Hello Sweet Friends!

We are back with another Blog Hop, Link-Up, Texture Sharing Party!!

Man, oh man... you guys are AMAZING!!  I can not wait to see what you all have to share today!

In honor of sharing.... I put together a video tutorial...walking you thru the editing process on the image above. I hope it inspires you to play and create!

Wanna try the process on one of your own images? Click HERE to download a low-res version of the 'empty page' texture from The Studio Collection.  It's one of my FAVS.

Okay, so today, please share your challenge images. The link up will remain open until Saturday at there's lots of time to add your link. :)

IMPORTANT: If you missed the challenge details for this weeks link up, click HERE to get the scoop.  

If you have any Texture Tuesday questions....wondering what this is all about...  Click HERE for further info.

Grab a button and spread the texture love....  if you wish.  


won't you join us?

I know you all LOVE a challenge....but please forgive me.... I do not have a very original challenge for next week. (I'm swamped with tax stuff this week...and before you scream OH NO, Kim..... It's okay...In Canada we have til the 30th of April to file...) Ugh....

Here's next week's challenge....  Please use at least one layer of our new freebie... 'serendipity'..... If you are new to my site, simply join the Texture Lovin' List and you will receive the download link to serendipity, along with a few other textures directly to your inbox.


I think that covers it......

Thanks bunches and beyond!!  

Go forth and Link-Up sweet friends.....


Check out my upcoming classes.

Serendipity is one of my very favorite words and your texture looks so yummy. I'm can't wait to play! All the best with your tax preparations. I'm delighted that I will be getting a healthy return which will fund my trip to Italy!

I have been following your site for only a couple of months now just trying to learn about textures. You have beautiful work! It is very inspiring. I took the plunge today and entered my first Texture Tuesday. Thank you for the opportunity to participate and for sharing your creativity and knowledge. I have learned so many new things just from visiting your site.

Hi Kim

I've been having so much fun with your textures. For some reason I was having a hard time finding a shot I really loved the mix of Sweet Treat and Silence then BOOM I got it and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Thank you for being so kind and sharing. LOVE iT!
