The first one was done entirely in Photoshop. We were given a source photo to play with, so I sunk it behind some really big text, added a yellow background and a grunge texture, plus that cool date stamp (June 6 for Caralee's birthday), and saved it as a jpeg.

Then, I dropped the whole thing into that neat grunge frame created by Leslie Nicole of French Kiss Collections. Super fun!
This second photo started out as the key photographed against a white piece of poster board. I added a black chalkboard background and lightened it up, erased the texture from the key, the string, and the tag, making sure to keep all of the natural shadows. Then, I added the George Eastman quote in white text.

The assignment was to follow a tutorial on creating a chalkboard effect with text, so that it looks as though the text were written in chalk. Pretty cool, huh? And, fun too!
