Talking Aug 2011 - Creative Techniques Challenge - MORE BLENDING

I am a bit late!!!! sorry girls!!!! as you know I am on generator power at home and our deep cell batteries have gone kaput! so we only have power when the generator is on and DH is working away this week, so very early morning starts and late finishes! poor thing comes home, turns the generator on for about an hour, turns it off, then goes to bed!!! !!!! soooooooo, I will try to get a challenge posted today while I am at work if I can!!! If not today, definitely tomorrow!!

OKAY! I am back, finally!!!

NOW, this month we are mainly going to be working on more BLENDING techniques but also incorporating some erasing work as well.

It might also be handy to go back to these two links to see the original work we did with blending and erasing.
Nov 2010 - Erasing
April 2010 - Blending

I want to cover these two areas this month because........... for the next challenge .......I am planning a challenge that will run over September and October!!! I can't tell you too much yet, but it is going to be BIG and lots of fun! and with a couple of guests!!!!! !! I know I know, I can be a tease sometimes!!!! So you will have to stayed tuned!!!

Okay, back this month.

Blending/erasing can be used on photos, elements, papers.... well just about everything. For this month's challenge we will be doing the three things I just mentioned. The different blending modes really give you a lot of room for creativity while erasing parts of an item using a variety of opacity levels will also help you blend things together.

This the type of page we are going to be ending up with this month, so follow the tutorial below and by all means use your own pics and papers etc.

Still with me???? Credits are in the gallery BTW!


- Your page needs to have at least 3 papers, 2 photos and 4 (or more) elements and/or overlays blended together
- Scrap about anything you like
- You need to use at least 80% of Oscraps designer products - check out their FREEBIES!! (note: Freebies from Oscrap members do not qualify)
- Make sure to load your LO into the Creative Techniques Challenge Gallery and then link your LO to this thread. (SEE IMPORTANT NOTE BELOW!)
- Challenge closes at midnight Thursday 31 August 2011 (CST)


1. Once you post your LO in the CREATIVE TECHNIQUES CHALLENGE GALLERY and you need to link back to THIS CHALLENGE THREAD and pop in the LO too so we can all drool over it. (Don't know how to link a LO to a thread, then check this out: )
