Love in a pool

By Mavis
Today Carol G was helping me to get a blurred background .First I had to go round the flower with the magnetic tool in PS then invert then pic blurr in filters & go to Gaussian blurr 250 & suddenly the background went blue . Went to Filter Gallery & eith chose Plastic wrap or smudge stick . So that is my Love-in-the-Mist/Nigella in a pool . What do you think ? I have enclosed the original to get your views

I'm more than pleased when you ALL write to me about what you think about my boring flowers . So nice to have a wee chat when you live on your own Smile xx

Not sure about the plastic wrap on the flower, maybe just on the background?

Looks like you stayed up half the night to create this, Mavis Wink Whatever you did to make the background blue, it has worked a treat. The beautiful love-in-a-mist looks like it is made out of glass, what a wonderful presentation. Well done you Smile Carol
