Torn Specialty Paper Backgrounds

My friend Maggi had a play day making backgrounds with more of our friends in Wisconsin where she taught this technique. I'm going to demonstrate it at my local stamp club this month. Need to make samples. Start with an assortment of mulberry and handmade papers.
 I like to tear the mulberry paper by drawing a line with a wet paint brush. This allows a controlled tear, but lets the fibers tear irregularly.
 Glued down the papers with watered down pva glue (I used Elmer's school glue).
