    ooh Maggie, this is beautiful and a great blend of texture colour, well done on your first attempt, and hope I was making sense via mobile message! lol

  • Thanks, Sarah! You made perfect sense, and thank you for all your help and advice. I really wanted to have a go at this because I’ve seen so many beautiful creations with textures. I haven’t tried the layer mask yet though! And hey, I’ve figured out how to do links!! :o))

    nice one Maggie, I kept losing network connection as I was typing on the phone. Must have looked highly amusing to anyone watching me waving my phone about trying to pick up enough signal to press send! LOL
