I have a... well, let's call it a little obsession I like to match colors in my photos with paper. So now I have a photo that was made at night - it's practically me on solid dark background. And I can't figure if I want it on dark paper or not. I need some examples of both - but I didn't find anything in gallery. Could you maybe show me some pages with dark photos? I'm stuck.

Glitter Girl just did an adventure about this: Ep 074: Starry Sky Schematics

She shows the same picture with various backgrounds to start then does a beginning to end layout, great video.

I saw this episode and it's not exactly what I want.
I'm gonna end up going over every paper I have with the photo

I just did this with my 4th of July photos. I went spent so much time trying to find something to make these photos look good and wound up inking up some white card stock with some background images and those made me the happiest. The one that I did with red ink I had to cover with vellum because it was too stark behind the dark pictures. In the end I came to the conclusion that dark/night pictures are never going to look as good as brightly lit vivid photos but I wanted that story told and just be ok with it (and DONE).
