Using Texture As Background

Have you ever thought about using a texture as your background instead of your picture.This is an example of doing just that. I was reading on Bonnie’s Pixel Dust Photo Art site, and this is the question she asked the readers. My answer was “NO,”  but I was willing to give it a try. If you click on the link above, it will carry you to the page where she discusses this method and even gives you a free texture to use as your background. You will need to scroll midway down the page to get to that particular post. Her work is beautiful, and I am confident you will enjoy looking at her pages.

If you are wondering, this was the original of a wide open red and orangish-yellow tulip. I loved the picture SOOC so thought it might be a neat one to use for my experimentation. It took lots and lots of work on my part, but I FINALLY got it to this point. I will keep on trying because Bonnie’s are beautiful.

This is my post for Texture Thursday 
over at  Audrey’s "The Daily Wyatt.”


  1. Oh yes, it is beautiful, Genie! I also love the original photo!

  2. The textured tulip is outstanding. I love the colors.

  3. What a great, abstract look! I think it was worth all the effort!

  4. I am impressed with what you accomplished but I'll stick to original photography. Call me old fashioned, I don't care. :)

  5. I think both photos are very pretty. I've never thought of using texture as a background. Very interesting. Do you use photoshop?

  6. I'm liking them both, but the texture does have a great feel.
