You asked for it. Snicker. Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Here are three I experimented with. I LOVE flowers. LOL

The first one is done with the emboss filter and inverted, overlaid onto a colored sandstone texture. The top layer was a find edges, which was overlaid and the opacity reduced.

The second one was the same as above except I put the original on top and overlaid it, reduced the saturation to make it look like it does. I kinda like it. It reminds me of that material so popular in the 1950s, washed out but bold and splashy too.

The third one was playing around with the impressionist filter.

These are all fantastic - this is such a good picture to play with, I couldn't resist a few more all done in Photobrush, haven't played with that for a while.

first is coloured pencil plus another filter but I can't remember which probably one of the xero ones.

second is the glass filter.

third is xero duochrome and Photobrush watercolour.

Flower Fun

Xaran, I really like the third one. The pastel look is great.

This is such a great photo for experimenting with. Thanks to Danny for posting it.

Thanks Janet, I liked that one too. Heres another version, just to keep things going.

Duplicated layer
Xero Line Art Sketch - line 10.
Layer Mode = difference
Merge to new layer.
switch off line art layer
change layer mode of merged layer to colour burn

Quite liked it at this point as very bright and sparkling.

Paint daubs and canvas texture added via filter gallery.

My version

I used PS Dry brush filter and Paint engine Impression 1 & 2 and came up with this.

qtranva: Looks like you had fun on this one, too. Well done.

Before embarking on my creative adventure, I hadn't seen any of these marvelous creations. I found it interesting that so many of you decided to "go wild and crazy," too.

For openers I duplicated the background and added a 2 px white (inside) stroke. Then Select > All, Edit > Define Pattern.

A Pattern Layer was added (Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern) using the newly created pattern and I adjusted the scale percentage to 20% to get 5 x 5 matrix of flower pics. The blend mode was changed to Color Burn.

The Pattern Layer was duplicated and its blend mode changed to Exclusion.

A Hue/Saturation adjustment layer added and Layer > Group with previous applied so it only affected the top Pattern layer. Hue/Sat settings (purely subjective): -29, -33, + 28.

I duplicated the BG again and dragged it to the top of the layer stack. Select > All, Ctrl + T (to invoke Free Transform). The layer was resized and repositioned so part of the 5x5 flow matrix showed from below.

Layer > Layer Styles was invoked and I applied about every option possible (Drop shadow, Bevel, etc.). Nothing scientific here, either.

Frame and background applied with actions.

It's fun to get wild and crazy sometimes, isn't it?

Another go at this image,

Duplicated background 4 times.

Bottom copy - Sketcher
Next copy - soft light mode - looks quite good at this point
Next copy - find edges - multiply mode
next copy - find edges - soft light mode

The textured look comes from the sketcher layer.
