I stumbled onto something while creating this image…I was hoping that the fractalius plugin would give me something similar to the original Convergence image, but it didn’t. So in playing around with the different effects I tried “emboss” which turned everything gray but looked like shiny mercury or silver. I played around with the different blending modes with the embossed layer above the flower image and nothing really caught my eye. When I moved the embossed layer below the flower, and used the “Color” blending mode…it gave me this almost opalescent look to the image which spread lots of joy into this body of mine.
