Apologies - I forgot to summarise the steps I took to produce my interpretation.

Duplicated background ( twice )
On one - Impressionist / pencil / soft textured
Moved two copies of background ABOVE this layer - one with Overlay mode ans one with Multiply mode.

merged these layers

then applied Virtual painter - Illena drawing and adjusted until I was happy !

Hope that helps. I never realised how complex these adjustments are until I had to start thinking about RECORDING them.

Not sure exactly what this is supposed to be....

Duped original and isolated the flower.
Curves, levels, and selective color adj. layers only on flower.
Linked layers and merged.
Copied flower twice to new layers and did minor adjustments to each.
Gaussian blurred each new flower layer very minimaily ( under 1.0 pixels )
Cropped pic. a little bit.
Created an explosion/glow effect with MythWave action.
Put this in behind/on-top of pic. and changed blend mode to Saturation.

Like I said, not sure what this is supposed to be.....
