Layer It Down

Hello all ya’ll creative minds!

Let’s dive into the world of layering with this month’s exciting challenge! Our theme for this month is “Layer it Down”, where we will be exploring the art of framing a photo with a beautifully blended background. The blendable layered templates provide  a fantastic starting point for this creative journey, offering a plethora of options for blending techniques and element choices.

As we delve into this challenge, I encourage you to experiment with different blending modes and opacity levels to create a seamless integration between your frame photo and background. Consider playing with textures, colors, and patterns to add depth and visual interest to your composition. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and push the boundaries of traditional layering techniques.

With each layer you add, think about the story you want to tell and the emotions you want to evoke in your viewers. Whether you’re aiming for a dreamy, ethereal look or a bold, dramatic statement, let your creativity run wild and see where it takes you.

So, grab your favorite photos and let’s get started on this layering adventure! Remember, there are no limits to what you can create when you layer it down. Have fun and happy layering!

Use any mask as a photo or you can mix it up with colors or patterns.  Here is the freebie provided by Katie.

Our creative team has once again provided us with great inspiration.
