Free Scrapping Set: "Brown Paper Packages"

"Favorite Things"

This offering is all about a few favorite things as a set, offered for both Digital Scrapbooking and Print purposes.

A thunderstorm might make one think of the wonderful song from the musical, "The Sound of Music," wherein the main character, Fräulein Maria sings about how to get over upset and fear by recalling favorite things. Our Studio experienced more than one such storm here recently, forcing a complete shut down of all computer functions. But this helped to inspire us!

"...Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things." I actually do love brown paper, twine, thread, and stitching. I also have been known to collect old sewing and thread notions. 

Favorite things used in our design this time:
Antique books
Sewing Notions
Brown Paper
Things from foreign places (everywhere from London to the Netherlands to France to Italy to as far away as possibly old Russia of the early 1900s as well as Japan was used to make our designs).

Our idea is to prepackage sets from time to time in order to give freely a few items that our guests might enjoy. We really do hope that you'll be able to have fun with our ideas this time!

Digital collage was used as the main medium, as per usual. Add to that one of our own in-Studio "Pretty Papers" in sepia tone, along with a few surprises along the way, and our gathering of objects and ideas began to fit together nicely.

Most of the buttons were made digitally from images of old manuscripts, all found online at Wikimedia Commons in the Pubic Domain section. That being said, we attribute wherever possible. One button's design (see the "Le Secret" button) would include page edges from an interesting image we found online there. Please see Pergamentmakulatur at Wikimedia Commons or that person's lovely old book image, in its entirety, HERE. This is where we found page edges for our one button design. Please attribute that artist's name in your work, but never sell.

Our thread card, marked "Artsilk" is in the Public Domain worldwide, as far as we have been able to determine. The mother-of-pearl buttons used on the same frame we scanned ourselves quite a while ago. In fact, it is safe to say that we have been playing with buttons in our designs for years, but seldom have used any in offerings here at PPS. The lower left button in the same design was likewise scanned, and is an old celluloid button from my own private collection. It was a common enough button during the early part of the 20th century. The sheet music used for the flower is also of PPS origin.

The old map of London, often used by us here before, offered us yet another opportunity to use its beautiful look in this design. It, too, is in the Public Domain, as are the rest of the remaining documents being used here today.

In other words, Please attribute our Studio in your work, as well as that of the Wikimedia artist mentioned above with your
Happy Creativity!
