Crinkled copy-paper

I started to watch some of the old Donna Downey - Inspiration Wednesday videos. The simple idea to get such a super textured background with copy paper spoke to me. 

I tried it out instantly - otherwise I would forget to try it out - LOL--

 ( here is the link to the video).

 And.... of course it is meant again for the COLLAGE theme with a twist

Happy Saturday!
