Over the years I mentioned that when Susan Tuttle + I wrote Photo Craft: Creative Mixed Media and Digital Approaches to Transforming Your Photographs we had enough content to probably fill two books! As a result, this left us with many projects on the cutting room floor.

This quickie DIY texture (awesome to use in your digital manipulations of photographs) is easy to do and is incredibly versatile when blending with your photographs. Scan the finished product for a high-resolution texture or take a photo of it with your iPhone or other mobile device and use it as a soft texture on your mobile photography! You can create multiple textures by focusing on different parts of the painting when you digitize it. (winning!)

Download the PDF at my publisher's site that hosts the bonus content from our book.
Or download it from me directly should that not work. 

Not the painting type? You can download my finished, high-resolution texture right here. Please note the non-commercial license to use I am granting below.
