Anne,

In the past, I've used the eso-pic package to add such watermarks (example below). Reading the eso-pic documentation (eg http://anorien.csc.warwick.ac.uk/mirrors/CTAN/macros/latex/contrib/eso-pic/eso-pic.pdf) shows that there are also ClearShipoutPIcture commands, so it should be able to turn on/off watermarks or other background (or foreground) things throughout your document.

\documentclass{whatever}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{eso-pic}
\definecolor{lightgray}{gray}{.80}

\begin{document}

\AtTextCenter{%
\makebox(0,0)[c]{\resizebox{\textwidth}{!}{%
\rotatebox{45}{\textsf{\textbf{\color{lightgray}DRAFT}}}}}
}
}

\end{document}
