Summer Hollyhocks on the Farm

Here's the photo processing recipe layer by layer :

Good thing I saved that old pallet for a background!  I had my husband holding up the pallet behind the flowers so I'd have more of a barn wood background

Layer 1) Background Image Hollyhocks
Layer 2) Copy Layer 1 - Screen Blend Mode - 24%
Layer 3) 2LO Winter Storms 10 Texture - Multiply 50%
Layer 4) Copy Layer 3 - Soft Light - 100%
Layer 5) Sweet Leaf Texture - Alcohol Ink #5 - Soft Light 100%
Layer 6) Sweet Leaf Texture - Iron Gall Ink - Soft Light 100%

Layer 7) Crop to middle section for Rule of Thirds
Layer 8) Vignette

Crop to Square-ish
I think I like this one best.
I just couldn't bring myself to muddy up the old wood with text.

Gosh, that looks so much like fabric. Where's the thread painting? :-)

Not sure about the last crop to square. I think I would like more of the hollyhocks showing. I don't blame you for leaving text off this time. And let's here it for husbands who help with staging! I never would have guessed that wasn't a fence or side of a building they were growing in front of.
