Many thanks to the Judges! I took three different photos of the poppies that I took in Savannah and put them in layers. I moved them around to get them positioned the way I wanted them and then I used masks to brush in the flowers I wanted in the picture. I made a duplicate of that layer and used the filter in Lucis Art named Plaid 2 and used another mask to brush in the effect I wanted for the finished photo. In other words, it was probably just dumb luck! Thanks, again! #9373139
