Hi there – It’s Joanne with this month’s Let’s Blend Challenge. Dictionary Blendables, or any type of blended wording is so fun to use with your layouts. Many times, I will have a photo with a background I don’t want to delete, but I want to make it not so noticeable. Placing blendable wording helps soften the background. On this page I used them in a few places. Clipping and sizing it over a photo is a great way to add interest and move the eye away from a distracting background. Here, I did just that, changed the blend mode to multiply and then added a mask and brushed out the areas I didn’t want to show. I also clipped it to the golden brushwork and reduced the opacity. The options are endless, so experiment and see how you like using this technique best.
