I used a photo of my old wooden box to create some grungy wood grain brushes.
Then I used those brushes and some Freebie drips and drop brushes I found on the net and created a new texture image out of an old one I wasn't happy with.
The limitless possibilities of these brushes both the creating and the using is amazing. I wake up at night dreaming about them but they are a lot of fun.
I have used one of my new textures in this image...Sit and Ponder.
I found her in a shop a few years ago when life was giving me a few thorns and she looked so forlorn I just had to give her a home.
She is a very willing model and you will see more of her in the future. (and she's not nearly as forlorn as she looks).
