The background is made of two different desktop images compiled and adjusted to look like a plant filled forest or garden path, complete with blossoming bushes and a swirly vine tree. The image can serve well as a book cover as well as backdrop, and adds an instant spring time feeling.
Below, the picture dearly needed clean up. The tinted paper with shadowed areas of the original (left) muted out the figure and is good for making the picture look old, but I wanted it to stand out. So I cut the figure from the backdrop and put her on pure white, adjusted levels, and there we go clean and vibrant (right).
