March Blog Challenge – Using the Gradient Tool

Hi everyone – Jennifer here welcoming you to the March Etc by Danyale Blog Challenge!

I am so excited that it is March and that spring should be finally coming! I always have so much energy as the days get longer and warmer. It is the perfect time to learn new things!

This month the technique is a new one for me, it is to get some use out of that gradient tool. I know I have heard of this tool, but never really used it on my layouts. I searched some tutorials on the web, and I was blown away by how much you can do with this little tool! You can blend photos together, blend a photo to a paper, and even blend a photo from color to black and white.  Always type in your program when searching for tutorials for specific details.

I used Danyale’s March BYOC – Simple Life Kit for this challenge. This collection just seemed to work so well with my photo.

Here is my layout. Notice how the foliage in the upper left corner is still colored. I chose to blend my photo into black and white to keep some of my foliage in color, but then most of the rest of my picture in color.
