I would do my art work using a graphics program...Print it....fold it and maybe make it look older...Scan it and drop it on an image that is a little wider.

I really like that approach John. Doing exactly as what has happened to the paper. Clear thinking.

There are mountains written on photoshop techniques doing this kind of stuff and I look at it and wonder how the process evolved after 10 pages of description which always presumes you have a higher degree in graphic program manipulation before you even start!

I have a number of friends into photo manipulation/modification or mods as they are called....I got into it a little bit also and you just sort of get used to starting with an actual organic source....I bookmarked the background site and may use on one of my for fun sites....I am in the middle of changing my decor site and using one of my own backgrounds....You did give me an idea on a post from way back concerning banners and using a transparent background...Just one of those simple things I had forgot about and it worked great on my new pages.

Yours is a site that is truly beautiful. It's like gems coming out for you from the screen. It's so relaxed and easy. Peaceful even.

I'm sure your rethink will be wonderful.
