February Blog Challenge – Blended Photo Technique

Welcome to the February Etc by Danyale Blog Challenge!

I hope you are enjoying the new technique based challenges and are ready for another fun one! This month the technique to focus on is photo blending. I am in love with fabulous photo blending when I see it on layouts! I love the large photo that just fades into the background.

There are lots of ways to do a photo blend, you can adjust the blend mode for your photo, you can clip your photo to a mask that is already blended, or I chose to use the eraser tool and choose a brush that has some blended edges and set the opacity to 15 or 20% and carefully erase until the photo is blended into the background. There are so many ways to get creative with this, and I can’t wait to see everyone’s blended photos!

I used Danyale’s She Flew kit for this challenge. I love how the colors and elements work for my big photo!

I used a picture of my daughter from last year and kept it large. I just blended the edges and then did some element layering.


So on to the rules (which remain the same as last year)…

  • Scrap a layout where your photo uses the blended photo technique using any Etc by Danyale kit of your choice.
  • Remember, if you scrap with a new release the first week within its release, you will get an extra entry point. For example, Danyale has a new kit that releases on the 1st, you purchase that kit and scrap a layout with it posting it by the 8th and now you get two entries instead of one.
  • Upload your layout and post it here on the blog for us to gush over by midnight EST on Tuesday February 28th, 2017. We share this post in the TLP forum as a courtesy, but this is an Etc sponsored blog challenge and your page has to posted here in comments to count for the prize.

One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive a $10 coupon to Danyale’s store.

*** Last months winner is Michelle Hillam ***

Now get to work – I can’t wait to see what you create!
