I added Bonnie's texture (isn't it pretty?) and used :
Used blending mode Hard Mix @ 75%. That gave me a cave like image so I pulled in another photo of mine, this kind of otherworldly looking fern frond:
I put it at Hard Light, 100%. I felt this cave is a place butterflies would congregate, so I had a photo of a monarch butterfly I took a couple years ago so I used 3 (three!) of them at Difference (thus the color changes in their placement) and I used a scrapbooking embellishment for the brown butterflies.
Somehow the circular aura appeared and was enhanced by the posterize effect and then the texture brought out those cold colors and the rays of light at the top of the 'cave' opening. Your thoughts?
