I am relatively new at this textures play, so I am having troubles with getting the textures to look right. I think I like a bit of drama…but tend to go overboard.
The original photo is the upper left one in the collage…a purple flower from my garden with a bokeh background. I used pumpkin grunge and autumn burst textures(I think!!) from Kim Klassen at assorted blend modes and opacities in PSE.
I have to keep playing till I get effects I like. However, I do like the bright one in the bottom right but I believe that PSE auto-enhance did the trick with that one! I also like how the leaves almost glow in the upper right one..but overall it is too dark. And in the bottom left one I like the background texture..but overall it is too vague and indistinct.
