How Do You Blend Two Papers Together?

I'm sure there's probably an easy way to do this but I can't for the life of me work it out - please could someone enlighten me?

For the layer mask, select your top layer in the layer palette, and at the bottom you'll find a small button that is a circle in a box. Once you click that a white box will open up next to the thumbnail of your selected layer.
Go to the tool bar and select the brush tool. Choose a soft round brush and make it fairly large, I usually go 400-800px. Change the opacity to about 40%. At the bottom of the tool bar you'll see black and white pages stacked one on top of the other (foreground and background colors). Make sure you have the black one selected as foreground. Then back to your layer palette, click on the white mask of the layer you have selected. You'll know you have the mask because there will be a line around the white box. Then you can just use the brush to paint over the edges. You have to play a little to get a feel for how big a brush to use and the opacity you need for each particular project. If you make a mistake, easy to fix, just select white as foreground and go over that area.
The eraser brush is very similar, but harder to correct if you make a mistake and you don't do it on a mask, but directly on the layer. Select eraser tool, soft round, fairly large, and reduce opacity.
Hope that helps. If you are using a program that's different, let us know and hopefully someone familiar with what you are using can help.
If you have more questions, or having problems with this, don't hesitate to ask. The more specific you are in where the problem is and what software you are using helps us help you. Good luck, learning to do this opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
