    Can you come teach me how to do all that? lol Great work Scott! I love the leather and water droplets. So cool! Seriously, can you come teach me? It could be a vacation. I know, who vacations in Illinois? lol :):):)

  • Thank you Sheryl. I use the freebie of Photoshop (Gimp) – using layers. (my roomie taught me how to do the layering part and then combining the layers into one image)
    Sure, I’ll come teach you anytime!!! LOL

    I have free photoshop and gimp and 3 other editing programs. I just don’t know how to use them and the tutorials are confusing. I really need someone to sit down with me and walk me through it so I can learn. I wish there were someone close by. :(:(:(

  • I ‘just’ learned how to add layers in Gimp. :))) (I use several other image programs that have their textures incorporated into them, so those are easy.)
