Sunday Sampler August 7

Be sure to read all the way through today’s post –
there’s lots of good info, sales ending today and this week,

and a Freebie from Rosie’s Designs!

Today’s Sunday Sampler is one of the textures I created for the “Creating Your Own Textures Course”! The original was modified two ways with Topaz and JixiPix’s Grungetastic! Enjoy!

CREATING YOUR OWN TEXTURES COURSE
SALE ENDS TONIGHT!

THE COURSE IS COMPLETE!!!

The Course contains just shy of ELEVEN HOURS OF VIDEOS and over 160 PAGES OF NOTES & RESOURCES! In addition to the videos and notes, you receive well over 100 texture images, plus brushes and gradients!

Regular price $129
Save $20 with coupon code COURSE20
This is the lowest price that this course will ever be!!
ENDS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT EDT!!

Tomorrow, the price will increase to $179!
So, don’t wait!

If you haven’t joined the party, jump on in!! This will be the last time the course is offered for $109! The course is self-paced, and you may download the videos as well as all of the PDF instructions to use at any time.

You will learn how to create your own textures and then modify them for even more textures! Use Photoshop filters, brushes, Procreate on iPad, and your smartphone to create/photograph textures, and then modify or change those textures with plug-in software, brushes, phone apps, and by blending multiple textures, using gradient maps, changing color palettes, and much more. And you’ll learn LOTS of techniques to create textures by hand at home with free or inexpensive supplies – mostly things you’ll find around the house!

Modules 1-9 contain all of the projects for various ways to create and modify textures. Module 10 has resources and the replays of our two group chats. I’ll be scheduling another chat in September. We also have a private Facebook group just for course participants to share creations and ideas and ask questions.

And...in the future when I add new material or update any materials in the course, you will be able to access the new material all for the same low price (I already have some new ideas and techniques I want to add to the early modules)!
