Today's assignment in Beyond Layers was to work with the word "whisper." That meant coming up with something soft and delicate - not my usual type of work! Kim also provided two new textures for us to work with.
This photo was taken in Beaufort, North Carolina. At one time this building was a school/academy. I think it's a private home now. My original photo was way too intense in color, so I used Kim's "flourish" texture twice and "the veil" texture once. I did a lens flare layer, based on Kim's instructions, and adjusted "levels" to get the dreamy/hazy atmosphere. On most layers, I erased the layer where it covered the flowers so that I could keep most of the color in the flowers. Here's the original photo:
