I Love Texture!!!

Good evening from London, Ontario! This is a different sort of post from what I usually do - it has absolutely nothing to do with stamps. Just a little inspiration to share with all of you texture lovers out there ;)

I needed to clear my head this evening and set out on my bike. The lighting was just beautiful along the path by the Thames River (Yes, to all of you in the UK there is a London in Canada and we also have a Thames River. Lol). I ended up catching my breath on a concrete lookout point about 20 feet above the river. It's been fenced off multiple times for safety but people keep cutting the fence and sneaking through to dangle their feet off of the edge. They've also covered the spot in layer upon layer of spray paint. As a whole it was a mess but the details were beautiful! I took out my phone and snapped some shots. I hope you enjoy looking through what I found...

I'm thinking mixed media backgrounds now. Did you get any ideas? Bye for now :)
