    This is probably childsplay for a lot of you photoshop pro's out there, but
    I'm stumped.

    I want to blend two images together. The technique I'm using now, is on the
    top layer I'm using at large eraser to blend out the parts I want to show
    through. However this is destructive, I would like to have a seperate layer,
    that is a solid color with transparency in parts to control how the other
    layer shows through. Can this be done using some sort of layer mask? If
    someone could point me to a tutorial or give me some tips I'd appreciate it.

    Layer mask is the way to go. Here's one tutorial. Many others can be
    found by doing a Google search on Layer Mask.

    Layer masks are very easy once you get the hang of them and they are
    extremely useful.
