The Blend modes in Over can help create amazing effects in your designs. From blending textures over images to creating a fun Duotone profile image, the possibilities are endless! (Coming soon to Android)

One of our favorite things to do with the Blend Tool is to create the effect of having a texture or image inside of text.

Follow the below steps to create the above effect: (Coming soon to Android)

  1. Once you've chosen your canvas size, using the Shape Tool or Basic Shapes in the Graphics Library, select your shape (this layer must be white) and place it on the canvas, making it big enough to cover your project.
  2. Create the second layer with your text or graphic that you'd like to be filled by your image (like the word "YAY" in the above) - this layer must be black.
  3. Finally, and for the fun bit, place your image or graphic as the third layer and put this layer on blend mode "screen" or "lighten" and voila - magic! ✨ 

Enjoy exploring and creating with the Blend Tool!
