Is there a paper line that reminds you of old faded wallpaper?

I'm looking for real paper as well as digital (I'm a hybrid scrapper.)

I'm doing a heritage project and just don't know where to begin.

Thanks Peas!

Graphic 45 has so many lines that remind me of the 20s through the 40s in general. I think some of them could be like wall paper.

Some of the old chatterbox walls. I don't know if you can still find it, so that may be unhelpful

Jennie Bowlin has made some that have that feeling. Also if you Google DaisyD you will find a few places that still have some in stock that are very much "vintage wallpaper"

Can you tell I like that sort of thing

Old Foofala for Autumn Leaves had lots of paper that looked like old wall paper or the lining of old trunks.

7gypsies has some stuff in their older lines, but not really their new/recent ones.

I loved Daisy D's and so wish they were still around! Some of their stuff was really cool. But the paper I'm thinking of has a more layered/collage look.

Some of the Tim & Beck papers looks like 40s wallpaper to me. Especially the floral patterns.

You might look at K&Co Ancestry line....it's still available. And when I get home tomorrow, I need to locate my box of Dasiy D's i'm hording....just to bring it out and just touch it, look at all it's wonderfulness, well...you get the idea. I might have to be buried with what I don't use up

I found a great collection of vintage-looking wallpaper from Brewster Home Fashions The wallpaper added an antique-like touch to my living room and is great quality. They have many different looks and styles to choose from as well!

Gotta love a spammer that doesn't read the thread they pull up on google.

FYI, This is an old thread.
