I took the photo of the fence this a.m. with the idea of creating a textured background with it . . . and then I remembered I had a snow photo from sorta the same angle . . . so I merged the two photos in the above collage . . . and then I created the following texture (which you are welcome to use) by merging my photo with a texture from playingwithbrushes . . . I then used this same texture to create a heritage collage featuring my maternal grandma . . .
