So this started out as a practice piece. I had a blank white image and I added the woman - I didn't bother to resize her, just wanted to play around with some techniques. Tried a little of this and a little of that and ended up liking her image. I also liked the white spaces around her but thought why not add some trees - well if you add trees you need birds and if you have birds you need bigger birds. Now this was OK but I still didn't like the pure white so I used two new textures from 2 Lil' Owl Studio and that finished off the image.
