you cant see much with the thumbnail...please FULL VIEW!

This wallpaper is dedicated to my mom! She loved the scan, so I decided to make the wall especially for her.
I know its overly simple *cringes*. I hope you guys like it anyways. I don't know why I called it a kiss from a rose, since the character's name isnt rose. well, i suppose its because I put roses in the wall. First, let me explain how I made this wall. there are only 6 layers total. why? because I put a layer behind the original scan and filled it with the scan colors. The entire wall was made using the eraser brush. it was very hard because it was like...working backwards. I dunno, its hard to explain. but I did try to put alot of work into this thing. just one rose took me half an hour to do. Maybe Im just slow X-O. it was wierd though, because I couldnt afford to make big mistakes and try to correct them later by just deleting the layer they were on. I dont think i ever want to try using the eraser technique again. -_- But it was still fun! I loved the scan at first sight. I think its just so beautiful. I cant believe I havent seen hundreds of walls made from this scan. its just gorgeous. I would love to see other people's walls made from the scan i used. The hardest thing was thinking about the background and stuff. The scan itself was in a wierd style..because she doesnt have outlines and shes not fully colored in. so I couldnt exaclty have her outside or in a bedroom.. I started on another version of the wall, but quit halfway because I didnt like that version. And I also wanted to put roses in the wallpaper....Im kind of rambling right now because I have a major headache. Erm...so anyways, when I finished, it still looked boring so I added a little texture and some faint rose brushes in her hair. Everything in this wallpaper (besides the original scan) was made by hand. The rose brushes and the decorations were all made by me. I know roses dont have hanging vines..but I liked them so I put them in.

Well, enjoy! Comments and critiques are appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT :: UPDATED! This new version is less blurry. Hope you guys like this version better. Here is the blurry version if anyone wants to see


The other version of the wall...actually, now I cant decide which version I like better. :\

    It's really blurry.
    It could of been nicer if it were more crisp though, nice idea.

    it is so soft, nice peacefull feeling.
    For this wall i think it is nice that it is a bit blured because it adds that
    soft feeling.
