TUTORIAL - Using Mishmashed Edges

Hi Everyone!

I had a request for a little tutorial on how to use my Mishmashed Edges!
(this tutorial was created using PS CS5 but can be applied to PSE)

There are so many things you can do with them using my new

1 (and most important) -  Always start with the background paper you want to use.
(of course you can always switch it out at any time)
2 - Drag one of the Mishmashed Edges on top and change the Blend Mode. 
If I'm using just the edge itself, these are my 2 favorites, Overlay & Soft Light:
Here's a paper with one of the Mishmashed Edges using the Overlay Blend Mode
 Same edge but the blend mode is now Soft Light
It all depends on what effect you want to achieve.
You can even play with the opacity as well.
The key is just to experiment with different blending modes!

3. Another way to use these is to drag another paper on top and clip it to the edge
*(Ctrl + Alt + G or Command + Alt + G)
Again….play with different paper combinations!
(there's no wrong way to use these!)

4. You can also live on the edge and combine 2 or more of the Mishmashed Edges together,
merge them and then clip a paper to it for a bolder look!
Or just clip papers to each edge layer!
Cool right?

5.  Mishmashed Edges can also be used be used to frame photos!
Just resize the edge to fit your picture and clip a paper to it or change the blend mode!

Here are a few example layouts from my Creative Team
I hope this little tutorial has helped you to become more comfortable with my Mishmashed Edges!
 As always...if you have any questions...don't hesitate to email me HERE 

Here are a few more samples using my Mishmashed Edges 1 and a few other Kits you can find
in my PBP Store
One last little tip:
Using the concept of "clipping"...
(I have an asterisk by it in Step 3)
This is the same thing you can do with any of my BlendIts & Mask products!
(you can even clip photos to them!)

The key to all of this is just to have fun and don't be afraid to experiment!

Have a fabulous day!
