Exercise

Let's do some more experimenting with layers. First, click the background color swatch in the toolbox and choose a medium-light color for a background. Then create a new document. Be sure to choose the Background Color from the Background pop-up menu. Choose a contrasting foreground color, make a new layer, and use a medium brush to write the number 1. Add layers, with a number on each, until you have about 10. Then, starting with the first one, apply different blending modes. Try changing the transparency of a layer. Move the number 5 to the upper-left corner of the screen. Merge Layers 2 and 3. Play around until you understand how the layers are working.
