Below are 2 background papers I made, by just taking a photo of something in my garden.
This first one is the blurred image behind a clear photo of a flower. (It's called depth of field, to explain further, when you focus on a flower for instance and you use a zoom lens the background will be out of focus, so it is the out of focus part of the photo cropped)
This second one is simply a photo of a paver
Now I just found a kit I thought would go with the colours well and made a LO with them as you will see below
So what I would like you to do is get your cameras out and take a photo of anything you think might make a good BG paper, you will be surprised at what there is.
And believe me it becomes addictive you will find yourself taking photos of the most crazy things lol. You will be out with friends and you will want to take a photo of something that you can picture in your mind would look great as a BG paper and they will think you are weird!
Anyway have fun with this and if you really want to add a certain depth and you have photoshop or even you should be able to do it on SBM you can do something like this
And see how your LO will have that certain something extra
So I want you to tell us all what your photo was, give us a before and after and I can't wait to see what you come up with.
I realize this one can be a little time consuming so I will wait patiently :-)
We have been cleaning out Grand Parents house...... We have found ALOT of Family history Photos. We even found a scrapbook from the late 1800's to early 1900's.... So Yes, Ya'll will be seeing lots of Old Photo's, while I get them all scrapped up I did genealogy for years also, so I got Books on top of Books.... I Love the Old photos
