I'm not exactly sure, but it reads that you want to end up with a circular
picture, but that somehow the area beyond it's circular border is not
behaving the way you want. If this is true, perhaps you can mask it. Make
your graphic to match the background, then cut out a circle to match your
image, and lay it over the image.

Will that work?
