adding strata seems like a good idea to me, but then you'd have to change the larger shape of the rocks themselves to align to the strata: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...N6WhiQKD87XCDw
try playing with different sizes of rocks in the different layers, or even some folding, great examples of which are in that link.
the blue lines seemed to me to be the most natural-looking discontinuity (dividing line between layers of strata), so i traced them over and worked from there.
try flattening out the red areas. the idea is that they are made of less-hardy rock than the other areas, and are therefore more easily weathered by rain and wind and the like.
to help sell this idea, add in a whole lot more stress fracturing in the green-line areas. the circled green bit is a good example of the pitted, fractured look of weaker rock.
because the red-painted rock is weaker than the rock surrounding it, it'd make sense that boulders, like the ones circled in purple, would be pulled by gravity out of their home strata and into the weaker rock. i don't think that this would lend to well to tiling, so you may want to split them into submodels.
