Today’s deal is something really special. It’s essentially 7 incredible deals, wrapped into one. We’ve teamed up with 7 highly respected design shops, who have kindly offered some of their greatest resources for a bundle that tops all others.
Just before you scroll down to the beautiful resources, here’s a couple of important points you should know about this bundle and the items included:
- Most of the items in this bundle are best sellers. These items are already insanely popular at full price, and we’ve slashed the price on them by a massive 93%. So many of the resources in this bundle already have hundreds of glowing reviews and positive comments. They’re simply that good!
- When we say vintage, we mean REAL vintage. There’s no fake looking, mock vintage attempts here. Many of the items have incredibly stories behind them. The 2 Lil Owls French Papers were secured at auction after much difficulty and then lovingly scanned it and huge resolutions. So many of the items in this bundle have charming back stories and will give your work a truly authentic vintage edge.
- This bundle is so huge, there’s literally something for every designer in here. There’s textures, fonts, backgrounds, icons, logos, badges, mockup templates, clip art and so much more.

Design a Grungy, Vintage Inspired Poster
WHAT WE’RE CREATING:
In today’s tutorial, I’m going to walk you through several ways to use many of the awesome vintage items in our best-selling vintage bundle.
There’s so much included in this 6GB whopper of a deal that I wanted to combine lots of different resources into a single composition, just to show you how easy it is to layer up these great vintage goodies into an authentic looking outcome.
If you haven’t grabbed the vintage bundle yet, then you’ll need to, in order to follow along properly with this tutorial. We’ll be using dozens of different resources from the bundle, so if you have already purchased it, then you’ll be able to follow along, step by step.
Ok, all ready to go?
Let’s get started!
Start by opening up Photoshop.
Create a new document (A4 paper size, and 300 DPI resolution).
Fill your canvas with a deep brown colour (#332f2c).
Within your new vintage bundle, locate the 2 Lil Owls French Paper Textures (found in part 1 of the bundle).
Paste in one that you like, positioning it to fill your entire canvas:
Now change this layer’s blend mode to ‘multiply’ and reduce it’s opacity to around 50%. Also apply a layer mask, and use a large, soft black paintbrush to mask off some of the areas of texture, making it a little more random looking:
Now play around with adding more French Paper textures to your canvas. Experiment with layer blend modes and opacities. The important thing is to layer up multiple surfaces and elements of detail, without making your piece too busy.
Don’t worry if it looks a little strange at this stage. We’ll be adding up more layers and effects to give it a more authentic vintage look. At this stage it’s just about adding subtle elements of detail to your background, in order to give it a bit more depth.
Open up part seven of your vintage bundle and you’ll find the offerings from Offset design shop.
There are some absolutely love vintage shapes and circles included, that include cool halftone effects and other old-time textures.
Paste in one of the halftone circles from these packs, positioning it in the centre of your canvas.
Reduce it’s opacity to around 40%:
Now continue to find cool shapes within these Offset packs, and paste them into your canvas, resizing them accordingly. I’ve stacked up several shapes to sit within one another, and also applied a nice star design to the bottom right corner:
It’s time to add some vintage logo work to our poster design.
For this piece, I’m going to use the awesome logo/insignia templates from Tom Anders (found in part 8 of your vintage bundle).
Open up your logo pack of choice, and you’ll get a warning that the fonts can’t be found. This is totally normal, so don’t worry.
Each logo/badge/insignia pack in this deal actually comes with a helpful read me text document, providing links where you can download any fonts used in these products totally free.
Here’s an image showing the text document for Tom Ander’s packs:
Once you’ve downloaded these awesome fonts, it’s time to choose a suitable logo for our piece.
I settled on this great design, found with the Tom Anders section of this bundle Vintage Logo-Insignia Bundle – Collection 2.
Changing the text is incredibly easy, once you’ve download the necessary fonts. Simply select your text tool and click on the existing text. Then replace it with text of your choosing.
I replaced the text with some nice vintage messaging, and then was sure to hide the white background layer, so that this logo is set against a transparent background:
Go to layer > merge visible and then copy this logo, so that it’s ready to be moved into our main composition.
Paste in your new logo design, positioning it in the centre of your canvas, and resizing it accordingly.
I also went to image>adjustments>invert to change the logo from black to white, giving it more contrast against our dark brown background:
Change this logo layer’s blend mode to ‘overlay’ and keep the opacity at 100%. Then duplicate it, and reduce the duplicate’s opacity to 50%.
