Textures, Brushes, Freebees and Books


Let's go shopping...

Have you met Ruth from R H West Photography?  She has the most wonderful photography, blog and Free Textures.  I love her basic tutorial on how to use a texture. She is coming out with a new collection of textures this month.

French Kiss Textures is another favorite of mine, and she has some wonderful tutorials.    Leslie from French Kiss Textures is hosting a Share Your Art to win The Glorious Grunge Texture Collection.  You simply use one of her glorious textures.  Then enter your photograph.  She will pick a random winner on Monday, March 19th. I just shared my photo entry on Our Flickr Group.


I recently met Sarah Gardner on Facebook, she lives in the UK and creates the most divine paper and frame collection sets.  Oh, and her web site is gorgeous, and she has written a new book called Art Beyond the Lens.

I am in love with Georgianna Lane's phtotography.  I love her blog  which was just featured in the latest Artful Blogging magazine.  Not to mention that she lives in Paris, sigh. I signed up for her newsletter, which is filled with inspiration.

So, please go "click shopping" and please make sure you leave a link to your favorite photography inspiration.

Dotti,

So glad that you liked the links. I love Kim Klassen and the ladies I mentioned on my post. What fun. Now if only I could find someone to do my cooking and cleaning, I could just play all day.

It is dangerous Terri. When I get a new layer or frame I get lost on the computer for hours. Not to mention the temptation to purchase some.

Steph,

I love learning about new techniques and finding new photographers to inspire.

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Textures are so much fun, and I love the brushes too.

Hi Claudia,
It's so much fun to visit new places. Who needs magazines, when we have so many resources on the Internet?

Dotti said...

Karen - I just loaded some of the textures from Sarah Gardner and love them! Thanks again, will go cruising the other sites later. Right now the sun is out and beckoning me ...

I tried to respond this morning from work, but I couldn't get it to post. Anyway - I feel like I just got an ice cream cone! One of my favorite things to do is to follow the websites that people list as their favorites. It's like paging through a magazine. Thanks for all he fun!

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Your welcome Carol. If only there were more hours in the day, so many wonderful resources.

Linda said...
