Add a blurry background in Windows Phone apps

How can I add a blurry background with some transparency in a Windows Phone app.

I can create a transparent background using the opacity property or using the first two alpha numbers of the hex color code # AF FFFFFF. But I can't find a way to add blur to any panel. Is there a way or work?

Blur effect is not supported out of the Silverlight box.

Possibly with WriteableBitmapEx

When loading an image in, WriteableBitmap wb

you can get a blurry version with

var wb2 = WriteableBitmapExtensions.Convolute(wb, WriteableBitmapExtensions.KernelGaussianBlur3x3);
