:: Abandoned Library Vintage Textures and Overlays ::


:: Abandoned Library Vintage Textures and Overlays ::

Well, I finally decided to take the plunge and attempt to make some of my own textures. Even though I have so much to learn, I feel like I have to take the first step towards processing that is 100% my own, I think trying things helps you to appreciate the work others put into their textures, their actions and their processing in general.

Using my collection of old books and tweaking them in Photoshop Elements I created this collection of Textures and Overlays, collectively called "Abandoned Library".

I hope that you can use some of these textures and overlays :) 

just click on the photos below to see the full size, right click and save and use. no need to link back here, and free to use in any way you can, I only ask that you not try to sell them, as they are, as your own work.

Thanks.
