Subject of photos is Christmas. I have so many left to scrap from the holidays so I'll continue with that theme.

Task #14 - 3 word title of my layout is Christmas Day Sunset.

 

Task #15 – The blog tutorial that I would like to try is “Using Gradients in Photoshop...”

 

 

Task #16 – I tried the tutorial on a background paper and learned that I can create some interesting effects by tinkering with the opacity, size, and scale of the gradients.

When I joined this challenge mid month, I really had no expectation of accomplishing much. Considering that I'd never even posted a comment in the forum or a layout to the gallery before, I'm amazed at how much I've learned and how much I actually did. Thank you for all the supporting comments, It's been my pleasure to participate.
