Reader Submitted Textures: Christy  Sobolewski

Today I'm proud to announce the first reader submitted textures here on Lost and Taken. If you would like to submit your own textures to L+T just click here.

Reader Submitted Textures: Christy Sobolewski -

Christy submitted a nice collection of paper, grunge, and collage textures that should be useful to designers and photographers alike.

What Christy has to say about the textures:

A variety of textures I have created with things such as: ink, tissue paper, acrylics, caulk, chalk, wood filler and even spackle.

I would just like to take a second and thank Christy for being the first person to submit their textures to L+T, I look forward to seeing what the rest of you have coming!

These are GREAT !! Plus I love the idea of sharing. I too have a ton of textured abstracts I've created, but I'm thinking I'm so behind it'll be a while before I get around to scanning them. I'll keep this URL to remind me put in on my list.
