You'd Be Surprised texture

You'd Be Surprised texture: At first glance the texture "Posted On The Bottom" is dark, grungy and down right ugly. Don't let the darkness fool you, it has a wonderful ability to
bring out and enhance contrast and details in images if used right. Two examples below show the before and after effects by just selecting a supporting layer mode within Photoshop.

Roll Cursor over image to view rollover effect:

TeaTime: "Pictured Above" I applied the "You'd Be Surprised texture,then set the "Layer Mode" to "Overlay" and the opacity at at 100%.

Bubbles: "Pictured Below" I applied the "You'd Be Surprised texture,then set the "Layer Mode" to "Soft Light" and the opacity at at 100%.

This is "You'd Be Surprised" the texture used in the examples.

Updated Terms of Use


No drastic measures are taken, especially after my bouts with others pilfering.

I’ve recently gotten quite a few of e-mails asking about my terms of use, so I thought I would update the rules and in the process make them clearer to everyone.

At least I hope they’re clearer, if anyone has a question, just click on the contact tab and shoot me your message and I’ll get back with you as soon as possible.

I Dearly Appreciate Your Support


Well the drama that transpired has come to a peaceful end.  It seems the owner of Tricia Curtis Designs contacted me and announced how sorry she was and agreed to take down my property and compensate me money owed from sales made.  She asked me to please take down my post, and after thinking hard about it and checking my PayPal account for a new transaction, I decided to oblige her wishes.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your responses and caring comments over this matter, you guys deserve a big hug and have my heartfelt and undying gratitude.  You guys ROCK!

So Glad to be back

Sorry for the long absence, but again life got in the way.   Doesn't it always?  I wish I could say I've been away on an extended vacation, full of tropical sun and blissful romance.  Not the case, unfortunately!  Seems we've had to take Watson to the vet twice in the last two weeks, seems Watson likes to put any little thing in his mouth to chew and eat, including, rocks,dandelions,twigs, not to mention an occasional doggy turd, ewwwwwwwwww!  Since he wasn't pottying as usual, fear that he may have a case of bowel obstruction from all the absurd oddities in his path.  The vet took some x-rays and checked a stool sample.  Happily the x-rays looked okay but his stool sample showed signs of too much bacteria, so pro-biotics was dispensed along with two other prescriptions to take.  So in all I've learned I have a dog who thinks he's a vacuum cleaner and veterinarians aren't cheap!  The last two weeks have left me and my creativity at odds and unwilling to play well together, so I'm trying to get back in the groove and start posting again.

Funky Texture Set contains nine various textures measuring 2400 X 1800 pixels each and worn vignette effects.  As always, hope they may be of some small use to you.
