Large Photo Background - Exploring

Sometimes I really like using one of my photos as my background paper for a scrapbook page, like I did here.  This is pretty easy for an 8" x 8" page or 8.5" x 11" page - a little harder for a 12" x 12".  I have a wide body printer that allows me to print my pictures in this larger size, but if you don't have one, there are plenty of places on the internet where you can order a 12" x 12" print.  When creating your background this way, you can print your journaling as a part of the background photo, by adding it in your photo editing software before printing. 

On this "Exploring" page, the background photo gives a feel for the area around where I saw the pelican, whose picture I added to this page.
