The much anticipated AnnaBlendz No. 3 Blending With Brushes is now available in the aA Store and in this post, some of the AnnaTeam kindly share their layouts and feedback after reveiwing this latest addition to the AnnaBlendz series.
Joanie says: "I watched it 3 times. The video is great - I loved the fact that Anna zooms in and out, to give the viewer a better look when necessary and the quality of the video is excellent. The key purpose of the video is show just how versatile brushes are. I think it will be an eye opener for some newer users that don't really use brushes at all, and it will hopefully open a whole new world to them. The video addresses using various ways to modify a clipping mask and photos as well as incoporating the application of blending modes. AnnaBlendz 3 really take the scary out of being Artsy."
Tori says: "This AnnaBlendz couldn't have been more helpful or insightful. There were so many “Ah-Ha!” moments. Anna showcases so many different ways to use brushes in a creative and easy manner. Using the techniques taught in this AnnaBlendz, as well as using those taught in the previous ones, will truly take your artsy pages up a level - from good to amazing."
Judy says: "Even though I have been scrapping with Anna's brushes in the past I never realized how much more I could do by loading the brushes rather than simply using the png files. The ease and variety of effects which can be created was well worth the time it took to load the brush file. The other tip I learned was how to use the brushes to color an image."
Heather says: "Sigh. I watched AnnaBlendz No. 3 and it is amazing! I finally understand the versatility of .abr verses .png file formats. I absolutely loved it! If you have ever been unsure how to use brushes, then this is a must have. The video is easy to follow and yields amazing, artsy results. I don't think I will ever use the .png version of brushes again, and leaves me asking the question when the next one coming?"
Miki says: "Love the tutorial on using brushes. So easy to follow and understand! A great opportunity to learn more artsy techniques. Anna's brushes make it so easy to create your own clipping masks and modifying them to fit your photos demonstrating how they can be customized to highlight your photos, to make them shine."
Fran says: "For those of you who struggle with brushes and just don’t know what to do with them, this video is for you. I love how you can blend with brushes, soften edges and even use them as clipping masks. Anna takes you through the process of using the brushes in your blending and gives you some product to work with as well."
Kerstin says: "This tutorial is so awesome again. I didn't know that there are so many ways to use brushes. I especially I love the part where she shows you how to create a custom mask."
Ann says: "I use brushes mainly for all the watercolor techniques applied to my focal images in layouts. Anna's AnnaBendz videos give you a perfect opportunity for learning in a simple way and provides the best tricks and techniques for using her digital products. Your layouts will never be the same again after seeing AnnaBlendz video series."
