I use construction paper from the local office supply store. It works great and its about 20 cents a sheet. Suprisingly water resistant too.

Back before one of the great board outages, there was a long discussion about backgrounds. I believe someone here (Steve maybe?) said he used cork of the kind you can evidently buy as a wall covering. You can attach Java moss and ferns to the cork and it makes a nice, natural looking background. Just an idea Smile
