Flowers and the beach are a winning combination for me. I found this flower, an East-Coast Dune Sunflower, blooming at the edge of the beach the other day, following a wind storm. Love the sand in the center of the flower.
Linking up again with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.
This image was created in Photoshop Elements 8, using 4 different textures by Kim Klassen. First, I used Unleashed (Opacity “Pin Light”, 40%), with the texture removed from the flower. Then applied Sunkissed (Normal @ 100%) & MusicLoving (Overlay). Merged both textures & deleted portion over the flower and changed Opacity to Hue reduced to 15%. Copied Hue layer, and removed center, creating a lighter edge around image. Added text, then merged all layers before appling texture Elevate (Opacity Darken at 25%), copied this layer again, removing all of layer except the outside edge, creating a darker frame. Flattened all layers. Et Voila!
