While going through some of my files, I stumbled upon 12 textures I created for my final year thesis.

Below are 2 examples of what can be done with the use of these textures, click image for a higher resolution:



With a little bit of creativity, one can achieve amazing results by using the layer filter. Multiply it, color burn it, overlay it and etc. The netting effect as shown below can be achieved by rotating and overlapping the ‘Horizontal lines’ layer. Same goes with the ‘dot’ shadow effect.
