Beyond Layers Day 2 : Simplicity

I signed up for Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers class.  52 weeks of Inspiration! I thought this would really make me practice using PhotoShop Elements.   The Lesson for Day 2 was about saying more with less.  Simplicity.

I started with a photo taken in April in Toto's kitchen in Mailly, France.  The lilacs were in bloom, and smelling of so fragrant!
>  Cropped it
>  Added a Layer with Kim's Bestill Texture on Multiply Blend Mode at 85% Opacity
> Added the word Simplicity as another layer, choosing a color from the bouquet. Zapfino font.

Here's the original photo (after the initial cropping) :

The texture certainly adds depth to the pretty blooms.
