    LOL I'm also glad to read that some of your CT is learning here too! at least I'm not the only one in the dark trying to figure out how you got from a to c!! They always say there are at least 3 ways to do the same thing, don't they.

    I'm not going to get a page posted by the deadline, but I'm sure learning an awful lot! Thanks for detailing your steps, Katie!

    It's funny... I always thought everyone did it like I did until I started having chats discussing blending and found out I worked a bit differently!

    Back in the day I used to use the clone tool to sample a photo and using a brush "stamp" it onto my page and then blend... that's why I call my masks "stamped blocks"

    wanted to add a old fashioned script too in the background - which fonts look the best in bendables. Do feel better.

    I think so Joanie, but I'm not sure.
    That's why I don't teach, I can't keep up with all the applications and versions. I taught for mac Academy in Chicago back in the days of Illustrator 88 and Photoshop v1.0 and things never stop changing!

    Wish I very quick enough to enter something in the gallery for a chance to win the $10 but I think it will take me longer than 20 minutes to absorb all that you have given us in methods, tips, etc. Thanks so much Katie.

    So Katie, what did you use as a mask for your snowy page in the gallery. Not looking forward to snow (what can I do, I was born here!), but I'd love to use the technique!
