I have attached a layout that I saw and loved...I like how the background paper is blended with the front paper...I have tried do this but it's not working so well..mine looks too harsh not soft looking like this picture..I use PSE 9.0

Did you try using different blending modes on your top paper? If you go through them you'll see the different effects they give. You can also lower the opacity on the top layer to soften it.

Shelley, you can send a PM to April for specifics on how she created the page.

Actually, that isn't my page.
Another thing that might help is to reduce the opacity of one of the papers. I'd have to see the product list for the page to get a better idea of what she did.

I would suggest trying one of Brandy Murry's background blenders... You can clip the different papers to each layer and they blend together beautifully... Her blender brushes are also amongst my faves... They make blending so easy!! I think this is what you are looking for, you can adjust the opacities later if need be :-) pm me if you need more info :-)

I agree with Jodi...so many great blending templates! I use them quite often! I like pulling my papers into the templates and then playing until I get the effect I want. Check these out:
