8 FREE textures :)...and some birds

  I recently came across some old photos that I reworked with texture and thought I would share them here. I also created a few new free textures....see below...



Northern Cardinal, my mother's driveway, East Greenwich, RI

Starlings on a telephone wire. Chatham, MA
And here are some free textures I created, feel free to download and use them in your photography or digital artwork! You can download them by clicking on them and opening in a new window below, or visiting my Flickr "textures" page here.  Textures are free and for use in your commercial or personal work...(no derivatives of my work, and not for sale as is...thanks!!)

I starting creating textures in Photoshop when I began using them from Flickr in a group that shares beautiful textures for use in digital creations...I always make sure to credit the original artist and have had countless hours of fun using these! I figured I could share them as well, and give back to this community that is so generous. My favorite Flickr textures group is Textures for Layers. I have also used various textures from Shana Rae of the wonderful Florabella brand. Her textures and actions are not free, but worth every penny! She is helpful and very talented! Her portraiture provides a lot of inspiration, and her blog is amazing. I highly recommend her actions, too- particularly the "Vintage" ones. They are my "go-to" actions for amazing, subtle effects!
Hope you like these....enjoy....and thanks so much for all your encouraging words...they really mean a lot! I know it's not easy these days to be able to find the time to visit/ comment on all the blogs we follow and enjoy reading...so those of you guys who read and leave me messages really make my day!  I do READ all of your blogs...I'm just lazy about commenting! lol. I am trying to be a better bloggy friend! Just learning now how to use my smart phone, so maybe that will help! :)   <3.... Mary

I have always looked at Shana Rae's textures but they're expensive and I'm not sure which ones to buy. I'll have another look at the Vintage set.

Mary, your images are always lovely : )
