How to 'Age' a Piece of Paper

I wrote about 'folding' a corner in this post a few days ago. If you want to give the page the yellowed, aged effect, one simple way of doing it is to import the image into iPhoto, click Effects and then Sepia. Try Antique as well. If 'yellowness' is not enough, click on Boost Colour.

Here is how the note-pad page looks like after the process.


This image is a scan of a page I tore from my pad. If you don't have a scanner, try setting a digital camera (or your mobile phone camera) to macro and just photograph a piece of lined paper, crop the image in iPhoto or Preview afterwards and use as clipart.

Oh, and have a look at the Collector's template, it has several clipart images of 'antique' paper. Select and copy-paste into your own project.
