Roses transformed

This is a photo that's been sitting in my archives for ages, I didn't like the dark wood I had shot against so it had been rejected. This afternoon I had a bit of time to play and managed, quite easily too,  to disguise the darkness. It's inspired me, so hope it might inspire you too!
So here's how I did it...

Oxford Parchment @ Hard Light 75%
Peach blush @ Screen 100% Masked as desired from the focus areas
Aquarius @ Hard light 52% masked as above
Brushed Rose @ overlay 8% this just added a little warmth
Curves and levels adjustments to tweak tone
And voila! An image transformed!

Beautiful photo! I love my flypaper textures, I have so many photos that I have revisited with the help of the textures it brings new life to the photo.

Oooooh... I just found you dear Flypaper people... I think this is going to become a haunt of mine. Can't decide what to buy yet but will be back!! I didn't see it in your special offers, but do you offer a deal if I want to buy EVERYTHING? :)

I now have your Spring Painterly collection! I do hope that you will have a tutorial now and then to help people like me who really need help!

Lol, I think you must be a mind-reader! I was writing the very first one when you wrote this note!
Don't worry, for the first several days we leave the blog's New texture flier up to help our buyers locate as easily as possible, then the tutorials arrive as I've just started.
Thanks for that note Evelyn!:-)
