I have a bunch of beautiful papers that have less of an organized pattern, and more of a picture (flowers, flourishes, etc), often taking up about 1/3 of the sheet. The papers are lovely, but how do you suggest working with the picture? Treat the picture like an embellishment? Cut the picture off and use it somewhere else?

I treat them as embellisments. The flowers in both of the pics below are part of the paper.

I do too. sometimes I cut the shape a little and slip a picture under it...

These I have a tendency to cut them so that my picture goes under them or use them as the others have

Thank you, all! Those are some great ideas! (I also realize I typed "paper" more times than necessary in my original post! )

If you like embossing, you can use an embossing pen to "color" over the image. It adds a bit of dimension to it. That is what I did to the little critter. I also like to add flocking powder -the clouds and critter nose have it on this one.

ETA: to keep the same colors use clear powder, and if you want to change anything, use another color. I changed the stem color in this one.

I also like to embellish the designs on the paper with stuff like Glossy Accents, glitter pens (I use the Clear Star Gelly Roll one from Sakura), Stickles, etc. just to add some dimension.

I am an embossing virgin. It's on my "too try" list, though.

Like Huskermom....I use stickles a lot on flowers, butterflies, flourishes etc...
I just treat it like an embellishment but I usually dress it up a little. I'm more prone to 3D type embellishments, not crazy about anything too flat so I add stuff....
I'm an embossing junkie...
This one has background snowflakes and flourishes on the paper that I just embossed and embellished (a bit hard to tell in the pic, sorry!)....
