dabbling in life: I don't know how I did it

I don't know how I did it

I see these beautiful, pale photos that have been layered until they have such a "dreamy" look to them.  I wanted to make one.  A search through my macro photos for something that was in the pale pink family produced this Gerber Daisy.  Perfect.


I added a texture layer, and then started playing with the adjustments.  To my surprise, pale and dreamy isn't what appeared.


But I love it!  I can see it framed with lots of white border -- maybe even a white frame.  And my first thought was what a beautiful scarf in a soft, sheer fabric.  A scarf that would coordinate with everything in my closet.  Or maybe even a vintage style dress -- like something from the 40's.  Fabric.  Yes, definitely fabric.  Fabric making would probably be taking my dabbling a bit too far -- so, I'll have to go with the framed lots of white border.  This certainly wasn't what I set out to achieve -- it's my found art!
