Ways to Repeat Photos into Backgrounds

My Sketch World and last months sketch of the month for October
allowed me to share a tutorial/tip with you.
Ways to Repeat Photos into Backgrounds.
Here is an amazing link that I used to inspire me.
The article is by Jana Morton and it was amazing and full of
fabulous and beautiful ideas.
I don't have the full knowledge of digital photo editing but she has
inspired me to want to pursue this more... in the near future.
I however was working this month with MSW Lucy's amazing layout sketch and
 decided to try at least something a bit different using photo repeat in my
 background.  My technique by no means touches any thing that Jana shared
 with us but I really had fun and love my finished page.
 

Originally I tried printing on photo paper the 2 images together with the
 backgound one as above in black n white and the coloured one in front...
but on photo paper it just didn't look right. I then tried this ..
printed the black n white on actual scrapping paper with totally different
texture and colouring. The real photo is on regular shiny photo paper in colour.
 I matted the background and popped it up overlapping the other back ground
 one. The focus now is back on the coloured one as it should be with the
 softer more sutle one in the background only and this
 sketch was perfect for this page.  Thanks for stopping by today ..... Bev DT

Cool idea Bev! I just did a page recently using double photos matted on top of each other in different sizes and loved the way it looked! This is a really neat effect you've created!

What a great idea and doesn't seem that hard.

I love the idea! I will have to try this with a photo I took at the Family Day Celebration this summer... I have one that I've already printed in color and B&W so it will be easy for me to try! :) Thanks for sharing this!
