These lovely little forget-me-nots grow like a weed in my garden, I can see why they're so successful at spreading too, as their seeds tend to stick to your clothes in a big way! Of course I don't mind their weedy tendencies at all, in fact they're one of my favourite spring flowers, tiny as they are.
These ones were processed simply using a layer of Apple Blush at overlay 64% (blurred slightly) and a layer of Shargreen Bone at Softlight 55%. To keep the blue of the main flowers I added a layer mask to both texture layers and removed some of the texture from just the flowers.
For those of you who are new to textures we are hoping to do a beginners texture tutorial sometime soon but in the meantime we found this video tutorial on YouTube that might help you understand the basics in photoshop at least.
