    I'm making a WANTED poster. Where do I look to find backgrounds? I'm
    looking for the background to look like an old-fashioned WANTED poster where
    the paper is burnt looking and scrolls on the top and bottom, or something of
    that nature.

    Where do I look?

    Thank you.

  3. There's probably something in the Clip Art Gallery, but I can't seem to find
    the magic search terms (we'll have to wait for Mary Sauer for that), but see
    http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=parchment+scroll&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2.

    It would be more interesting to print your document on paper that was
    already the color you wanted, crinkle it a bit, and *carefully* burn the
    edges with a flame.
