A freeform page with lots of blending.
Quilt photo on the left blended with an Impressario Transfer. On the right I used two FramedMasks No. 1
and a circle frame from ArtPlay Reverie, with another copy of the iceplant flower photo set to Normal but reduced capacity (this toned down the gold).
The rest of the photos are blended with masks and brushes, then Impressario Transfers (including the lace) to further the blending of the background.
My intent with a page like this is to set the background "stage", then pop the subjects on top.
Two extractions of Oz done with iPhone, then a photo of Cher clipped to a Frame Mask.
I made a custom cluster by extracting the eucalyptus pods (used the Quick Selection tool and this went way easier than I expected.
