Nice props Jenni,for me you could have done without the Rose or the eyes in the mask,especially the eyes Wink
Your 'things' need grounding a little I feel, with a bit of a shadow under them,especially noticable on that pretty bottle which seems to be floating in mid air.
Try doing a bit of shading on a separate layer then you can remove it/increase it /change the blend mode as you see fit.
That mask is very pretty & will come in useful for many photographic opportunities methinks Wink

Thanks all, and yes, Janet, I really must remember the shadows, the actual shadows tend to get lost in the under the textures, found one way of enhancing them was to burn just them in on a separate layer, but keep forgetting to do it ............ my first version had no 'eyes' and it didn't look right somehow, that's why I decided to add the eyes, and although it made it a bit 'scary' as Dave says, it did seem to add some substance the the set up; will try your idea for shading as well, thanks for the suggestion, this sort of set up is always an interesting learning curve to get just right ............... many thanks, Jenni
