Awdrey M. Hamilton August 18, 2010

I love this soo much! I would love to know briefly what you used. I have yet been able to master getting that rough sketchy edge around a photo. Great Work! #8845883

Patti Coblentz August 18, 2010

Hi Awdrey...thanks :)
There are methods within photoshop that I don't know yet..this was done in Nik Color Efex using the vignette filter. If you do not have any of the Nik plug ins you should definitely look into them...run a few trial programs...the best! Also Viveza! #8845980
