Isn't it nice, sometimes, to have somebody else do the work? RubyDog's has put together a package of ATC backgrounds for you; cut to size and ready to glue on to a base. Taken from books, encyclopaedias, dictionaries and craft papers in languages from around the world. Of course, you can use these gorgeous pieces of paper in all your other mixed media projects, as well.

The images give you an idea of what you will receive in your order.

If you want more of one language than another, we can probably accommodate you. As well, If you only want backgrounds taken from book pages (which constitutes the majority of each package) and are not interested in craft paper type pieces, such as those on the bottom row of the second picture, just let us know. We're happy to oblige.

Not sure if this is the theme you want to order? Why not try our mixed package? You'll get 2 extra backgrounds, as well.
