Hello dears.

I love the ''big picture background'' scrapbooking technique and today I want to share with you three ways to use a big scenic photo or portrait.


  • For background choose a scenic picture with negative space. 

  • This kind of layouts also work perfect with desaturated image as a background.

  • Use basic white frames for photos to give a stylish look to your page.

  • Add some journaling to your layout. Wordart also will be working perfect.


  • For background I advise you to use a solid paper. I used beige, it works perfect with the photo colors. 

  • This kind of layouts work perfect with portraits.

  • Add some brushes, accents or messy stitches to your page. Small elements like flowers, buttons etc. will be also working very good.


  • Play with blending and turn your photo into background to highlight the main photos on your layout. 

  • You can use the same photo for background, how I did, or try the different photos.

  • The photos of landscape and flowers will be also working very good for this kind of layouts.

  • Add wordbits, title or wordart to give more accents to your page.

Do you know the other ways of using a big picture background? Share with me in the comments.

X.O., your Olesya
