This is something i learned how to do in an art class at school. The assignment was not intended for scrapbook use, but if it works, why not?

To make your own background page, flip through magazines and cut and paste a collage of pictures in any design to make your own background page. The cut and paste copy will more than likely look tacky and you'll be able to tell that it's been made that way, so take this copy to a nearby Staples store (or any store that offers colored copying), and run it through a colored copier! The page that prints out will look like one solid image, and have more of a computer design effect than cut and paste!
