I love textures, I admit. And I love the different look that any picture takes once you add some texture work.
Here it is. The result:

This is the original:

And the process.
First,I opened the picture in Photoshop (here are all the layers, I hid all them, to show the process)

Then,applied one of the Florabella Actions, I think it was Sweet Haze. See what it looks like:

Next,the borders. I used first Fly Edges 14, from Flypaper textures, and set the blending mode to multiply.

And finally, other Flypaper border: Fly edge 1, the blending mode was overexpose, and the opacity lowered to a 16%, so that it gives but a subtle shade.

using Flypaper Textures

I fell in love with Flypaper Textures. And you'll agree I'm right.
Look at this little red roofed house. I thought it was cute. But decided to give it a try with a texture. And voilá...

it's spring!

At last Spring is coming and everything is in full bloom.
Everywhere you look there's flowers in full bloom. I loved these wild hyacinths:
miss spider loved wild hyacinths

I processed the original to alter it slightly. First, I contrasted it a bit more through adjustments slider, and then I used Florabella Actions> cosmopolitan.
The result is a bit more dramatic.
Hope you like it.
Have a nice time!
