The first Art of Blending class was a fantastic journey for my students and me! I was pleased at the progress made each week by my students, and they, in turn, were excited to share their artwork in the classroom gallery. The class hummed along as busy as a beehive in summer all the way through the 10 weeks of class.
A comment I heard fairly often from Art of Blending students went something like this: “I thought I knew a lot about Blend Modes, but this has blown me away!” It just goes to show that sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know until someone shows you.
In the original Art of Blending class, we had beginners all the way through advanced students, but the cool thing about Blend Modes is that you don’t have to be an expert in Photoshop or Elements to create amazing art.
Below are some examples of my students’ art. All these examples are from The Art of Blending, Part 1. Click on an image to see it in the gallery.
Linda Davis (lkdavis):
Joyce Schardt (jschardt), Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri: “This class has inspired me to complete the album of our trip to China which has been on hold for almost two years. I had hoped to learn a lot, but Linda has opened even more new doors of possibilities than I had ever imagined. I attribute any photoshop skills that I have learned over the years to Linda’s teachings.”
Judy Wagner (shorebirds):
DeAnne Rosen (drosegarden):
Luisa Kelly (ouisiekelly), Creative Team:
Mary Hankey (cheerio54), Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, Canada: “Linda’s class has been an eye-opener and has given me the opportunity to try things I never would have done otherwise. Her videos are so obviously well thought out, and I look forward to the new ones every week.”

While being part of a teacher-led class carries a certain amount of excitement, the advantage of a self-paced class is that you can take it entirely at your own speed and fit it into your schedule. And you can still share your art and pages in our regular gallery for everyone to enjoy.
To help you digest the class material (and to make it a little easier on your pocketbook), I’ve broken the original 10 lesson modules (almost 50 videos in all) into Part 1 and Part 2. Here’s where you can find out more about Art of Blending, Part 1: http://digitalscrapper.com/classes/the-art-of-blending/
