Long Overdue Free Textures For You!

Hi Everyone - how are you?  Hope you had a great weekend.  A big "Thank You" going out to those of you who linked up to our last Photo Art Friday.  You are all presenting some amazing work!  All that hard work deserves a couple of new textures for future photo art projects, don't you think?  Well, here they are.  Enjoy!

First, a sweet, light-filled overlay with a touch of bokeh.  Don't forget that if you prefer not to have the text on the overlay appear in your image, you can remove it using a layer mask or your erasure tool.  I recommend the layer mask option because you can always gently correct any over-enthusiastic removal that took too much overlay away along with the text.

Next, a texture I think you will love.  Well ... I love it!  I noticed that Evelyn of Within My Focus used one of my Christmas textures a couple of times in the past few weeks because she likes the effect of the hanging berries.  That inspired me to take the berries off of the xmas-y background and put them on a background that can be used any time of year.  So Evelyn, thanks for the inspiration - this one is named for you - but I'm sure you won't mind if we all use it too!

If there is a texture design you need or have imagined, tell me about it and (if the idea inspires me too) I will see if I can design one for you.  While it will be designed based on your suggestions, it will be released as a free download for everyone.   No promises, mind you, but let me know what you have been wanting or what you would like to see more of, and if I use your suggestion I will name the texture in your honor

Have a wonderful week my lovelies!

P.S.  If you love textures, you still have a day or two to enter Jeanne's (Butterfly Tales) giveaway.  She is hosting a giveaway of three sets of my textures.  It's super easy to enter so don't miss out!
