A tutorial by Paint the Moon Photography showing the basics of texture application in Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements).
Please excuse the pause in the middle (right around where I create the layer mask) and the little girl coughing in the background ... I have a very sick little angel right now and I think this version was about take twelve, trying to get through it with no interruptions or background kiddie noises. In addition, being about 8 months pregnant, I tend to get out of breath easily and by the end I was practically gasping for air. LOL! I'm a mommy before all else, so hopefully you'll accept my little tutorial here with the hiccups and all. :)
