I used a pic of the dory on the wharf as a background.... I reduced the opacity until it was a subtle background. Because I wanted to keep the focal point on the bright photo of my daughter holding a starfish but at the ssame timme I wanted to draw the viewer's eye to the background pic, so I kept the joournaling to a minimal and added a bold title .
Again, I let the pics remain the focal point, with just a small stamp from the Travellers stamp set added for a little touch to the page.
One of my favorite features about the My Digital Studio program is that it lets me take any of my digital pics and turn them into a background for my scrap layouts. How awesome is that!!!! Easy ,too! This page took just a few minutes to make, and I love the results!
I tend to make very linear pages whenever I digiscrap... it's the only way I can crop straight lines!!! LOL
