    Using Star Backgrounds for DTP Projects

    Star Scrapbook Page In this guide, we will take a look at five really great star backgrounds. Some of these backgrounds will work great with scrapbooking, and some will work great with other DTP projects like cards, invitations, and so on. The image to the left is a background I took from the list and turned into a very simple scrapbook page. I did not spend much time on this one, but if you take some time and get the embellishments and frames just right, you would have a beautiful scrapbook page. Let's take a look at the backgrounds in this guide.

    To download the backgrounds in this list, you will need to use the links in the Resources section located at the end of this guide.

Enough black background is provided for you to type your invitation text. You could create the invitation and then send it through email or even post it on Facebook and other social networking sites. The abstract star background would also work great as a scrapbook page. You could top it off with star embellishments.
