  1. You could also just put your extraction on a paper background from any collection and add embellishments, etc.
    I don’t know where you would get realistic backgrounds, but you could always take your own photo (say like of a playground for example) and use that full sized (or not) as your background.

    Sometimes there are background papers that are part of a collection that look like the generic backgrounds you might be looking for.

    I scrap in landscape 8.5x11 and would love to see some templates in that size. There are a few in portrait style, but landscape seems to out of fashion. I love brushes and styles. The idea of a template only for clusters is a great one. I'm always looking looking for swirls and flourishes.

    This is so true about templates, the only ones I’ve seen are Marlene Peacock’s sets.   I don’t scrap in this size, but I print books at Costco and this is the size I use for books.   So more templates in landscape size would be very helpful.

    Thank you Marilyn-I'm still not convinced I explained it well.  🤦🏼‍♀️

    I thought you explained it perfectly and with the graphics it was even better.
    I am a big-time layer user and often have so many it’s hard to keep track.   A few tips I have are that when I have multiple layers, I will rename some of them to find things easier - especially the little items which are hard to see.  
    I’ll also lock pieces that go together so when I move them they all move at once.
    And, very often when scrapping I will use a layer and not like it, or duplicate one in case I make a mistake on the original, or even try a few different layers to see what I prefer.   I end up turning off the eye on the ones I don’t want - and then end up with a large amount of unseen layers.  Jody showed me once that if I go to my layers panel (I’m in PSE 13) and click the down arrow on the 3 little lines - there will be a “delete hidden layers” option which gets rid of all those layers I don’t want to keep in one swoop.   It’s usually one of the last things I do on a page and saves a lot of time and effort.

    Marilyn!  We missed you!

    Thanks Mikelle, it’s been a long haul through Pandemic worries and quarantine and then having to take care of a family member who had a fall.   It was overwhelming so I’ve been trying to take it easy and relax.   It’s nice to be outside more now and I’m hoping to start more scrapping.   Missed you too.
