This gorgeous Anemone photograph with a watercolor texture is by Suzan Dowell-Glaser of PhotosbySuzan on Flickr. I have a personal story about it as well!
Here is the original texture by the way. It's Rainy Day from the Autumn Rain Watercolor Texture Collection.
A Little Personal Story
I stumbled upon this image on Pinterest serendipitously right as I was finishing the update to the Autumn Rain Watercolor Texture Collection. My first reaction was that I loved the image, then I felt jealous of the texture. It wasn't until I was in the process of pinning it that I realized that it was my texture! (Big thanks to Suzan for the attribution!) I didn't realize it was my texture at first as Suzan used it in a unique way for her artistic vision.
There are two parts to why finding this art this was special for me.
Firstly it was a nice affirmation for me. Right before I release a collection, I go through a period of doubts. I slip down my rabbit hole of creating and production for weeks at a time alone in my studio. I put a lot of love into creating, but I almost always have some doubts. "Maybe these textures are too wild." "Am I putting in too many variations?" "Should I re-size these or leave them as is?" You get the picture! (Pun intended!) I found this image right as I was going through that phase, so it really helped to see the validity of the collection through a customer's usage.
Secondly, and most importantly, it's always a source of delight to see what my customers are creating. I'm always amazed at your creativity! You are a huge source of inspiration. I learn a lot from you and I'm energized by your creations and feedback. You are awesome!
