In my attempt to use the macro setting on my point and shoot, I got this somewhat blurred
image, but I love
the hot pink color and decided to play with it in PSE.
From here I changed blend modes to get the black background.
I then added an impressionistic texture I made and a French Kiss texture "Purple Prose".
I think I like this result the best.
For fun I added Bonnie's "Leafy Landscape" texture just to see.
I've seen so many great blogs with incredible images and even better processing with and
without textures. Just look what Andrea of "From the Sol" did with the
"Leafy Landscape" texture. Also check out Phyllis' images from "A Place to Hang My Pictures"
using the same texture.
