If you frequent the Divi groups on Facebook, you’ve likely seen or been helped by “Jonathan Forney”.  His extensive knowledge of website design plus his proclivity to go the extra mile when helping folks in the Divi community made a huge impression on us, and we are super excited that he agreed to contribute to the Divi Help tutorials. And as is typical of Jonathan, he went above and beyond and totally knocked this out of the park!

In this week’s VLOG, Jonathan demonstrates layering backgrounds for Divi. Follow along with his video tutorial to learn how to create a section that has a gradient background layered over a textured background.  You can use this same technique to layer a transparent  PNG over another background color or image to create some interesting parallax effects too. Once you’ve learned the basics, you can apply this same technique to create some awesome combinations for your section backgrounds!
