I use this book as inspiration and backgrounds to digital scrapbooking and creating imaginative photograph compositions. The downfall is that some of the patterns are lumped together and so you cannot manipulate them to fill as you wish. All in all, what you buy is straight forward and no surprise to anyone who purchases it, and simple to use.