This should create a really nice text effect, as the logo let’s some of the underlying details and patterns show through:
I want to add some more illustrative elements to this poster, so I’m used some vectors from an expired deal of ours. We encourage you to source some suitable free of paid vectors for this purpose.
If you’re looking for incredibly high quality vectors, then we do have a perks section, giving you 15% off Go Media’s entire store (their vectors are world renowned, and we love them!).
In this instance, I just set the vintage vector’s layer blend mode to ‘multiply’ and played around with the opacities a little:
For this step, you can really have some creative fun!
Open up the 2 Lil Owls French Paper packs again, and then paste in several of the designs, positioning them around the edges of your poster, to give a kind of scattered effect.
Be sure to apply a subtle black outer glow blending option to these layers, in order to give the impression of them casting a small shadow on the underlying poster:
If you return to Tom Ander’s section of the bundle, you’ll find some cool bonus textures and light leaks.
Light leaks are a great way to bring your designs together, but creating a unified light effect that can be overlaid over your entire piece.
In this case, you can see that I’ve applied one of the light leak images to the top of my canvas:
When I change the layer blend mode on this light leak layer to ‘screen’ it hides the black background effectively. Then by reducing the layer opacity to around 30%, we get a more subtle, realistic overlay effect:
Here’s the effect after adding a couple more light leaks over other parts of my canvas:
Now we’re going to use the ‘screen textures’ found in part 3 of this bundle, courtesy of Cruzine.
These textures are some of my favourite resources from the entire vintage bundle!
They give you a variety of crumpled, worn and distressed paper/card textures, which are all black/white, and on a primarily dark background. This means that when you set them to ‘screen’ layer blend mode, the black background is hidden, and all the lovely distressed details remain.
Take a look at this beautiful texture:
Now when I change it’s layer blend mode to ‘screen’ and reduce it’s opacity to 50%, you’ll see what happens:
This is a really easy way to give your work a lovely vintage feel.
Here’s my final design, after applying a couple more distressed ‘screen textures’:
AND WE’RE DONE

Create a Vintage Style Creative Collage
WHAT WE’RE CREATING:
We’ve been getting incredible feedback on our current vintage bundle, offering you a whopping 6GB of vintage goodies and resources for just $29 (93% Off).
Today, we wanted to give you a chance to try out some of the awesome designs for free, and give you some creative ideas for how to use them. You’ll learn how to create a beautiful vintage collage design, using various freebies, including the authentic French Papers + Manuscripts courtesy of Denise at 2 Lil Owls.
This tutorial is courtesy of community member Jo Fallon. Jo’s work is amazing, and you should definitely check it out over at RockPortraits.com.
Follow along with this tutorial: Download the freebie + source file
To follow along with this tutorial, you should first download this fantastic freebies pack, containing 5 French Manuscript papers, courtesy of 2 Lil Owls. These authentic papers were secured at auction by Denise Love from 2 Lil Owls, who then lovingly scanned them in at super hi-res, for you guys to use in your digital designs.
Enter your email below to download the free French papers pack, as well as the Photoshop source file for this tutorial, so you can follow along easily.
Open up Photoshop and create a new document (1200px x 1600px, 300dpi)
Download the awesome 2 Lil Owls Free Textures from the Design Cuts Freebie area:
Select the ‘2LO Heritage 6’ background, paste it into your canvas and resize to fit the page. Reduce the opacity to 80%
We’re going to build up the background using the gorgeous Scanned French Papers which are part of the hugely popular current Vintage Bundle.
Select the ‘2lil owls French Papers Script 2-13’ and paste this into your canvas. Using the transform tool, rotate it clockwise so it’s in a portrait format. Then hold down the ‘shift’ key to keep the proportions whilst you resize it to fit your canvas:
Set the blending mode to Colour Burn and reduce the opacity to 80%.
We’ll then adjust the hue/saturation to give the layer a more faded, vintage feel:
Here’s the result:
Select the ‘2lil owls French Papers 2-1’ and paste it into your canvas.
Rotate this 90 degrees anti-clockwise and scale to fit your canvas. Place it at the bottom of your canvas:
We’re now going to isolate the image and text from the paper background using the Background Eraser tool. If you’re using a pen and tablet, turn the pressure sensitivity off for this step.
Background Eraser Settings:
Select a plain area of the background, click and you should end up with something like this:
It doesn’t look great at the moment, so we’ll set the layer blend mode to Multiply to fix that:
Ahh, that’s better!
