Dark Academia Printables…. Birds and Blooms!
I love how cool these turned out! Dark and broody and a little bit creepy! A forest of brown, black, green and red… great for Halloween or anytime if you are like me!
There are so many dark images in these ephemera pieces including owls, buzzards, skulls, ravens and roses! Loads of broody colors like brown, rust, black, navy, scarlet and dark green!
Why I Made These Cool Dark Academia Printables
I have ALWAYS been a fan of dark and brooding artwork, but until my friend Rebekah told me that was “dark academia” I didn't know that it had an official name!
I have made tons of free printable collage sheets for my peeps over the years, but this kind of look are the ones that I love the most!
Why Are They Free?!?!
I KNOW, it seems super weird to give away something for free that I could charge an arm and a leg for, but we are both blessed…
Me because I get to have ads on my site which makes it possible for me to take the time to make freebies to get traffic and you because you get wicked cool free printables to use in your mixed media, junk journals or other types of artwork!
For these ones I used a mix of my creativity and public domain images from The Graphics Fairy.
Commercial License For Printing
There is a VERY broad license to use these as long as you print them out first!
The peeps have sold them whole as collage sheets, cut them up and sold them as sets or used them in artwork or junk journals for sale on Etsy.
There is no license to distribute these digitally. If you want to share them with a friend send her the link to this page and she can download them herself!
How To Print Them
These vintage dark academia collage sheets are formatted to print out on 8.5″X11″ letter sized papers.
I like to use a bit heavier weight cardstock in bright white because I think that it makes them more colorful!
These are super easy to use…. instant download, print and go!
