First I want to thank Polly 470 for her User Award for Love ..........through a mist
I love Pauline's work with textured layers, so it was very special to receive her award for a textured image SmileSmile

This is outside of my comfort zone, but just before Tony put my weeds through the shredder I thought I would use some of the grasses. The scarf belonged to my grandmother. The texture is frost on the car window changed to green

Thanks for looking

Helen

Green and burgundy tones, a lovely balance. I like the thinking behind this as well.
The scarf looks a bit stiff and contrived, I'd prefer it to flow more horizontally. Loads of possibilities for future arrangements...

I like your use of the iced screen as a texture, Helen. The compositiion is unusual with the shape of the scarf but it works so well. A beautifully worked image.

Beautifully done, the only thing that distracts me a lot is that level of the brown table is not the same left and right.
The idea with the white cardboard and the scarf is fantastic. Far beyond the reach of my skillsWink

Expertly put together, Helen, and so interesting to both read your explanation of the textured layer and see the original set-up. The two predominent colours complement each other well.

Beautiful shot !!!......great opportunity with those grasses, with a lovely arrangement, & textures !!!!

One teensy thing for me, is the sharp division, twixt b/g & base....I'd be inclined to blend the 'join' for a soft transition.....but if you intended the
sharp join then just ignore my witterings !!.Grin
