The Texture Touch


I think this image says it all for the start of August.  Are you experiencing a heat wave too? If you're stuck indoors today, make it a "play day" with a new texture.ology lesson and a free texture too!

  12. Beautiful soft tones and subtle textures in the barn photo. We're having a heat wave in eastern Canada as well. It's more of a pleasure to stay indoors, rather than being "stuck" inside, during the high heat of the day. I found my way to your blog through Tones on Tuesday and am very much liking what I see here. Will definitely have some indoor playtime today exploring your site.
