Free Grungy Texture from SkeletalMess
(And a smidgen of Photoshop Elements erasing...)
Grunge Pink: Peony in Love.
I call this the 'Normal Erase Mode'.
- Download the largest size Flickr image of the texture you are currently in love with (there are frames, grungy, bricks, wood grains...)
- Layer it over the top of your favorite image in need of some PSE love.
- Choose the best blending mode.
When you mouse over the drop down menu in the layers palette it says:
Set the blending mode for the layer
There are 25 different modes! From Hard Light to Color Burn.
Have fun playing with them all!
I don't totally understand the whys and hows, but it has to do with the light effects and blending them?
- Last: use the eraser tool set to the soft round airbrush, around size 400, and 30-60% opacity. Begin erasing the middle (or focal point) and maybe the edges and corners. That's what I did anyway... Email me if you have questions!
I had such a hard time choosing just one!
I love the different 'feeling' each one gives.
Antique, Victorian, Eerie, Modern...
Which one do you like the best?
Romantic Peonies make me think about this song...
Everybody (wants to love)
