Let’s Blend Challenge

Hello and Happy April! The desert here in Arizona is in full bloom and we are having lovely weather. Photos of our lantana was my inspiration for this month’s challenge. I enjoy creating a page where the photo runs horizontally across the page. Katie has many masks that make that process easy.

For this page, I just clipped my photo to the mask (included in the freebie) and went from there. To make the flowers pop a bit, duplicate the photo, run the Bas Relief filter, change it  to soft light, add a layer mask filled with black and paint back in the areas you want to stand out. I then just scrolled through some of the Blendable Layered Templates and chose different brushes to finish up the page.

Products used in addition to the freebie: Blendable Layers 12 Base Layer, Artsy Aztec Value Pack, Vintage Blendable  Palettes 8

Katie has generously provided a freebie pack to help jumpstart your creativity. Also, remember to post your pages in the Let’s Blend Challenge Gallery, and add your page to the April 2021 Challenges Sign-in Thread in the forums to earn great shopping rewards.

Looking forward to seeing all of your pages in the Gallery. Have fun!
