DON'T FORGET ABOUT BACKGROUNDS


A TEXTURED BACKGROUND can add interest and character to your work, but must be very carefully selected so that it
enhances and is appropriate to the subject matter, and does not dominate.

You can create your own textures in various ways. One way is to use your own photos of textures and/or search for them
on Google. As you can
see below, these textures can be altered using software such as Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro.
