Doorways - First Try

This was my first go at the Doorways challenge Kate and I are doing. It's such a great theme with so many ways to go. No pun attended! I did this long enough ago that I don't recall if I had any learning breakthroughs while I was doing it. But while I was trying to explain layer masks to Kate over the phone, I realized how they get used with adjustment layers. I didn't go back and change this collage because I liked how grungy it turned out, but I'll definitely use that knowledge in the future. The grunginess occurs when an adjustment layer filters down and effects lower layers that you had no intention of effecting.
Kate keeps saying that she will just finish up and post her projects as if there were gobs more to do to them but her doorways collage here:
seems just perfect to me.

Your theme especially resonates with me and the grunginess really works well. Usually I like the cleanliness of your pieces, but this one is really nice too.