Now let’s add a few decorative touches.
Set up some rulers and guides to help with the placement. (View > Rulers, View > Show > Guides)
Download the Floral 4 Vector Pack by FanExtra from the Freebie area:
Open the eps file and copy and paste design 2 into your main canvas.
Scale to 30% then flip the layer vertically. Duplicate the layer, flip horizontally to create a mirror image and align to the top corners like so:
Now copy and paste design 1 into your Photoshop canvas.
Scale to 30% and using your guides, place it towards the bottom left of your canvas. Duplicate the layer, flip horizontal and move it to the remaining corner:
Once you’re happy with the placement, hide the guides and merge the 4 decorative layers. Call this layer ‘Corners’ .
Set the blending mode to Multiply and adjust the hue/saturation as follows:
Finally for this step, copy and paste design 7 into your Photoshop canvas. Transform, rotate and place it towards the top left so it goes over the edge of your canvas:
Set the layer blend mode to Overlay and opacity to 45%
Now we’re going to create a subtle frame for our main illustration.
With the foreground colour set to #ffffff draw a large ellipse and reduce the layer opacity to 30%
From the 2 Lil Owls Free Textures you downloaded earlier, paste ‘2LO Confetti 9’ onto your canvas and resize so it fills the page.
Adjust the hue/saturation to the following:
Making sure the texture layer is above the ellipse, right-click on the texture layer and select ‘create clipping mask’. You should now have a subtle frame ready for the next step:
To continue the vintage French vibe, download this awesome Marie Antoinette-ish illustration from Graphics Fairy:
Paste it into your canvas and set the blend mode to Multiply and opacity to 90%. Adjust the hue/saturation to the following:
Scale so it nicely fills the frame. Create a layer mask and use a soft-edged brush to hide any areas that go out of the frame.
Create a new folder called ‘Marie’ and place this as the top layer.
We’re now ready to add some colour!
In your ‘Marie’ folder, create a new layer called ‘skin’ below the main illustration layer and set the blend mode to Multiply.
Select a round, hard-edged brush at about 17px to start.
If you have a graphics pen and tablet, set the opacity to 90% and turn on pressure sensitivity.
If you use a mouse to colour, lower the opacity to about 10% and gradually build up the colour.
The opacity is reduced so we can still see some of the textures coming through the illustration.
You can use any skin-tone preferences, but in this example the colours used are:
Light blue eyeshadow: #ccedf1
Create a new layer set to blend mode Multiply for each of the following:
Then colour each section building up the opacity to create some depth. Feel free to get creative and use a variety of shades to add depth and tone, but stick to fairly muted colours for a more authentic vintage look.
As a guide, here are the base colours used in this example:
Feathers & Dress Blue: #d8e2e3
Dress Pink: #889fa1
Once you’ve coloured your layers, change the folder blending mode to Multiply (instead of Pass Through). You should have something similar to this:
Create a new layer called ‘Base’ below your ‘Marie’ folder. Using the same brush settings as before, select the colour #f7f5ef.
This layer is to let you brighten up the illustration and control how much of the texture shows through.
Building up the opacity so it’s stronger in the face and central parts of the illustration, gradually fading it out towards the edges.
Here’s how it looks without the illustration:
Now we’ll add the stamp effect by isolating another great design from the French Papers set.
Select the ‘2lil owls French Papers 2-17’ and paste it into your canvas.
Set the hue/saturation to the following settings:
Select the background eraser tool and increase the brush size so it covers the whole image. Using the same settings from earlier, select a plain part of the background to remove it.
Set the layer blend mode to multiply and opacity to 75%. Transform and scale so it looks similar to the image below:
Create a layer mask and use a soft-edged brush remove any hard edges:
Download the Grunge Frame Vectors by FanExtra from the Freebie area
Open the ai file in Illustrator and copy and paste the following frame into your Photoshop document:
Transform so it’s slightly larger than your canvas. We want to keep the thicker edges hidden for a more subtle effect.
We’ll change the colour to white by bringing the lightness up to +100 in the hue/saturation settings:
Reduce the layer opacity to 80%. Using the eraser tool at 20% opacity, gradually remove some of the frame to create a softer look.
Finally, download this great paper texture by bashcorpo from deviantart:
Paste it into your canvas and resize it to fit the page. Change the layer blend mode to Multiply.
And we’re done! We hope you really enjoyed this tutorial, as well as this week’s freebies.
