Dried Roses


This little composition was made by serendipity. I was organizing things in my studio, had a pile of vintage French ephemera laying on the counter and absentmindedly placed some dried roses that I was going to trash on them. Days passed. The petals scattered. Back to cleaning up and I noticed the composition. I photographed it exactly as is.

I had used another texture with this composition and was quite happy with it, but yesterday when I scanned this acrylic wash I realized this was the texture for this image.

The texture Provence is from the Studio No. 5 Collection. It's an Uber-big file that can be cropped for more subtle variations.

Blend Mode: Multiply / Opacity: 100% / Very slight layer masking on flower and petals.

I also duplicated the texture layer, set it to Normal Blend Mode, filled the layer mask with black and then with a grunge brush set to white, covered up parts of the text on the paper background.

Amazing, the cool “images” that can appear organically in our potting shed, greenhouse and studio…! What a great eye you have!
