It is June, summer is here, so no reason why you should not take part in this challenge. Every time I look in the gallery I am always amazed at how many different ways we use blend modes, transparency ,and all the other goodies in our software programs.
So I thought lets have a challenge ​, all about how we use blend modes and /or transparencies ;
Title is Blended summer , so that is nice and open , I chose to do mine with mostly flowers, but yours doesn't have to be. Anything summery will do .
The only rule is that you must use at least 2 different blend modes ( if you don't have a program where you have blend modes as a feature you can use faded papers or paint.
I have 2 different pages as examples just to show there are no right or wrong way of doing this.
The first is very rigid in the way it is build up, but there are both overlay, fading using a transparency tool, and a multiply.
The other is a merry mix of blends, gradient fills, overlays ,and a watercolour effect thrown in just for good measure.
Enjoy I can not wait to see your pages, and if you have a favourite way of doing something, please share, then we can all learn !

Ups. Sorry about that....... Blushing...... hopefully you all have a lot of lovely summer pics or kits that you haven't packed away for the winter yet. And it should give you a lovely warm glow to do this challenge too.
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
Thanks for letting us put up these challenges.

Neat challenge! I have a couple blend modes I use a lot, so I'm going to try to stretch it and use some new ones this time around!
