      When we all stay at my parents for Christmas it's funny that we don't often make it down to the beach - it's only a 3 minute drive! We tend to hang around the swimming pool instead - probably because it's less than a 3 minute walk! LOL!!

      This is a photo my sister took of her two girls - watching the waves and then off for a walk along the beach to find shells. I wanted to capture the warmth of the day and a hint of water - the sunshine and sky papers from the Sandbox collection were totally perfect!!

      Hi vbelabes!

      Thanks for asking!

      This is also in the blog post comments: It’s actually fairly easy. I created a new layer in Photoshop and added a rectangle shape approximately the same shape as my photo. I then positioned my photo layer above the new rectangle layer (in the layers window) and created a clipping mask. Then using a soft edge eraser slowly erased the edges of the highlighted rectangle until I was happy with the shape. (Erasing parts of the rectangle layer only, allows you to keep your photo intact so that you can move it around within the “clipping mask” if you want to.) I then merged the two layers into one. Changed the opacity to 45% and the blending mode to “Hard Light”.

      Or you can use a pre-made photo mask and then play around with the layer opacity and blending mode. Less steps, but you are restricted to the photo mask shape and design.

      Hope this all makes sense! Have fun playing!!

      Kylie, this is amazing. Your blending is incredible and your photo color match makes it gorgeous with the paper colors. Really stunning layout.
