale - then gosh, turn them greyscale and fiddle with them - your creativity is the only limit!

They're available for $3.99 for a set of 4 - or all three sets in a discount bundle.

Click the thumbnail below for the free download page and play with this wonderfully purpled ColourWash page. Professional use is allowed for this free sample, too.

I'd love to see what you use them for! They can go from elegant to fantasy, from contemporary to heritage. It's all your wrist!

Design Professionals: take advantage of my Designer Spotlight - PM or email me when you use one of my CU items in your products for sale. Then I'll feature it on my blog and add it to the most recent previews right in the shop for this set.
