I love black scrapbook paper, and I recently felt the urge to create some. The result was this printable black scrollwork scrapbook paper design, which features a dandelion-like image I found in Picnik. I also made a reverse black-on-white version, which I may post eventually. That black-on-white scrapbook paper design was also the basis for a faux-vintage scrollwork scrapbook paper, which I've posted on my Vintage Scrapbooking blog. It has a tan background with a subtle brown design, so it's a little less bold than the design on this page.
But I have to say, I liked this black background version the best of all that I played around with. Either that says I have a dark personality or I just like that black looks so classy and clean. It probably uses up a good bit of printer ink, too; but hey, let's all live a little.
I love to use black patterned backgrounds like this in combination with just a little glitter paper (I got mine in an assortment of gorgeous colors from Target) to form a frame, topped by a colorful vintage image. You can use the black scrapbook paper underneath the glitter paper or the other way around; either way is pretty. I've made some lovely handmade cards using that technique.
I hope you have a good time using this free black scrollwork scrapbook paper! Please come back soon to download more free scrapbooking supplies.
