Experimenting With Grunge Edges & Textures and freebie

Check out Grunge It - BUNDLE {CU OK} by Jeanine DeOre at . The ease and simplicity of following the instructions below, and on Jeanine's blog, have left me pleasantly surprised after just 20 minutes of experimenting and creating in Photoshop Elements today. AND I feel like a wanna-be digital designer!

Jeanine De Ore at has all of her designer secrets available in one great stash...includes 2 Edge 4-Packs (8 total) and 2 Texture 4-Packs (8 total) and 2 suggestion/tip sheets. Great for designers and fun for personal use / scrapbook projects too!

After you see these pages below I created, you would never guess that I have never used textures or edges to create papers before. You would also never guess each one took me less than five minutes to figure out!
Check these out and then the link to a freebie will magically appear.
I made this:

By using a texture (the one on the bottom right) from
Grunge It- Textures 2 by Jeanine DeOre at

Step 1: Open a new 12x12 page with Background Color, then change it to a tan color (e9e2b8).

Step 2: Drag the texture layer on top of the tan layer. Click on the texture layer. Change the blending mode from Normal to Overlay (leaving opacity

at 100%).
Step 3: Right click on one of the layers and select flatten image. Then save your creation and use it on any page or project.

I told you that was simple. Since I am a visual person and learn better from pictures and diagrams, and not just books of written instructions, I found Jeanine's directions to be the easiest.

Next item I created using the texture on the bottom left from Grunge It- Textures 2 by Jeanine DeOre at

and then I added an edge to:

The patterned paper and all kits used by permission of Jeanine DeOre at
The patterned paper above is from Cirque Dimanche ~The Papers, by Jeanine at
and an edge from Grunge It Edges Vol 2.

The additional two papers were created by Betty Holland, using colors taken from the french patterned paper above.

Thanks for hanging out! Here is the freebie, as promised :
