Thanks Rose,

I'm sure you'll do great once you start experimenting.

One limitation of AR (at present) is that you cannot move the "light" around which shines from the top left above the canvas, so you will not be able to get the same lighting effect you see on the references I used in the tutorial. With the new AR 3 just around the corner, this may change. That would be great.:D

You're off to a fabolous start Rose. Nicely done!

Lee, thanks for the kind words. Don't forget to experiment with overlay blend mode as well (or any of the others for that matter. After all, why use half the tools when you can try them all out?:D).
