    Welcome to the NBK Design Technique Challenge. This is my first challenge as NBK CT member and I'm really excited. I hope you'll join me and have fun!

    Double Exposure is something that I've always admired and wanted to learn; it turns out it is a lot easier than I thought.

    In this challenge you have to combine/blend two photos in order to create a double exposure effect on your page.

    @AnikA68 has made a wonderful video about Double Exposure and you can watch it here:


    Also this tutorial by @FarrahJobling from a previous MOC is really helpful:

    You may embellish your page as much as you wish, as long as the Double Exposure is visible. You may use stock photos.
    For my sample page I used the Art and Journal Collection.

    Thanks for this wonderful challenge, Cindy. I love your example layout!! Double exposure is so much fun to do - the results are spectacular - and best of all, it's NOT difficult. I'm looking forward to seeing some great pages.

    I don't remember what your program is. Does it have blending modes? You can follow the second tutorial I've linked.
    I'm sure you'll figure it out! Can't wait to see your page!

    Craft Artist. Yes it has blending modes - I could reproduce the effect but it will be more complicated. Also extracting sections from photos isn't easy. Standard scrapbooking is much simpler and quicker in Craft Artist, but some of the more artsy stuff gets tricky.

    Awesome double exposure effect! The frame looks so cool, and the cluster behind the photo adds a nice touch. Thank you for joining me in my challenge

    I had so much fun with this! The duck is over top of a photo of hydrangeas that I applied a Percolator phone app to.

    Well, I'm not sure if I like what I did here, but it is what it is. I combined an aerial view of Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota with a Chicago skyline view. So on the left, you have lavender & flowers, where on the right, you have more geometric designs.

    I combined two pictures that I took recently at a local boat basin.
