This month I want to challenge you to print a photo onto a Webster's Pages paper and scrap it. I'll share some tips below to get you started. Here is my example using the new Lullabye Lane collection.
I printed the photo onto a backside from one of the Christmas lines....it was perfect because it was a tone-on-tone pattern.
1. A full face shot is not usually the best choice of photos.....a busy pattern would be distracting over a face. Side view or back shots work really well for this. Or a landscape photo, like with flowers.
2. I crop my photo to a size that works in my printer....here I used a 4x6 and selected to print a 4x6 (borderless) on my paper type. My printer also lets me choose paper type and quality. I always print the best quality I can and I chose matte presentation paper.
3. A photo that has a light background or a lot of white shows up much better....otherwise you lose most of the background pattern from the paper. Or it will get really dark.
4. This can also be done digitally, if you like.....just layer the patterned paper over your photo and use a blending mode, like soft light or screen. PM me if you have any questions about this.
5. You may want to increase the contrast or adjust the levels of your photo to really make it pop.
And another layout using this technique - this photo was changed to black and white and I put a color burn in teal over it, before printing.
