Hello there,Loving the post its an interesting design, one thing I'd suggest would be to add some texture and/or photoshop FX. Then again I realise photoshop is daunting in the beginning. Cant wait to see the future.Go here http://psd.tutsplus.com/ if you want to have a play with some decent FREE photoshop tutorials. Even if its just to play with some of the effects you can accomplish. :)
Thanks Stitch, have saved the link and will have a go!
