About This Class

Watercolor textures are the perfect addition to graphic design layouts, logos and typography to add a colorful handmade, crafted touch.

In this class, we’ll go step by step, creating watercolor textures from scratch, scanning them in, then color adjusting and removing their backgrounds in Photoshop so you can place them beautifully on any colored background. We’ll finish the class up by taking our textures one step further by creating seamless patterns with them and applying them to typography. A free resource pdf with every product mentioned is also included with the class.

Any professional version of Photoshop, CS3 or newer is required for this class.
