Bonnie’s challenge was to use her texture “Signed and Sealed”. I used the texture on quite a few images before I ended my experiment with a brown passionfuit leaf. I extracted the leaf from the background, place it over the texture, then placed the texture and used the Transform tool to distort it to sit on the leaf and brushed away some parts, then I used the Distort/Polar coordinates filter on this this layer. Hid this layer and used the same filter on Layer 1 (the texture background), merged these layers and added a black layer and brushed away on merged layer to leave the oval shape. I then put this into Topaz Lab filter and used the HDR filter.
I wonder what you see in the image?
