    Good lord Nadine, my apologies, please forgive me. Trish had posted a thumbnail before yours on my activity feed and I was obviously still stuck on her name. I knew this was yours!

  • easily done! but I was taking it as a huge compliment! no worries, marion – good to see you again

    Well I think you are doing a great job with layers – I haven’t started on that route yet – need the time to get to grips with it. Judging by this though it is time to make the time:)

  • what a lovely thing to say! I am truly touched, rose. (pssst…it’s actually quite easy! the hardest thing is deciding what two images will go together well but putting them together is a doddle!) I’ll look forward to seeing your first texture post soon!
