6 High Resolution Sand and Seashell Textures

Earlier this summer I took a trip to the Florida Gulf Coast with my family. We spent much of our time there walking up and down its beautiful beaches, which were covered in seashells, not the BP oil spill. As soon as I saw them I knew that they would make an excellent set of textures to release on this site; so I took several shots with my camera, packaged them up, and am releasing them to you guys for free. Enjoy!

    Thanks so VERY much for these wonderful textures. I love beach themes and these will come in handy, I know, for scrapping next week’s mini vacation in San Diego. I also wanted to commend you on your last article about comments and flaming. Anyone who has ever prepared a tutorial of any kind know how much work is involved. I could not imagine giving anything but kudos to someone who takes their own previous time to do it. Yes, there is a lot of junk out there, but we are all learning; and there is no other way to get good at something than to make every mistake in the book. Thank YOU for giving so generously of your own time. It is much appreciated.
