How to Blend Text

There are so many things that you can blend, you can also blend texts. Um, I have someplace someplace holder text here, it's not real text, but this is based off of a way out. I did, and if you change your blend modes on all of these different texts options, you can see overlay picks up the color underneath it, but it kind of disappears, so if you have that problem, but you really like this effect, you can just duplicate your text and it will bring it back. Um, you can do all sorts of different blends with this screen isn't going to do much on white text color dodge. All of these are lighter. Soft light is going to give you the same kind of effect as overlay on lee even more subtle. So I think that blend mills a really something that if you haven't been playing with them it's now is the time. They're fun and they can really change the way that you scrapbook.

I have recently discovered digital scrapbooking and have been using a great scrapbooking software that I downloaded on-line. There are limitations with the software that prompted me to look deeper for ideas. Traci's course was fantastic! I learned so much from her not only in scrapbooking layouts and using different elements in a page but my level of understanding of photoshop has improved dramatically. The presentation was easy to follow and broken into perfect chunks to go back and review the techniques. Thank you so much Traci for presenting this awesome course. I will look for more of your courses. Your scrapbooking is beautiful and inspiring!


I'm a photographer. I do a lot of graphic design for my business. I feel like I'm fairly knowledgeable. I saw this class being shown for free on Creative Live one day and it wasn't my first choice to watch, but was the best out of the list... I was wrong. This is a great class. I didn't expect to learn that much and I've been learning a lot! Great info!


This course was amazing. I learn some things I didn't know how to do. Traci is simple and straight forward in her teaching. Very easy to understand.
