Blend Your Photos Into Your Background Using the Gradient Tool

 

I love blending but never thought of using the gradient tool. I tried and it worked wonderfully! Be sure to add a blank layer for your gradient - I almost forgot that part!

Have fun with this technique and when you are finished, please post your completed layout in the

SG Blog Challenge Layout Gallery. I'll be waiting to see what you create! :)

 

Here's my layout: LUCK

So I know I haven't used this technique to blend a photo into a background, but I have used it on a layer mask to blend a duplicate layer of a photo into the original layer. Using gradients for blending is so much fun - thanks for the tutorial Jody and for the challenge Marilyn!
