Default Transparent Gapps possible??

I know this may seem a bit of a silly question but I love transparent widgets and so forth. I was wondering if it would be possible to have Gapps that are transparent.

For instance, the swipe to the left feature of getting Google now on the home screen is nice but sometimes I love still seeing my family photos in the background. Or even semi transparent so that you could still see the background partially, or maybe modify something within the system to make all apps appear with some sort of transparency like an Xposed Module, anyone know if its possible?


(I used search but I'm on mobile so it basically included every thread that included the word 'gapps', nothing about transparent apps)
