A touch of the exotic. This started out as a photograph of one of my indoor plants. With some editing in Photoshop, I then took a part of the plant image and made a mirror-repeat pattern from it. Next step was to create a pink flower graphic on a new layer and I applied some blending options to the layer before merging all the images together to make this colourful exotic-looking image.

    Brilliant work, Orla. It’s a great image. Agnes xx

  • Thank you Agnes. I love playing around with images in Photoshop. I think this one will probably appeal more to girls rather than guys. The guys might not be too keen on the ‘pink’ flower. Nice to hear from you. :)
