Living and playing in Texture Town

I am very excited to be taking another online class with Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen. Their classes are amazing! Texture Town is right up my alley. I am drawn to texture in old buildings, nature and, of course, art! It's part of why I love exploring mixed media so much.

I took my camera for a walk the other day and found MANY wonderful texture examples. Here is a sampling of what I found - please click to enlarge.

By the way, I discovered Picasa's Mac software for creating collages. Brilliant!!! It is so quick and easy. (I spent over an hour creating another photo collage in Photoshop last week.)
