Very nice and welcome to RP Titia. I like your methods. They are some I haven't seen explored.

Hello, Titia:

Welcome and thank you for your lovely interpretation and instructions. PSP is fine to use. Whatever program(s) work for you.

Your English is much better than my Dutch!

Simply copied it 4 times, changed blend mode to screens, and lowered the opacity on each copy. Just an experiment of a sort....

Also at work....

Experimenting is perfectly fine, Tyler. That's how all of us learn.

Just don't get into trouble doing it at work!

Wow--everyone's images are great! I'm new to the forums & I am getting so inspired seeing so much creativity and variation in the group...not to mention the sharing spirit!

Beautiful picture, Christine! I love orchids and they always remind me of my grandmother (Lois), who passed away last year. She loved them as much as I do--and her favorite color was purple, so that's where I got the inspiration to do this...

(and I even remembered to keep track of what I did this time, which is unusual in itself! )

Photoshop:
1. removed background
2. created layer under flowers - rendered clouds, then difference clouds, then hit ctrl f till I liked the look (a trick I learned just yesterday in the forum)
3. new layer & snapshot
4. dup'd that layer 3 times
5. bottom new layer: filter, sketch, waterpaper - blend mode soft light
6. middle new layer: filter, artistic, neon glow - blend mode color
7. top new layer: filter, artistic, cutout then filter, artistic, watercolor - blend mode darken
8. new layer & snapshot
9. decided I didn't like the background after it'd been through the cutout, so masked that snapshot over a dup of the original cloudy background so it blended better
10. added border & textured with sandstone

This was fun!!! I did it at work too...but on my lunch break!

Such lovely blossoms -- thanks for the use of the image!

Welcome, Donna! A lovely remembrance of your grandmother, and a lovely addition to the thread!
Everyone is having a good time, and sharing the beauty.

Did a few layers of Polar Distortion of the orchids to create a background for the subject layer of orchids. Did some dry brush/chrystallize etc. to the subject layer, and added a overlayer of textured white (used the notepaper filter) which I erased off in areas using the Fuzzball brush.

These flowers (orchids?) are beautiful. Thanks for letting us use them.
Here are a couple of renditions:
The first is done with ErickN's action (available on action central). I've substituted a canvas overlay instead of the action's texture layer.

The second is done with Trimoon's watercolor method on his Artistic Expressions cd. Again I used a canvas pattern adj. layer here instead of a water color texture. I prefer the look of the canvas to the watercolor texture.
