But I digress.
This pretty little guy-or-gal was a small speck on a big flower, but it got my attention and I snapped this pic. When I later saw the image on my computer monitor and enlarged it, I was so pleased to see how sharp and clear this little bug stood out on the flower - not to mention how color-coordinated they were together!
The quote is my paraphrase of a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson (All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen).
My "formula" -- after cropping the original image from 12 x 9 to 10 x 8 and adjusting the levels, and contrast, I copied the image and used the Overlay blending mode (100%). Next layer up is Kim's "Water Stained Frame" set on Multiply blending mode (100%). Above that is another layer of "Water Stained Frame," this time using Soft Light blending mode (100%) and the top layer is Kim's "Scratched Magic July" using the Screen blending mode (85%)
The clipping mask was made using a brush from Anna Aspnes' "Hipster Plumes Korners & Edges No. 1" (designerdigitals.com) and an edge brush by "meth" and found at Brusheezy.com. Font is "Curlz MT"
