It crossed my mind to do a blank wall back there but I'm an avid recycler of structures...never know which way it'll be oriented on the RGS 2.0 someday!

Everything is spectacular Dave, but the backdrop especially so. Took me a minute to figure out what exactly was going on. Well done  :D

I look at your photos and can almost feel that clean, cool mountain air...

The backdrop does look amazing, but if this is the permanent solution you might run a black Sharpie along the edge of the paper to hide the edge just a little, if circumstances allow of course.  I'm loving this layout thread!

I tried that but the problem is that the ink bleeds.  Then it looks like a cartoon outline.

Try rubbing a pencil along the edge or black chalk.

lol  It's just that I've tried using a Sharpie and it bled so I tired a pencil. A pencil isn't really black, but it's better than a white edge. Chalk will get you a black edge.

So did you use scenery to match the backdrop or did you tweak the backdrop to match the scenery?
