Me too. Fun to do...

Played a few actions picked at random from my Actions Palette and let PS do its thing while I watched tele for awhile. Nice to go into "auto pilot" mode and not have to think much.

Come to think of it I don't think much anyway!

Re: Spring Explosion

Thank you, Craig. I believe the texture was Charcoal on Paper and it is one of the default Photoshop textures. I can't remember, but it might come standard as a vertical, but I long ago saved out a horizontal version for use with landscape orientations.

Re: Spring Explosion

Had to try a watercolor experiment using the impressionist plugin.

I'm versatile Danny, whichever would do the most damage.

Some interesting takes on Craigs picture, won't pick any out by expressing my miserly discrimination, they all look good.
