At long last.......
I've been so involved with my Photoshop class that I've had little time to do any art.  However, I finally have some digitally altered photos to show.
I created a brush from a photo of pine needles and used poster edges on this photo.

This was one of our exercises to play with adjustment layers, hue and saturation, use a custom made brush together with a grunge texture frame.

I used bumped up saturation here and posterized, then layered one of my art backgrounds and lowered the opacity to blend the two, added a frame and some text.  I like the graphic nature of the poster edge filter.
So now I have to make a bunch of brushes so I can remember how to do them and how to save them, etc.
