Re: Garden flowers

Oooo, Palms, nice flowers. Here's a Talisman Rose for you. :-)

QuickMaksed the rose at 100% opacity then used a textured brush at 50% to pick up some of the green leaves around the edges. HSB adjustment to change the color to more of a Talisman Rose look, added texture. On a layer below, I used a Soft brush with the dark orange and lighter yellow orange as Foreground/Background pushed up the hue jitter on the brush and painted the background. G' Blurred this background then did vertical motion blur, rotate, motion blur again, rotate back to get kind of a "drippy" blended look. Texture, frame etc.

No pattern stamp. The only painting done was to QM the rose and create the background.

Re: Garden flowers

Thank you, Palms and Janet. Funny, it was the first thing I saw when I looked at the photo. It had to be a skirt! Just the general shape of the group of flowers begged for it to be so. And Captain Picard said... "Make it so." LOL

Re: Garden flowers

Here's another rose for you, Palms. I thought a change of color would be nice.

Re: Garden flowers

They are all very very pretty.
I didn't do much, added a colored border, some drop shadow and buttonize.
Oh yes and a Hummingbird.
Our back porch is alive with them.
