This is a pic of one of the purple pansies I dug up from out front. I grabbed a shot of it after I dug it out of the trash bin heading for compost.
This is not the exact shot. But I merged the pansy shot with a pretty Bokeh texture from http://shadowhousecreations.blogspot.com/2012/05/shadowhouse-creations-watermark-pattern.html that I have been waiting to use and this was the perfect opportunity.
This is the texture I used:

I gently erased the texture on the flower and the greenery a bit to end up with this:
One final crop to a square and it was off to my ETSY shop
So no more pansies until next winter unless I get some cropping up in my compost heap! I called this "Winter Fades" Until the next adventure ~ Michele
