|Family Photo Archive|
I decided to tackle this project using two different methods. First I chose a photo and laid it on a pattern that I like.
My patterns came from my furniture (sofa, chair), my floors (tiles, hardwood), wallpaper and other spots in my house.
Below are examples of putting a photo on a pattern that I like, then taking the lid off my Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner, turning it upside down to scan and pressing the green button.

You will also find that you need to crop your scan to create a border that is symmetrical as it's difficult to accomplish in the original layout of photo and background

The second way I will create mats and borders is to scan various patterns around my home and in nature. Then I'll import those into my photo editing software and layer the original photo (which I've scanned using my FlipPal) on top.
I'm excited about using my Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner to finish creating a unique digital scrapbook of my family photos with my own borders.
