It’s Old News – A Freebie

November 13, 2010

I’ve had several people ask me what I used to create the distressed look in the In the News sample page shown below.

The answer; a distressed background and two pieces of tape from the Rocky Shores page set.  You can download all three items here.

If you photos look too crisp and bright against the distressed background, try lowering their opacity to around 90% allowing some of the distressed background to show through.
