dec16-ssclub-tutorial-header This month’s ScrapSimple Club comes with some fabulously grungy paper and overlay templates that you can mix and match to create a variety of incredible papers! In this tutorial, I’ll show you some easy ways to combine and color the templates.

I started each paper by using a solid color overlay (Blending mode: Overlay) for the all the base papers to the color paper template. You can use your favorite method to color the base papers.

Next, I added an overlay template over the base paper. Then, I simply changed the Blending mode of the overlay template layer. In this example, the Blending mode is set to Soft Light.
