I often admire other photos utilizing textures as in here, here, here and here but without Photoshop being installed on my computer I have limited resources. While taking the Picture Summer e-class and creating the post card I figured out how to add layers with Picnik. So now that I knew how to add layers I knew that I could also add textures. I went about the internet searching for free textures to enhance the photo seen above.

You can even add bokeh to a photo but that seems like cheating. Textures can add visual interest but also can often make a photo look like a Thomas Kinkaid painting.
