Everything by Anna Aspnes

ArtPlay Wonderful
Melange FotoBlend
Tissue Texture No 4
Sparkle Edge Overlays No !
ArtPlay Blossom
ArtPlay Bask
Different Strokes No 9
Stitched by Anna White 4
Font for Tulip (Scriptina)

Process:  I first chose my photo, placed it in the center of my page.  Added the FotoBlend and clipped my photo to it.  I then added artsy paper #2.  Moved my photo around to fit it on the page to best showcase it.  I decided I wanted more of the tulip edge to show so I went to the FotoBlend layer, used a black brush at 50% opacity and painted some black in, since the photo is clipped to it, it added some more of the flower to the mask.  Below the mask layer I started to add some transfers to build more of the watercolor effect I wanted to achieve.  Right above the background layer I added the tissue texture to add more interest to the paper.  Above all the layers I added my embellishmennts (splats, stitches, buttoms and wreath.)  Finishing with the wordart from Artplay blossom and the Title.
