Graditude – 5 Days of Give Aways… The Winners Announced

single daisy copy

Happiest Friday.

Okay bare with me my friends.  I have a lot to cover in this post…

First of all, it’s Friday… and I have a totally cool texture for you today!  I am so loving this one. I used it on my sweet daisy above. 

Texture Lovin’ List members, I will send you the download link in just a bit.  If you are not on my list, feel free to sign up HERE.  Once you sign up, I will send you the download link…

Here’s today’s sweet sweet texture…  Created from the sheet of cardboard I had lying over my painting workspace.  I took a look at it today and fell madly in love.  So that’s how I began creating this particular texture.  I had to add a little more paint and grunge…but the base was made from months of  spills and spatters… scratches and drips. :)

Kim -- Your energy amazes and inspires me! Despite what appears to be an incredibly full life, you take time to spread your knowledge so generously in so many directions.
