Torn paper background techniques

The picture on left is a collage made with my painted papers, torn and layered onto brown paper.
Other 2 pics. are magazine pages.
They look cool reproduced in different shades and printed out.
eg. fade a lot, use different masks and tints.
Cut up and turn sideways.
Make more strips and add black or gold between.
These are ideas I am playing with.
Yes, some glitter added to some, natch!

Anxious to see what you do with these colorful papers. I spent the day making turp paper. Not sure I like what I am turning up with. Sharon

Lilla: These are beautiful just as they are - but I am very into texture. Hope you will show us what you do with them. I am tickled to have found you and will be back.
