OB and Grant, loved the roses.

Thanks Becky. To get the texture put a blank layer on top of the background layer.Then clouds,glowing edges, emboss and then invert all on the same layer and set the blending mode to overlay and adjust opacity to your liking somewhere between 60-80% I generally use.Hope you can follow this.

Grant- that's a really cool way to get some nice texture into a photo

I used Grant's idea and then just kept running some of my actions and gave it a border

Re: a few assorted flowers

Ol Baldy great version and funny video clip

Nasturtium that has worked well for simplification

And more good versions ol baldy but the daisy is my fav

Grant the black background, and glow work really well, sets the rose of great

Becky i like it as it is very nice

and another good one Nasturtium quite funky

Peter i will let your lateness off, (again) bold and beautiful

I love the old fashioned roses, too. The scent is so much more powerful than my tea roses. Unfortunately they are magnets for Japanese Beetles here. Before they even emerge from the bud, they are riddled with holes. Thanks for the link. David Austin roses are beautiful.

Re: a few assorted flowers

Another Fractilus attempt. Also, used that result to create the fired rose (see link below; too big for forum and didn't want to loose quality).
