    I decided to purchase the class as I needed more clarification on when and where to use textures. I watched all three videos and it helped me understand how and went to use them. I’ve been scrapbooking awhile and for some reason haven’t used textures much. Maybe they were a little intimidating as I haven’t been sure when and if they are supposed to be recolored or how to use them to enhance the page design. This helped my understanding. Anna’s classes are always the best.
