Actually, not a Dead End at all …. This is my first attempt on combining a textured background into my image. I have to say, I am pleased with the result. Many thanks to Joni and Karl Williams who have inspired me with their fantastic work, and that answered a few questions I had before attempting to use this technique myself!
