Flower for Texture Tuesday

Today's theme was to use a photograph of a flower and add some of Kim Klassen's textures to the image.  Here's the original photo:

Added "Reverie" texture, Hard Light, 80%
     Erased texture layer over flowers, 100%
Added "Flourish" texture, Multiply 75%
     Erased texture layer over flowers using 50% brush
Again added "Reverie" texture, this time Soft Light 75%
Flattened, and added text
Used Adjust, Posterize at 12

This flower stalk is next to our house.  I probably shouldn't even show this picture, but here you can see what a lonely flower it is!  I don't know where it came from - I don't think my husband ever planted it.  I don't do any yard work.  Oh, you already guessed that....

I also don't know what kind of flower it is.  Does anyone know its name?

The "after processing" image turned out so lovely. These colors of the flower are gorgeous. Hum...is it a Glad?

Jean Baardsen said...

Right, Beverly. I asked my husband and he said it's a gladiolus. He also said he didn't plant it - it's one of the flowers we "inherited" when we bought the house.

Funny seeing you ask about flower names when I do that all the time:) My FB and blog people are great about answering my ignorance about plants:)
It is very pretty and I like the flourish layer.

A beautiful picture -- and a beautiful gladiolus.

This is a beautiful glad. I've never seen one this color. I like your texture effects. It would make a pretty card.
