Playing with our NEW Overlays and Edges!

I often am asked how I make my pages shabby and apply the “grunge” factor to them. I showed you one way to use overlays in this tutorial back in December.

This week, I will show you how I took a paper from a  kit already in store, and took it to another level. My overlays are for Commercial AND Personal Use – so anyone can do this!

I grabbed a sweet paper from the Chapt. 4 – Defining Him Kit

I pulled in an brand *NEW* Grunge Overlay to show you how easy it is!

ON SALE 50% OFF through 7/13 –

( I specifically used etc_dan_grungedge4_1 )

I then placed the overlay layer on top of the already finished paper  > I then adjusted to a simple Darker Color > done!

Designers use these within layers to achieve many effects, but you can play with the blending modes to make this work in many ways. Use your imagination!

Until next time!
