Artsy Scrapbooking Challenge: Overlays

Good morning everybody, I hope you are all ready for another artsy challenge. This month I decided to challenge you to use overlays. I love how they enable you to change your background or photo in such an artsy way. As always, Katie has provided a very cute freebie for you to use, you can grab it here. It will be good until the end of the month. In addition I have a few examples that will hopefully inspire you.

First up is Jana, who used the overlay to give her blended photo an additional flair. That woman knows how to create drama on a page! 🙂
