I use Paint Shop Pro and I draw them. Some of the backgrounds I use are in the program itself. You can see examples in my shop linked in my signature.

There is a great video on youtube about this. The lady uses Photoshop elements to do it I believe. It helped me a lot! I'll see if I can find it for ya!

It's too bad that it's yet another tutorial on how to steal images though. Sigh.

Trueeeeee. But I normally just use the same method, minus the stealing... lol

I'd love to learn how to make my own images. Any suggestions?

If you really want custom graphics you have to learn how to draw graphics in an art program like Adobe Illustrator. Then you make a 1 inch circle and place those graphics to size as to fit inside that circle. Then you would group that image and copy and paste it & set those images as many times as it will fit on the page. I went to college for graphics but if you do not have drawing ability you can still make graphics buy looking for an image and re-creating it.

Example - I wanted to make graphic to match a line of clothing. If you find the image on the net you can copy it, enlarge it in your art program and then actually draw it with the pen tool, at least this way you are creating something instead of just copying images straight from the net that you will not be able to alter except for the sizing. When you actually create the graphic you can change the size, color, and backgrounds within your 1 inch circle.
