    Grunge Border

    This is part 2 of a 2 part tutorial. It is suggested that you first read the 5-Step Grunge Background tutorial before you proceed. In this tutorial we will pick up with the 5-step grunge background tutorial left off and add a border to our piece.
    Note: To complete this tutorial you will need to download the displace_map.psd file available for free download here.

    Step 1.)
    Open an existing document here l'm working with the background that l had created in the grunge background tutorial. Create a new layer on top of all other layers, and make a selection like so:
