I found a very cool Blog, with My Digital Studio Challenges, oooh right up my alley!
A background technique that could be applied to a card or scrapbook page, the herringbone technique.
She even posted a link to the tutorial AWESOME! (I really needed that one)
This one turned out okay, Was just goofing around, didn't have a photo in mind when I started. The photo came after completion. I had to go search my stash for a Christmasy pic!
Thank you Marla for always sharing photos!
My second page, I planned around the photo, using color match to do it. All the stripes match their clothes and the blue in the sky. I really love this photo of my Uncle and his wife.
The drop shadow shows better on this one too.
