Designing with flowers can sometimes be frustrating especially if you are a flower lover like myself and tend to get a bit carried away! Here are a few subtle tricks for you to still use those floral intensive patterns and elements without loosing focus on your photos.
Once I had the selection in place, I also changed the opacity of the paper to add more subtlety. Simply adjust the opacity by first making sure the paper layer is selected and then change the percentage of opacity at the top right of the layer palette.
You can use the drop down button to activate the slider bar for your adjustment or you can simply type in a percentage. For the example layout, I adjusted the opacity to .
If you still have the urge to add more flowers, you could try adding an element that is similar in shape to a flower. Try to look for different elements that resemble a flower to get that certain look you are after.
I happened to use an asterisk as a makeshift flower. It still had the shape I was after and most importantly it was very subtle. By placing it in a non-prominent area, the asterisk blends in more and lends itself more to being a flower.
Can t wait to see what you come up with!
