Check Out This Excerpt From Watercolor in Motion:
Instead of cutting paper to size, tear it. Tearing creates an attractive edge similar to deckle edge that you can paint out to and even leave visible when framing.
Fold it back and forth repeatedly to weaken the seam. Then, fold side up, gently start a small tear along the top end, then place the paper on the edge of a table or, using a straight-edge, apply equal pressure to one side while tearing in one upward motion on the other side. (Note: Some papers are harder to tear due to surface textures. In these cases, wet the seam first with clean water to soften.
