We have been decorating recently and we got lots of samples of wallpapers because we couldn't agree on one. I thought I should use the samples in some way so I have made texture plates out of the textured ones. [we chose a patterned wallpaper for the walls in the end]
Basically I stuck pieces of wallpaper to card. Below are some of the papers I made using the plates. Recycled laser prints - the paper is thin and started curling up but they will be used for collage.
I made the first texture plate on day 2 of 30daysofcreativity.
