New Blendable Builders and Freebie

So just what is a “blendable?” 

A blendable is a graphic or set of graphics that you blend into your papers to create a unique look.  You can also include them behind photos or clusters to add interest to your digital scrapbook pages. 

Some digital scrapbooking kits or collections will include “blendables” either in a kit, or as an extra pack in a Collection.  But if you are working with a kit that doesn’t have “blendables,” what do you do?  Change your idea and do something else?  

Well, creating your OWN blendables has never been easier with my new Blendable Builders. This collection includes 3 sets of vintage graphics, 1 set of vintage letters, and 1 set of vintage text.  Each element is perfect to use as a stand-alone graphic, but the packs were designed to mix and match, so you can create you own blendables in a snap!

It’s super simple and fast! Decide which elements you want to use and place each one on its own layer inside one document. Apply a mask to each element. (How to use a Mask in Photoshop). Then have fun brushing away parts of the elements you don’t want. It’s that simple!

Here is a example for you, created by msbrad.  She used one of the Blendable Builder Letters (a) and a graphic from Blendable Builder Vintage Graphics 01 (b), to help her create this absolutely stunning page.

Here’s a look at the new Collection, followed by a freebie for you!

Enjoy introductory savings now through April 18th.

Here’s a freebie sampler for you.  I have provided it in PSD format, so you can see exactly what I did to get the end result.

When you open the PSD file, you will see all of the layers I used. 

Right click on the Mask and choose Disable Layer Mask to reveal the original graphic, with no adjustments made to it. Choose Delete Layer Mask to reveal the original graphic, then apply your own mask and create your own blendable.

Here is mine.

    After watching the summit I was intrigued by your blendables. I did a photo blend into the background a year or more ago because I had seen it in other layouts and liked it. I worked on trying to figure out how to do it and was pleased with my results. I got your Spring A Ling Kit which contains some and have been playing with them and have found this is so much more fun than what I did. Thank you so much for the freebie too.
