Bokeh Effects for Wonderful Backgrounds
What is Bokeh? If you are a photographer, you will be quite familiar with this effect. Have you ever noticed those bright circles in a photograph background. The word Bokeh is derived from the Japanese language meaning blur. Photographers deliberately blur the background of their picture so that you focus on the main subject.
You have seen these types of pictures and likely thought “how come the picture is not in focus”. It’s all in the name of “art”.
So now, paper crafters have translated this effect into their projects. It was likely someone seeing a picture and then attempting to recreate the effect on their card.
So how is this done on a card? Well, one way to do this is use ink, water, watercolor paper, and a stencil.
I have created a video to show you how to do this technique because it is easier to see it visually rather than use the words in this posts.
Check out the video below.

Try creating a project using the Bokeh technique. It’s a bit messy but fun. No two will be the same.
