Textures

If you don' already know... I like the old grungy look... and textures really make a photo look that way... Especially if you use old film textures, or coffee stains, or scratchy grunge textures. I found a few old textile textures, too! So much fun! You have to be careful on portraits? They have to be pretty subtle on a pretty face... I've used textures before but I've never layered them... Don't they look awesome

OH! I did photo masks too! You clip your photo to a mask and get these fun textured edges.

Michelle;
These are gorgeous effects you have produced for your pictures! Wow. My favorite is the last one. I would love to learn how to do this.

Hi! I come via the photo editing class. I saw your signature with the Scripture and the little bird and loved it! Did you make that yourself, and if so, is it difficult for a not so computer saavy person to make? I would love to post one just like it on my blog. Thank you!

BTW, your blog is gorgeous! And that photo of the Cape Coy Beach is breathtaking. Did you alter the photo or is it straight out of camera. I ♥ it!

Those are cool! I especially like the last one with the peonies. It's amazing that all the times I've been to Boise in my life (my Mom's family farm is 90 minutes from Boise just across into Oregon), I've rarely gotten off the freeway and certainly never seen it from Table Rock. Cool!
