    We’ve never actually had a “theme” for our beautiful and persistent texture giveaways, but Christine Farrelly gifted us with lace-like patterns last month, and now France Proctor has created a texture set of enough rocks to keep Fred Flintstone and Barney busy for ages (specifically the Upper Paleolithic Ages). Try these out as wall textures in your illustrations (they’d go great with your ideal Man Cave), put text on them and create a reflection for “Museum” themes, or you could actually draw some rocks using these textures as fills, and then add some shading with black, white, and some transparency.

    But perhaps the best motivation to get you started with your rock garden is the Guest tutorial this month, where Frances takes you through the steps to making a wet string of text on a stone surface. Get your imagination and your igneous out and watch the video tutorial!

    So let's get stoned! Show off your masonry work here.

    Thanks for that Francis, thought I'd read correct and it was'nt the pain killers sending me round the twist. It was a good Aussie programme on telly that many moons ago Thanks also for those great tiles.

    @Everyone—In addition to the textures, Frances shows how to write "liquid text" on a seamless tile surface this month. And this is the first time a Guest tutorial has been a video. Go get out a chisel and your bathing suit.

    While we are waiting for that outhouse here is a stone wallpaper I created for my cell phone. It was inspired by the new material design theme that comes with Android's new Lollipop upgrade that is just out.

    That is an interesting idea, this is the state I reached today with extrudes however during the process that became rather a brick grill

    Used your tile fills on an old tut. shape Francis, using all the colour tools and brightness tool.
