Practice helps to move toward perfection. Maybe I won't reach the level of perfection in my photography and image editing that I am striving for; however, the process is very entertaining. Here's another layer image w/a textured background from the wonderful Kim Klassen (see sidebar for link to her site).
I've combined my love of vintage dolls, beautiful cut flowers (luscious pink peony from Trader Joe's in Scottsdale, AZ) and PhotoShop brushes for a gentle image. Maybe one brush stamp would have been enough, but two or more is always better, in my way of doing things.
