I used one floral background for all the elements in this. I can’t believe how perfectly the kaleidoscope effect worked out with only a few random tries and then some tweaking. Sometimes I just can’t find the right one and, like Cassel taught us, you can’t go backwards when you’re randomizing. For the frame, I cropped the original pic and applied a seamless tiling effect, then flood filled. Lots of beveling going on; I’m getting more courageous the more I learn.
Great work, Britt! Love those poor birds stuck in the cage.
