Hey Eva! I'm here with your critique so I'm just gonna break it down into the different technical aspects starting with your self-acknowledged weak point:
I personally don't think that blending is one of your weak points! Your background soft blending is very good and the only minor thing that I can pick out is just being careful of see-through ness and erasing overlay images over people (eg. lupita's elbow here+). Your hardcuts are also really good (esp. here+ and here+) but just make sure that your hardcuts aren't too jagged and that you're erasing all the background (eg. the small girl here near her leg has a small bit of background left and the hardcut is a bit too uh sharp? jagged? here+ and also the halo around lupita's arm here+)
All of your signatures have really great, creative composition and clear focal points! In your vertical banner, the two girls are quite similar in size so the focal point is being split. In this header+, lupita doesn't seem big enough compared to the rest of the campus and the two clock faces at the sides of the graphic are drawing attention away from the centre of the graphic (maybe try moving the left one closer to the middle to make it more balanced). Since you don't have many graphics in your gallery yet, try for some variety by making some Ci's, banners, big blends and putting more than 3 people on them! Also, I see that you like using stock (like me ) so challenge yourself to make some graphics with more abstract textures (lol I'm such a hypocrite)
I think the major issue that I'm seeing is oversaturation which can sometimes make your image quality look lower! The oranges and reds in this graphic+ are so oversaturated that they're starting to get a little pixelly. Also the greens here+ are a little too bright and same with the yellows and greens in this one+. The two graphics that I just mentioned also don't have very cohesive colouring. There's a lot of bright colours but not a general colour scheme compared to the soft pinks and purples here+ and the blue and oranges here+.
I love what you've been doing with your text, especially when you warp it a little bit int he quote here+ and the title here+ it makes it feel more integrated into the graphic (and love the colour choice for that vertical banner). I love the creativity of using big text and putting it on soft light here+. That being said, just watch out for colour choice here+ as the white stands out a bit too much and watch for readability in here+.
All in all, watch out for oversaturation and keep working towards cohesive colouring! And just remember to be careful and keep an eye out for mistakes during blending and readability/colour choice for your text! You're making some really amazing creative graphics so keep on at it Hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions!!
