Tasty textures

Coloured lino print background textures

As part of my stock selling mission I’ve decided to include textures in my portfolio. I have a long habit of scanning anything I think might make an interesting texture and then tinkering with it in Photoshop. This week I have mostly been making two toned lino textures.

I have made these for sale on Shutterstock and the red one has already had some downloads which is an exciting start. More textures to come soon…

Inverted

Here’s an inverted version of the lino textured concentric circle pattern.

It’s my definition of inverted because the white on blue version came first but it could be  argued that this is the positive version really.

I do love the scanned lino print texture. I sat and printed multiple versions of an uncut A4 lino sheet to get an authentic and convincing effect.

I’ve had a blogging hiatus but definitely not a creative one. The last few months I’ve been mainly focusing on pattern designs. I’ve opened a shop on Spoonflower with my first ten uploaded designs at https://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/quirkymundo

It’s what happens when you cross a vector pattern with a scanned lino print texture and a nice blue colour.
