I kept adding layer after layer of flowers on my image, till she was covered in a cap of roses and buds. Then I added several more fun images till I created this "Flowered Astrologer".
Most of the images I used to create this scene came from PaperWhimsy.
|Exotic Lady 03 from PaperWhimsy|
I started with this lovely lady as my base. I removed the background and part of her funky hair, then I colorized her and turned her into a png file so the background area would remain transparent.
(see my previous post Pretty in Pink to see my Photoshop tutorial on colorizing images.)
|Curtain 02 by PaperWhimsy|
I used this great curtain image by PaperWhimsy around my lady.
|Stars 02 by PaperWhimsy|
I used these PaperWhimsy Stars to for some extra fun in the background.
|Texture 10 by PaperWhimsy|
I used this amazing texture by PaperWhimsy as my background
and for extra color on my gold frame.
For my frame I added this as a clipping mask layer and set the color mode to
Color Burn- Opacity 93% - Fill 60%
This pulled a bit of the turquoise color into the gold frame to tie everything together.
|Botanique 05 by PaperWhimsy|
I used these roses as a group and individually in her hair.
|Botanique 06 by PaperWhimsy|
I used these blossoms individually throughout her hair.
I used this Zodiac chart as part of my background.
This is the gold frame I used to finish off my piece.

and only gave her a partial crown of flowers.
I'm not sure which I like best so I thought I'd show both versions for the fun of it.
Till next time...
