Not all of us are great photographers (especially me) and sometimes we get imperfect photos, just like the one I used in this LO. It's grainy and a little blurry but I wanted to use it in a Lo because I really like it.
My solution to this problem was not to use it in its original colors but to turn it into black and white. This solution softened the imperfections without losing the essence of the photo. If you want to turn a photo to black and white you can use Photoshop or any free program online that offers photo editing options.
Working with black and white photos allows you to use more vibrant colors in a LO that would not clash with a colorful photo and create noisier backgrounds. In this LO I used a resist paper that has a printed pattern that is for resist techniques like misting.
