A Romantic Bouquet – creating a vintage look

I recently received this photo of a bouquet I had sent. It was made up of two of my favorite flowers, irises and lavender roses and I could not resist giving it a vintage treatment. I painted it with several layered textures using blending modes and layer masks and…voila’!

I am really enjoying exploring a softer, more romantic, vintage look for my photos, a radical departure from my customary style of highly stylized, highly saturated images. Could see a whole new series of images done in this style coming down the pipe real soon. Feeling a creative shift…maybe I’m in love?
