Let’s Blend Challenge – Using Filters With Blended Images

Welcome to April’s Let’s Blend Challenge. Lately, I have been using various filters on my images to create more interesting layouts. This month, I thought we would work on blending two or more images together and then use a filter(s) from the filter gallery to add interest and depth.

The page I created below began with two images I took while we were in New York. First, I clipped both images to a rectangular mask and then duplicated the image I wanted to highlight to another more artsy mask. In order to add interest, I started playing with filters. By duplicating the top image that was clipped to the basic mask, I was able to apply different filters to each of them, changing the opacity and blend modes.

Products used: Katie Pertiet: Walden Solids Paper Pack, Edge Overlays No. 10, Book Edge Blend Layers No. 01, Stamped Blocks Brushes and Stamps No. 32, Dirt, Grit and Grids Brushes and Stamps No. 01,

I hope you have fun trying out various filters on your pages. Katie has provided a wonderful freebie to get your creativity started.

Remember to post your pages in the Mask Appeal Challenge Gallery and don’t forget when you use ALL DD products on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the April Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program. Have fun!
