Sarah Gardner is an amazing artist whose work I recently became familiar with. She is a photographer and creator of amazing textures. She recently hosted a magnificent giveaway on her blog and I just got the notification that I won! And best of all the prize is her entire collection of textures!
This is one of my images that was created using one of Sarah Gardner's textures.
She also moderates a Flickr group that I recommend to anyone who has an interest in Textured Art.
I just have to say thank you again, Sarah! I'm unbelievably excited.
