    sweeet design mate! scanning crumpled paper is a classic, love it! love the ornaments too! very (inherently) ornate yet appropriate. Type face is great (on the front), what is it?

          7 of them are copies(music) , 8th and 9th contain Midwest travel films(also my work ) in VCD and .avi formats . No art on the cds . All have blank white surfaces.

              I can appreciate the Nouveau flavor of it; that's my favorite genre. Nice job.
              Creativity is taking what is and bringing in what isn't.

                  Bada ba ba ba, I'm loving it. I love the style. It did remind me of the arcade fire album cover at first. Good job!

                    I recently saw an article for creating the crumpled paper look in either PS or Fireworks. Cool technique, but I failed to bookmark it. Great job on the art.

                      The real thing always looks better. Crumple up paper, open it back up and scan it in.

                        Easier too, I'm sure. But if it is a web graphic, file size could be a concern with a scan, unless it's small, then quick and dirty wins.

                          You can always change the size & resolution.

                              Very true Kieth on the size and res. Maybe just me, but I am always willing to try new techniques just to see. Sometimes you discover really cool stuff that way. Besides, if it takes awhile to create, you can always make a brush, a script, a style, or a symbol and recycle it in other design work.
