You have spent ages making a beautiful, textured background. You are really pleased with it, but the piece still needs a focal image and you are finding it really hard to cover up that lovely background. What do you do?
Don’t worry! There is a solution and I am demoing it in today’s video. So I hope you have a lot of fun trying this technique out and I can’t wait to see how you use it! Don’t forget to share with me over on Instagram!
