Sam's Rose  by jesika

My second attempt at layers & textures.
The original image of Sam’s Red Rose was desaturated in Photofilter to -55%, a sepia filter applied and further desaturated to -25% in the red channel.
Using PSE4 I used screen filter 22%, & then dodge tool around the edges.
Texture 1 was a cream roller blind & Overlay filter -56%
Texture 2 a stock image & Normal filter 100%.

This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.

Failed domestic goddess;
Photography flop
but a
BRILLIANT doggie mummy!
Dos this mean I’m a FAILED failure???

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Free your mind – and think.

    The process sounds very complicated but it was worth the results. Looks like a canvas; lovely texture and warm creamy tones.
