    .. textures are addictive… be warned.. but so much fun and they open up a whole new creative outlet….

  • LOL! So I believe! :o)) I’ve been looking for other ways to present my work and textures, I hope, will just be the start of something new and moving forward with my photography. This particular image, without the texture, would probably have languished in my hard drive untouched.

    lovely work Maggie, you have been warned starting with textures there’s no going back! LOL it’s a serious addiction and I’m craving for another texture every time I do another image. I keep trying to stop but the little (getting larger by the day) texture folder I have keeps whispering ‘’use me, use me, you know you want to’’! hahahahahaa

  • LOL! You are very good with the textures, Sarah. And thank you for your encouragement. Glad you like this pic, the textures really warmed it up and gave it a little extra something. :o)
