Journaling Tips 6 - Print on a faded picture

This takes last week's tip one step farther.  Take a photo of your subject and lighten it considerably in your photo editing software.  Then add your journaling and print it out.  This allows the journaling to be read easily despite the picture in the background, but ties it all to your page nicely.

Here's another example.  In this dual-page spread, the second page has a printed sheet of journaling -- over a faded picture of the writer's house! 

You can also see a journaling block that was printed on regular paper and cut out in a shape before adding it to the first page of the dual page spread. In this case I drew a pen line around it, but it could just as easily have been inked before gluing it to the page.
