Torn paper is used in several beautiful designs to emphasize parts on a site. It has been used on very ‘clean’ as well as on very ‘dirty’ styled designs. If you like this feature and you are seeking for some inspiration so you can use it on your own design, I have gathered a list of gorgeous websites that use it in several ways.

Whether you are looking to use torn paper as a page background, or as a menu background, check the following list to get some inspiration.

    Nice list Vicky. I have been a fan of ma.tt for a while, great layout. Also, I think that grunge thing has been making a comeback last of lately, but the difference between now, and 4 years ago is that usability if more evident. Not as much mystery-meat.
