Create new forms by framing backgrounds and using positive and negative space. Background masks are set above your background elements, below your content. They work by framing your background colors, gradients, photos, and videos. You can transform backgrounds into unique creative layouts in a matter of no time. Masks are created using SVGs, which means they’re extremely crisp, lightweight, and adapt to any device size.
Let’s look at each of the options in the “Masks and Patterns Background” below.
