Grass is cloned to cover canvas to be used for image.
step 2 of 9
Parts of spider source have been lassoed and brought on to a new canvas.
step 3 of 9
Flowers are created from the spider 'eyes' using the smudge tool to 'pull'out the petals. These will be given more shape by burning shadows with burn tool, and highlighted using the dodge tool.
step 4 of 9
Another type leaf is created using scaled-down duplicates of the leaf from source.
step 5 of 9
Yellow daisies are duplicated and added. Flowers will be scaled to various sizes and rotated as needed.
step 6 of 9
Some flowers are color changed w hue/sat tool and added to image. Next some of the larger multi-leaves are added, staggering among layers of the flowers and scaling some smaller than others. Using color/balance tool, some of the multi-leaves are a little more yellow, some have blue added, and some even a little red, so that they will not all look the same.
step 7 of 9
The red snake and the spider are added to the image.
step 8 of 9
Using smudge tool, some stems of grass are pulled up over the spider and worm. Layers must be merged in order to do this.
step 9 of 9
Some 'noise' using render/noise filter is added to flower layer. Finally the dodge and burn tools add final highlights and shadows.
