February Digitals. Go ahead and open the file in Photoshop (I am using Photoshop Elements). If you see this type of checkered background on a file, this means it is probably a PNG, meaning it has a transparent background. These types of files can be placed on other layers such as paper or photos, and you won't be able to see the background. Just the elements of the file.
February kit and wood veneer. This is such a great technique to customize patterned paper for your projects. I hope you will try it soon!!
