How To Use Digital Scrapbook Templates With Blending Masks
If you are one of my regular customers, you have probably seen that I have a few Digital Scrapbook Templates with blending masks. The trend of using blended backgrounds on your digital scrapbook layouts have obviously come to stay. And these digital scrapbook templates with blending masks makes it super easy to create the look of a blended background on your pages. But some people struggle with them so I decided to create a little tutorial to show how you can use them.
Template Pack No 41 is a template pack that includes three digital scrapbook templates with blending masks.
This is the one that I’m going to use in this tutorial:

Here is how my layout turned out:
