More texture pages

More experimental pages for my texture reference book.

It's just one of the forum projects going on at Cardmaking Paradise   see the link in the  post below.

I got my inspiration for this whilst looking out my garden studio window
on a dull wet grim sort of day.

 I cast my mind back to autumn last year with the bare vines of the ivy clinging to the birch trees
The leaves are starting to fall after the cold snap these past few nights, and I have mixed in some frosty wintery sparkle - and the wistful vintage girl printed on a perspex 'window' in the woods.

So somehow the challenge of using texture paste on a page - I seem to have turned into a Narnia type dream

And my 'texture paste' alas wasn't the posh art one - but a £! pot of unamed all purpose filler in a hardware shop!

The texture pages being created on the forum by members are so colourful and  beautiful - I just wish I didn't have a weird imagination and could just create the way they do - without it having to 'be' something pictorial.

Apparently it is all due to what sort of brain you have - honestly I was told that by a professional!

I happen to see things in pictures in my brain - tasks, problems, mathematical things - you name it I visualise it!  Tsk!
