Floral Art

PSE flower

Leanne over at Photos by Leanne has started a new weekly photo prompt called "Floral Art Friday". Using flower photos, you add layers/texture, etc., to make your photo look more "artful". Since this is my favorite thing to do in PSE, I'm excited to participate (one day late)! If you want to give it a try, click on Leanne's button at the bottom of this post! For this image, I started with a purple flower I saw in Occoquan, VA. I added a couple of textures over the top, one blended at Difference and the other at Vivid Light. For the flower center, I used a reverse layer mask and the Lighter Color blend mode to add in the tiny flowers (public domain image). I then finished it up in Radlab to lighten and brighten it slightly.
