So the iris are coming our in our neighborhood. I went and took some pictures yesterday - it wasn't that great a day for the flowers because it had rained and they were a little soggy so I only took a few pics. What I did take were actually pretty nice. I made the above image last night with 2 of the photos. Below are some of the elements that I used in the image.
This is the vintage image I extracted the girl from I just loved her beautiful face and eyes. I did convert it to B&W and later added a touch of color. Below are the two iris pictures I used - the bigger flower on the right and the group on the left behind the girl. I also added a few flowers in the bottom right corner for balance. I then added a few textures, some blending modes, masking, some writing and then the old frame and some spatter.
