Hello again!

Lately I saw some beautiful maps like Ramahs great map of Vaniyah (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?5553-Vaniya). The map seems to be folded and folded again and I like the Idea of an used folded an knitted piece of paper, a map you use and donīt hang it on the wall.

And so I asked myself if there is an tutorial or does anyone here has an Idea how to reproduce this style with GIMP?

cheeerz from Germany!

A few others that are photoshop but should translate easily are:
