New Techniques-Progressive Challenge

I have been taking part in a few of the challenges at GDS. Today I have been working on the progreesve scrap. Each week we get another step to do, we have no idea what the next steps will be so have to make sure we leave space for whatever might be coming.
posting the link in case you fancy having a go.

Step One:
1. This month you'll need to find 2 winter theme pages. The top should be a light colour with a delicate pattern and should take up 3/4 of the page, leaving a 1/4 for the bottom paper to show on either top, bottom, left or right. The bottom paper should be a darker paper with or without a light pattern to it.

I used 2 papers from Chill in the Air Created by Jill, a GDS Designer.
Step 2. 
2. Find 2 photos you want to use. One you will blend into the top paper, the other you'll frame and place on the top paper anywhere along the edge overlapping the bottom paper. You can center the photo so there are equal amounts covering both papers, or you can offset the photo. 

It has taken me a while to do this- I didnt want it to just be the shape of the photo, soften and so on I wanted to make it look as though I had used a mask.
i also wanted it to really blend so it was hard to know which was photo and which was paper. The paper has the snow on it so the bits that dont are the photo. the second photo in the frame is a similar one taken a bit further along and lets you see what i have "taken " out" of the photo. it will be another week before I get step 3 but will try and add it onto here,
