« happy june, texture sharing, list love ... and all that jazz.... | Main | second.gear the art of texture »

before and after.. tag love....

happiest Sunday....  and happy long weekend to my american friends.....

i was making some grungy backgrounds/textures today...
and decided to make some more tags while i was at it...
then i just had to stop and take a pic or 2....
thought i'd share a before and after using 2 textures form the baker's dozen plus 3.....
mouse over to see the before...

for this image i added
texture 'the wall'
texture 'grunged good'
added a warm brown gradient map set to soft light....
then did a levels adjustment... 


enjoy the rest of your weekend...
