Technique to Try: Subtle Layering

I just love the layering Becky Novacek used in this layout.  She used a simple design to create the layout, but added a subtle layer of papers and tags under the photos.  The layers barely peek through the edges, but matt the photos with interest and texture at the same time.  The piece of the patterned paper Compile adds a striking background for the title.

Next time you are looking to matt your photos - try a subtle layering effect like this instead!
