Wow, Pam, your work is great!!!! I love what you're doing!
Thank you Mallory! This one was fun :)
Beautiful! If I ever go beyond lesson one I may learn to make my own texture layers too.
Maggie, it's really simple - you can just scan in your own painting, or in this case, I took 3 or 4 photos and blended them together until I came up with something interesting, then just saved it as a big .jpg to use as a texture layer. I want to get out my paints and mixed media supplies and make really good ones soon. I've been playing around at making my own brushes too. oh, and look here: http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/index.cfm - you can download all kinds of public property images to use as textures or to make into brushes, or to use as collage material!
