Trying out something new this Tuesday...

I have seen many layouts where the scrapper used a photo as their background. I thought I would give it a try because I always like the look when I see other people use this technique.

So, here I used an up close shot of my son set to be a bit transparent, with a colored and aged paper in the background. I really like how it turned out and will probably use this technique on future layouts.

This is also a great way to incorporate more photos into your layout. I am a pic queen and take so many and want to use them all, it is hard for me to discard some and only use a few for each page.
