Grungy Background

I'm so excited! I'm taking a digital workshop for photoshop, and I'm learning all kinds of stuff. This is one little sample of what I can do. It's a neat grungy background. I'm only about half way through the class, but so far I learned how to use the clone tool. It is such a useful tool! There is no way I would have learned to use this tool without the help of this class. This is the second class that I have taken with Gail over at creative workshops. If you want to learn about Photoshop you need to check her out here. I have Photoshop Elements which she works in as well......either Photoshop or an elements version is OK.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Stay warm!


  1. Love the colour choices in this Charlie!!!

    Hope you stay warm this's cold here and it's been snowing very lightly...just a dusting really. I'm off to get my hair coloured and cut...I felt like I needed a winter pick me up!!! :)

  2. wow wow wow!!! that looks way cool!!! crap! i need to learn photoshop one of these days ...

  3. I loved Gail's classes!! I am so glad you are enjoying them too!


  4. That's such a cool effect! I've heard alot of wonderful things about Gail's classes although I've never had the opportunity to take one myself. Enjoy your discovering and playing!

  5. This is beautiful, Charlie! I love the mixture of colors. I am off to check out her tutorial. I have been wanting to learn how to use photoshop, so I could justify buying it. When I make a few sales, I am going to buy the elements version. It will be so nice to use.
    Have a lovely weekend,

  6. This is so cool! I'm a little jealous, as I've always wanted to get photoshop; maybe I should ask for it for my b-day?
    Please keep sharing what you're learning!

  7. I have no idea how long it took you to make such a lovely photo, come by and take a look at my photos, really similiar, but lucky me, I found the real I do need to take another class from Gail. Which ones have you taken? I think I took the brush one, I'd like to take the layer one now.
