Distress, distress, distress!!

Tear and ink the edges, crumple up the paper and then lay it flat again, use a distressing tool. Have fun!!

And you can artificially yellow it by misting it with a stain.

I like to crumple the paper, add a lil ink or mist and water and then smooth it out and let it dry.
