for someone like you.. per qualcuno come te ..

.. while I'm listening to my beloved Bocelli

 

BRENDA has asked me how I did this.. the 'why' is simple.. I already have a similar flower in my stream so I wanted it to look different.

 

In PICASA I first made a copy in case I blew it.. standard procedure.. then I cropped it square.. next I darkened the shadows (background) in Tuning.. the flower goes a little dark too.. so I next put a 'Glow' on it. to brighten the blossom. Then.. I used the spot colour section to highlight the center of the flower letting the rest go B&W.. you can vary the size on that. I signed it in PICASA. The border is put on in Piknic .. which is included in PICASA.. ALL done in PICASA in less than 15 mins.. the texture was put on in Paint Shop Pro but Tutincommon doesn't like it anyway .. so leave it off.. tada!! All done in PICASA and that software is FREE!!
