Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist. I'm going to show you how to make a wrinkled paper effect in Illustrator. So, I've opened up a new document and what I've actually done is literally wrinkled the piece of computer paper and then, stretch the back out, scan it into Illustrator and this is what I got. And if you want the wrinkled paper effect and you don't have a scanner, there's a lot websites that offer free wrinkled paper templates. And if you just look up free paper templates, you can find it. But, I've done it myself 'cause it's, it's a really easy, a simple method to do. So, and you may not want this color. So, what you can do is you can cop, you can make a new layer and just make sure the paper is on the top layer and then, you can select the color, actually you're going to want to go up to rectangle tool, just draw a little rectangle right below it on the lay; and actually, you can even lock this layer and locking it will just make it so that, it's, it'll be a little bit easier to draw and not mess with your paper. And so, you've got this layer and I'm going to choose kind of cream color. Oops! And so, what I've actually done here is, in this layer, if you go to transparency and multiply and this will just give it, it will just make it so that the color and the image mesh; except, I've actually done it on that layer, so. Let's do that. There we have it. You've got your nice creamed colored wrinkled paper. My name is Alex, and this is how to make wrinkled paper in Illustrator. Thanks.
