Thistle Applying and Blending Tutorial Promo

It seems after posting my country charm artworks,I've gotten quite a few e-mails requesting a tutorial on how I apply and blend textures, while I have made a tutorial on the subject before,I decided to make a detailed and lengthy tutorial.
This tutorial took me the last two days to compose, hope it answers some questions and can be of some help.
