Catch a Wave

One of the drawbacks of using a dark background paper is that it can make your photos appear darker and less apt to “pop” off your page. While my photos of my wonderful husband kiteboarding were very bright, I felt they needed a little more distinction from the dark black paper by DCWV. I grabbed my white Sharpie Paint Pen and edged the photos with it. I was able to achieve the distinct boundaries that I was looking for without having to add another layer of paper to my layout. Overall, it was cheaper and had the same effect. I am always up for saving my supplies and creating the same look in a multitude of ways.
