Maybe the OP does not want it printed. Maybe the OP does not want to use a
scanner either.

To OP: Try changing to yellow shades:

Image -> Colour -> Colour Balance -> move last slider to the left

Also, in the GIMP 1.2.x, have a look under:

Script-Fu -> Decor -> Coffee Stain

Apply this to tiny images to achieve the desired effect at a small
granularity and then replicate the image and embed as a layer or background
in the primary image.

Hope it helps,
