    Excellent idea! I'm glad I thought of it!!

    This should take considerable less time than the aged versions..

    Well my scanner doesn't seem to like working with plain paper, but I did the best I could.

    The crumply textures came out much better than the straight folds. I included 2 of each, same size as the previous papers.

    And finally, the jewel in the crown for this entire thread - I'm sitting here waiting for a scan to go through, and look up, and there hanging over my desk like it's been for the last5 years is my wife's drum from her SCA days.

    So.. scanned it! I almost want to keep this one for myself

    But seriously, free to anyone for use, no strings attached.. (but it would be nice to know what my kids grow up into, heh)

    Coyote> I did a mini-tutorial based on RobA's Island building technique to create "distressed edges".... so you don't have to burn real paper to do it. You could get your "usual textures" and electronically distress them...

    Alienskin have a 'burnt edges' filter which makes the process very easy. Here's an example with Coyote's drumskin texture.

    Cheers SG.

    Edit: Um, it looks like you repped me for that. Not that I didn't put an awful lot of effort into carefully downloading all these textures, but I think repping me for it might be going a little over the top....
