Why Not Wednesday - A Fab New Freebie Texture to Try


mouse over to see the before

Hello my friends,

'Why not Wednesday?'
I recently read this on facebook. I'm so outta the loop. I had never heard it before. 'smile'....
Anyhow, let's just say, their idea of 'Why not Wednesday?' was much different than mine. 

I could not wait to share my latest texture with you all! This one is HOT off the press. I just finished it up before dinner. Anyhow, I thought...what the heck....'Why not Wednesday?'

So with that said...allow me to introduce 'The Ladder'. 

You would not believe the layers of paint, paper, ink, mediums, stamps, tape..... that went into making this little number.

happy 'sigh'....

I listened to Andrew Belle as I was working away, building layers... Andrew's album is called 'The Ladder'.... So that's how the name came about. 

I textured the pretty cows above with it.  

But I think this would be fab on a still-life. I can't wait to grab a little more time to really put it to the test!

I used 2 layers of 'the ladder'. One at soft light 100%. I then added another layer and pulled the edges out. I changed the blend mode to multiply and masked off the texture, leaving it only on the sky....for a painterly effect.

I've bought a couple of your packages and love all of them. I use them constantly on my blog. This one today is really nice. I like the postmark and the sharp contrasting edges. Another masterpiece!

"I quite agree with you.All right. I agree with you.I really disagree with you. Women should enjoy the same rights as men. Why can't a woman have her own career?Personally, I do not agree with this viewIf the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth;First, ask questions. Asking question doesn't mean you disagree with the statement. It simply means you're curious. You want to learn more.
