Texture Tuesday: a Favorite Movie

Adding textures to photos is proving to be fun, creative and a wee bit time consuming. Please tell me I will speed up with practice!

This week's challenge was to choose a favorite MOVIE. 
This was easy to do with photos, but I wanted to take it a step further and use PAINTINGS that represent the country where the movie takes place.

These are my two original paintings:
This painting is a collage. It is hanging with several other paintings representing children of other cultures, in a library in Maryland.

A  Balinese Dancer.

These are the two textures I used to get the final results.

Kim Klassen's texture

Natures  Beauty

This texture I created photographing a set of Balinese wooden batik stamps.

Here are the textured photos.
What do you think?

I quite like the texture on these two paintings. Would make great cards or prints.  Feel free to print for your OWN use.
