Last week, I decided it was time to replenish my supply of actions and textures. I'm a huge action user for Photoshop, but not so much a texture person. Mostly because they are just a lot of work; however, they do add a fun dynamic to the right photo. So I found some awesome deals through My Four Hens Photography, using some codes she hands out to those who like her Facebook page. (you can find her site here: http://myfourhensphotography.com/shop/ ) I got several action sets and some textures as well.
Then, my mother in law sent me a link to another site that was having a killer deal on some more textures, so I helped myself. The link to this site is here: http://kimklassen.com
Since I'm diving into textures more and more, I decided to properly educate myself on how to use, apply, and edit them with my photos. There are some wonderful tutorials here: http://florabellacollection.com/blog/
