Torn Papers by Kathryn Estry, MyMemories Designer!

You probably see torn papers in a lot of my scrap kits.  Why do I make them, and what do you do with them?  I love them and use them often in my layouts to add beautiful details and dimension.  Torn papers are .png files, so they’re technically embellishments rather than background papers.  Since they do not completely cover the scrap area, you’ll want to choose a background paper as well.  Most scrappers use a contrasting paper so that the torn edges of the torn paper show up well on the page.  So, it’s all about layering.  Just layer the torn paper over a full paper, and continue to scrap your page. 

Here are some examples of pages made by my Creative Team.  Notice that on one page the torn paper has been made smaller and used as a photo mat.  On another, the torn paper is duplicated and moved to each side for a really pretty effect!  If you like the kits used on these pages, you can click on the previews to see the collections in my shop at MyMemories.

So get your grunge on, and try adding torn papers to your pages!
