I have been creating flower composites. I take one flower selected in Photoshop (made easier if you photograph it against white which I did not on these two!)… and then layering many copies of it. Take each copy and resize, rotate, etc… until you like the composition.
You can totally cover the canvas with the image as in the Iris below, or leave space and add a background. I added lilypads blurred behind the waterlilies but ended up changing the color of them so unrecognizable now as lilypads.
With SmartPhotoEditor I can then take it way further. Just printed this one of a purple iris on canvas from MasterColor Labs in Greensboro, NC. SmartPhotoEditor can work as a standalone program or as a plugin for Photoshop.
