I am trying to achieve this look: and just can't seem to get it right.
Have played with all kinds of textures such as this sample by Melinda:

and yet the best I can really get to that is simular is this: .

Just not right. I like the fact that the look I want, doesn't look like a square box...

Thank you in advance.
