Desiging Your Own Paper

Most all of us have lots of experience in doodling. It probably started back in 2nd grade and progressed to more elaborate pieces in 10th grade.  Now you can put your experience to work in creating your own paper!

iDiY featured Artysville’s tutorial for these fun doodle cards.


Items needed: a scanner, a color printer, Photoshop and your awesome artwork


Colored Cardstock



“(1) scan your black and white doodle at hi-res; (2) open the image in Photoshop; (3) pick  a color that’s closest to the color of your paper; (4) colorize with the Magic Wand and Fill tool; (5) print…”


“… and cut to desired size”


For someone who has no interest in mastering gocco, this is definitely more my speed and allows me to keep being creative.
