Phun with Photoshop

A little experimenting in Photoshop this afternoon. I used a few different layers, some I created myself, and also a texture from here.

The first image is a picture of some tulips I bought at the market yesterday.  The one of cherry blossoms below was a happy accident… I forget what I was trying to do, but this wasn’t it. When it appeared on the screen I just hit “save as” and kept it!

And here’s one of a sweet dog I met recently.

I haven’t had time to really get in depth with Photoshop yet… I just go in and muck about, but I am starting to pick up a few tricks. More to come!
