Based on a tutorial I've been doing, from advanced photoshop mag, I came up with this.
My laptop struggled with the layered filesize, but eventually we got there.
It's surprising what you can do with a ps lens-flare, after giving it a twirl Smile

Let me know what you think....
and thanks for taking a closer look.

I looked at this and thought of sugared almonds Grin (which, I hasten to add, I absolutely love). This is so pretty, and so well crafted.

Skillful stuff Andy !

Think a load of medusa like snakes out her head rather than girly flowers would have layered well Wink

But can see all the modes that went into this. Quality.

Lovely work - you could develop this with association of long, short, curly or straight hair and the flowers that would best fit
Brilliant work

Good point - the original tutorial uses an afro style, but once I'd thought of using wysteria, I knew the hair would be different.
As you say, lots of styles to choose from, and flowers to fit all styles.
