Hello and welcome to the first NBK Design challenge of 2019. I thought that I would keep this challenge fairly simple after all the buzz and excitment of MOC. What I would like you to do is change the look of your photo or your layout by adding a paper then changing the blending mode. Sometimes you need to unify the elements a little better on your page, or perhaps you would like to add more texture to your layout or change the overall color cast to your photo or page. Your challenge is to add a paper to your photo or layout and change the blend mode of the paper to achieve a different look to your page. If you would like to take this a step further, you can add a white layer to the top of your layout, then add one of NBK Designs styles to that layer. Simplify the layer, then change the blend mode. The possibilities are endless with this simple technique. Don't forget, that you can always mask out any areas where you don't want your effect to show. PLEASE POST BOTH VERSIONS OF YOUR PHOTO OR LAYOUT. Here is my layout before I added the overlays. Here is my layout after I added two additional layers using styles. I used the brand new BYOC Collection - Art Crush #12 to create my page. artCrush No12 by NBK-Design TLP Shop https://rebrand.ly/nbk-Crush12 YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLX6vyfKQ2WLVNDm1RK93wbgYDGf6GVedn NBK-DESIGN http://nbk-design.com/nbk-links/ RULES This challenge runs from February 4 to February 17 One lucky scrapper will be randomly chosen to win a $5 coupon to the NBK Design store.
