This time I used a photo and played almost all day with "Bootz" and the textures and options available on the (free) site for doing this activity.

Now I've discovered that I can overlay textures of my own over one of my photos and so I sit here, trying to improve my skills at "texturing."
I have just put some of them over a flower photo of choice. I have many flower photos and think each one would have different results.
Sometimes they come out OK, sometimes with horrible results, but I keep on and am almost obsessed with trying out different things. I really like only one of these.
Then I used a friend's photos and made MORE!
I didn't use my own textures here.
