For The Love Of Paper

I know I am not alone when I say that I have a love of vintage paper.  Old book pages, torn and tattered maps, discarded love letters, sheet music and wall paper, I love it all!  These vintage relics with their worn pages and musty smell have a story to tell.  I love adding bits and pieces of these found papers in the art I create.  Scrolling through Pinterest and Etsy I found so many lovely paper arts giving these vintage papers a repurposed life.  Here are a few of my favorites.
