Blending Modes are the ‘fairy dust’ of digital artistry and scrapbooking.

They sprinkle magic into your layouts through the use of light and color creating depth and texture.

And there are a number of little secrets to using them successfully.

I’ve taught a number of workshops that encourage you to experiment with Blending Modes.

But if you’re looking for more specifics and guidance on exactly how to use these power tools, then this workshop is for YOU.

Blending Modes Study (Pop-Up) is a LIVE workshop for photo enthusiasts, scrapbookers and digital artists looking for a more step-by-step approach to wielding the the power of Blending Modes in Adobe Photoshop or Elements.

The content of this course will be delivered in ONE 90 minute LIVE online session in Photoshop Elements on Tuesday, 22 November 2016 at 5 pm MST.

That’s just ONE week away, and so earns the prestigious ‘Pop-Up’ title.

In the Blending Modes Study you will learn:

  • Which Blending Modes are most useful to you as a digital artist or scrapbooker.
  • How Blending Modes work with your photos and DigitalART supplies.
  • What the properties of light, dark and color have to do with Blending Modes.
  • How to establish your best Blending Mode candidate ‘right off the bat’.

This workshop is full of examples and demonstrations. 

We’ll be looking at lots of different types of photos with a variety of artsy ArtPlay Palette papers designed to deepen your understanding of Blending Modes and instill confidence in their usage.

The aim is to show you how and why different photos react with these background  when different Blending Modes are applied so that you can speed up your process and get it right most of the time.
