Repairing ripped drywall


I have gotten some great advice on corners...now a new issue.

I removed a large bathroom mirror and the adhesive removed some of the paper coating from the drywall. Now I am left with several areas where the drywall paper is exposed (the brown paper).

I tried removing all lips and shreds of paper so it was flat. If I spread some compound over, the moisture causes the paper to bubble. How should I prepare these spots prior to spreading mud down?

Thanks in advance for your comments.
