    No, the bokeh do not have to be round at all. They can be any shape you'd like :)

    I think it would work really well on lots of photos. I've seen portraits, landscapes, sky photos. Lots of great examples in the pages that have been posted so far, too :)

    I was intimidated by this at first, but really enjoyed learning something new. I never really thought of putting the bokeh onto the picture itself. Thanks so much for the fun challenge!

    For Artisan users who may have worried about this, I found a clear bokeh - put it over my photo and enlarged and arranged it until I was happy - like the tutorial in the directions. Then I grouped the photo and bokeh and straight cut off the overhanging bokeh. I did use the bokeh again as an element behind the photo at the bottom left, separately. I also chose a bokeh paper that had some hearts in it too.
