I like experimenting with texture, but sometimes, I'm not sure I like the final product. It seems a fine line to walk between texture as enhancement and texture as distraction. It sure is fun, though!
There are great places to get free textures on line, including a Flickr group called "Textures For Layers" that I recently discovered. Members post their own textures that others are free to use (for personal use). It's a great way to get new ideas. I'm excited to see what everyone came up with for this week's theme!
