I would do the same as MariJ suggested, using a large, round, soft edge eraser brush at 50% opacity.

Regarding title page, you need "white space".  Spreading out the words to cover the page isn't allowing you to create a focus, and then a natural flow.  Think of groups of words as photos, to help you arrange and size them accordingly.  Try for an odd number of word groups, just like when you scrapbook photos.

Love it!  Clipping the paper to the mask as MariJ suggested earlier, looks great and makes a perfect area for the journalling.

Tough choice, they both look nice!


As MariJ mentioned, there is all that grey masking around the photo.  How about using that area (rather than the top) for your journal text?  Then I would use the "magazine article" background.  Your journalling would look like photo captioning, which goes well with the magazine article look.  Move photo up so captioning isn't too close to bottom edge.

Frustrated...kind of wish I hadn't bought this....here's screenshot of second page...I have tried adding various pngs to this for second photo. I love flowers but I normally scrap around the function...therefore I don't always think flowers work.



I like the composition and colors.  If you're not sure about using flowers, would there be some other embellishments more symbolic of the fundraiser?
