That's great! Experimenting is the best way to learn!
Hopefully you will not mind a critique/suggestion... the image you are using as the background is very colorful and contrasty (i.e. there are a lot of dark colors and light colors). This makes it hard for any font color at all too stand out as it should, making the text difficult to read. Might I suggest either darkening the image and making all the fonts brighter, or brightening the image (lowering the contrast) and making the fonts darker. It may drastically change the look of the page but it should make it easier to read.
Cool space you have there Samantha. It's such a cool looking picture though, maybe it could be made smaller and sit against a more suitable background, and made to move along with the text and other stuff so the text is never over it.
