I've been playing with Photoshop today. Trying to see what will happen with my photos by adding textures and backgrounds. I am following a tutorial I found on DJ Pettitt's blog. I used a few of her backgrounds too.
This is my original photo that was taken in an old graveyard in Boston's North End.
Here is one effect I added for the background. I liked the way this looked when I was creating it, but I am not too sure about how it looks here. This was done with the overlay technique.
This was another effect and a different background which looks cool.
Here is one of my Santas with an added background. I love how this came out.
I hope to try a few more and print them for use in my journals.
