Wink {closed}April 2010 - Creative Techniques Challenge - BLENDING!

YES! After MANY requests this month we are going to look at blending!

There are already a lot of fabulous tutorials on this subject and one of the best are from our own Amanda (Taylormade Designs) here at the O!!

Take a stroll through all of her tutorials, there are really some amazing ones there! CLICK HERE FOR AMANDA'S TUTORIALS

Our very own Helen also did a fantastic tutorial on blending a little while ago for a Rocking Girls challenge! HERE FOR HELEN'S TUTORIAL

Blending can be used in many different ways for a number of different things!! It is VERY versatile so please let us know in this thread how you use the blending technique!!

To get you started I have put together a small step by step tutorial. Remember its a guide, I am by no means an expert so like I keep saying, YOU HAVE TO KEEP EXPERIMENTING!!

Our designer sponsor for this one is Merkely Designs!!! Check out her wonderful shop HERE you may like to put something on your wishlist, ready to buy when you win the $5 gift coupon this month!!

Here is the finished LO. I used Merkee's lovely kit called Just Love to create the LO. Look in the next post for the directions on how I created it.

APRIL BLENDING CHALLENGE REQUIREMENTS:
1 Create a layout using one (or more) blending techniques
2 There is no specific theme for this challenge, your photos/blending will no doubt dictate what your page will be about
3 Layout will need to be scrapped with at least 80% of Oscrap goodies
4 Post your LO in the Creative Techniques Challenge gallery and leave a link in this thread by midnight (EST) Friday 30 April
5 HAVE FUN!!

blends - well - these are often my 'get out of jail free' to rescue a poor photo that I can't replace another way but also great fun

this started here:


actually I do like the opriginal - but 12 layers and 3 blending modes later


http://ozone.oscraps.com/gallery/sho...5&limit=recent

and 1 change of blending mode (changed to top layer from soft light to difference):


http://ozone.oscraps.com/gallery/sho...55047&cat=1193

thats why I love blending modes! (OK - I know I'm mad)
