Feathering for figure-ground organization

In the article "Making a Meaningful Map" from the Fall 2011 ArcNews, the authors illustrate the use of a feathering blend to achieve figure-ground organization (see Figure 5D in the article). This looks like an excellent technique. Is there a specific tool or technique in ArcMap (especially ArcView/basic license) that will accomplish this?


Mapping Center Answer:

The description of how to do this is in the Mapping Center blog entry titled Figure-Ground: Feathering.
