Texture Thursday . . .

{CoffeeShop Web Paint frame, Deviant Art texture}

I know there are several sites that run a Texture Tuesday (or perhaps it is Thursday) - and each week I drool and 'ooh and awe' over the fabulous work posted. This week I decided to pull from my mounting collection of textures and take a stab at it.

I do not buy textures - or frames for that matter,
not because I don't value the time and talent it takes to create these artistic elements,
but because this is a hobby already inherently expensive and this aspect is a frivolous embellishment. (perhaps frivolous is too harsh - but the point is - it is an extra that is not essential to my progress in photography - but it certainly makes it more fun)
I am very appreciative of free offers by many generous artists,
and enjoy the challenge of finding my own through photographing rust, wood, and various geometric images.

Finding and applying textures is only limited by your imagination.
and the willingness to experiment.


  1. I LOVE these! Gorgeous work. I especially love the first shot. All of these would make beautiful wall hangings.

  2. I hope you don't mind that I pinned your top photo! It's gorgeous!

  3. I love what you did with these! Really beautiful!

  4. These are so beautiful.....You have done a great job using the textures and the frames....

    I too love textures and enjoy altering my photographs.....

  5. You did more than take a stab at rocked it! These are very beautiful. I agree with you about not purchasing textures and frames, the cost, even minimal can quickly add up.

  6. Wow Nicki, these are beautiful!!

  7. wow, i love the first and third shots. so beautiful, it reminded me of a watercolor or something like that. very pretty :)

  8. Muy chulas las fotos publicadas..geniales..un beso desde Murcia..seguimos..

  9. Beautiful beautiful job Nicki!!

  10. Lovely shots, I totally understand about having to limit finances in certain areas. I've had to pick and chose myself and usually equipment wins over funner things.
