different materials for journal pages

The page on the left is paper towel adhered to a fusible stabilizer.  There's a slight problem with that though - only the first layer of the paper towel adheres.  The second ply separates.  I think I added a coat of matte medium to make sure that the second layer didn't come away totally.
The page on the right is many different papers torn in strips and adhered to wax paper with a watered down white glue.  Both sides of the wax paper is covered with  the strips of paper.  When it was all dry I ironed it.   It was originally going to be the cover for this journal but it wasn't big enough.
