    Looks great! Would you mind linking the PSD file - I'm a novice and have tried in the past to execute something like this without success.

    I get the spun metal ... but not the linen.

    But who knows?

    Maybe fabric textures will be the new high tech craze.

    Why, Thank you! :)

    Yes, of course - I'm uploading the .PSD to Megaupload as I type, but I don't think you'll learn much from it, as I merged most of the layers. I plan to make a YouTube tutorial later this evening, so PM me to remind me, and I'll send you a link when the video has uploaded.

    They also use linen behind Safari on the iPad2 when you drag past the boundary of a page.
