i often work quite cumbersome in achieving a certain result (to tell the truth: too lazy to read or explore instructions...). same here. i found the grid background somewhere online and thought that looks awesome. couldn´t figure out how to get my photos into the rounded edges. so i gave my pics a black ttv-frame first, then i could fiddle them into the black placeholder. sure there are better methods;) but as i said: cumbersome. that´s what i am sometimes. but i get my results;)
the colored splashes are brushes, easy to make.
when i shot the blossom photos in spring i had no idea that i would dig into photo-editing this year. and i enjoy it so much!
