CoffeeShop Valentine Textures!

Thank you so much for helping me choose a name for my newest portrait action. I was so entertained reading all of the great and sometimes hilarious suggestions. I obviously have very creative (and brilliant!) readers. I will be releasing that soon, so please keep an eye on my blog!




In the spirit of another holiday, I whipped up some Valentine textures. They are a bit grungy and not your typical "pretty" paper, but I think you will like them. Just open them in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or any program that you edit in and use them as textures, frames, or digital paper on photos, cards, or templates.

I used two free textures on these papers, Door Panel by Paul Grand also his Scratches Inverted (I love that texture!) and Painted Frame Texture by Irisb477 . They have other great free textures, so be sure to check them out and thank them for being so generous.

And thanks again for visiting my blog and leaving such great comments. I really appreciate it! I have tons of stuff on the horizon, so please keep on checking back, you never know what you might find here.
