The Artists Edge

Do you have a studio, a craft closet, or containers stuffed under a bed full of art and craft supplies?  I will admit, I have all three! I am generally a tidy, organized person but my craft closet is full!  I only have a narrow path to walk in there.  I still have art supplies from when I was a teenager.  You just never know when you might use them again!  Do you have a similar problem? How do you manage all your creative tools?

Titled: The Artist's Edge

    Give your images an Edge!                                                
  1. Add a splash of light- create a new layer, swipe the linear gradient tool, blend on overlay, and keep the opacity between 90-100%
  2. Dull the color - blend the Whisper texture on hue at full opacity
  3. Tack on the Bubble Gum Grunge texture, blend on linear burn,  and slide down the opacity to 75%
