Beautiful Blending Video Tutorial

Have you ever wondered how to achieve a seamless blended photograph?
In this video I demonstrate how to blend photos with background papers to make beautiful digital paper and how to cover up the sharp edges using masks. My album, Scrapper's Guide Team Retreat, is full of blended pictures. It's one of my favorite scrapbooking techniques. I also used it to create most of the papers in the Seaside Vacation kit. So if you'd like to learn more about blending then join Scrapper's Guide Premier before the end of July!

Weathered Wood Video Tutorial

This month is all about summer. Even though it's winter where I live,  you wouldn't know it. Carl and I went to the beach yesterday and kids were swimming and frolicking about in shorts and T Shirts. It's just so warm.

In this lesson you'll learn how to create the look of distressed painted timber. It makes great digital paper. So join Premier now to download this and a heap of other goodies. The kit I've used in the video is by Eva Kipler who designed our whimsical July kit called Beach Bound.
