An image of a lilly taken at the local Botanic Gardens here in Adelaide. I thought the image was quite appropriate for the name of Kim's texture and in line with the theme of simpliciity and "just enough".
Just One Rose
Image #1 - Awaken.
I cropped and lightened the original in photoshop/lightroom - paying particular attention to the "glow" of the yellows and the delicate shade of mauve/purple in the petals.
Once happy with the original I applied the "Awaken" texture from Kim using an overlay blending mode @ 56% opacity - no need to mask any of this I think.
Image #2 - Just One Rose
This is a little more complicated to get the effect that I was pleased with - keeping in mind that I wanted a different feel than the first image.
This image of a single rose had some nice pinks and yellows and a nice dark background to set the flower off.
I applied the two of Kim's textures using a blending mode of soft light @ 80% opacity to both layers. I masked these layers so the texture was applied only to the background. I choose Kims' texture "Evolve" because of it's nice texture, light centre and good vignette to the outer part of the image.
I then applied the layer with the "old book" using a multiply blending mode at 85% - no masking.
On yet another layer I duplicated the image and converted it to B&W left it at normal blending mode but at 23% and masked out the rose leaving the muted effect on the background only.
A little long winded but that is what we do when we are in a creative mood. :)
