Thank you Michele. This lab is particularly good for me in learning the two little boxes of color (foreground/background) in the Materials palette. Because you have two colors going at once I learned when to use the right click or left click of my mouse and which box that was for, and locking the transparency was also new to me. Now I know what that little lock is for in the Layers palette. I have a thick head and it takes awhile to drill stuff into it; these labs are fabulous for focusing on one technique at one time. Also great if you only a small amount of time to play with PSP, these are short and you get the pay off of learning/creating something in that short time.
