    You have a good point there. Ill use Oxford Runes


    Okay I added 3 notes for now just to show u how it would look, so that if u guys do like it i can add more, and if u dont i can remove them. I dont care for the notes myself that much, but I do like the fading on the words

    I don't really like how it turned out (but I don't think you need to fill the white space).

    I second the Sage, that would be a cool technique to know just for general knowledge.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    its really simple, but it looks really cool


    Without going into much depth, you have to have a layer for each page (I go with 15 pages) then basically use the selection tool to make a parchment like selection, but make one side of the selection straight. Then fill it with your color. Deselect, go on to your next layer, then do that again, but shift it over slightly. Keep doing that until you have the look you want. Then if your lazy, copy all the layers, put the copies above the others, and rearrange them and flip them vertically to what you like, and the pages look different on the opposite side that way. Then use the burn tool on each of the layers, add a drop shadow, find a way to add texture that u like (I create a new layer, get the selection of all the pages, do plasma, desaturate it, and set it to overlay) and your done

    thats just a basic overview of what I did tho, not very specific
