Great, a washout is a simple and effective solution to my concerns.
We can play with the percentage of white to get the best value. I
feel 60-70% could be better.

You are right, and I have to say I love the art intervention kids do
with stickers. I was wondering if the home background was the right
place. Sounds like a valid reason.

Ideally the background could do a subtle zoom to better enhace the
illussion. Would require hardware acceleration though. Could be left
for future enhacement.
