Pebble Dash!

Seven pebble dash walls today. Why?! Because when I searched for them I couldn't find any! So I made my own and decided to share them since the poor simmie universe was bereft of pebble dash.

One of the walls has seams because... well I just couldn't get it to tile seamlessly. Pebble dash occasionally has seams anyway so I just drew one in where it was happening by itself.

They look much, much better in the game. I had to reduce the picture quality for uploading purposes. The texture is extremely clear and detailed in the game.

I could give a hand about seams about this one or others in futur if you like...
And you're right it was missing...

nanisim, Glad you'll have a use for them! More to come when I get tired of making paintings.

anbelad, Only the pebble dash I drew a seam on has one. The other six are seamless.

pixelhate, Thank you for the offer. I've actually got a bunch more I've been working on (in-between getting more paintings done) and I'm beginning to go a bit cross eyed from all the pebbles! I thought pebble dash would be a cinch, but it hasn't been. Some of it has been very, very time consuming and then I've ditched all the work to move on. If you're really interested I'll sort through my collection (I amassed quite a few) to weed out the seven I got to tile properly and the ones I gave up on and you can have them. After all, all I did was find the images on line for free!

Ya know, I really think these walls are what got my lot featured. They really are one-of-kind textures - I've never ever seen them anywhere else, and they are amazing! They are definately my favorite walls ever - the outside of a building is everything! and it seems there were never many choices for exteriors - even in cc... yep your walls are pretty much the only ones I use for exteriors nowadays...

Thanks Khaki what a great compliment! Not true, but very kind! I made them because I searched many, many sites and couldn't find them.

They're very common in the UK and I'm often tempted to take my digital camera with me when I take the kids and the dog for a walk to take close ups of the buildings in the village. My kids aren't quite old enough to be embarrassed by their Mom being a total digital nerd, but the day will come.

Anyway, I'm glad someone else likes them as much as I do. Thanks.

I had found these years ago (and sadly never thanked you with a comment) and loved them. Then, I lost EVERYTHING in my downloads folder on one horrible, doom-filled day. I have missed these walls but thought they were lost to me since I couldn't remember what they were called or who created them. I am beyond excited to have run across them again and this time properly thank you. I love these so much! Thank you!
