Beneath the Surface Textures 1 and 2


Beneath the Surface 1 Texture

Beneath the Surface 1 texture was created mainly to achieve a stressed out and grungy effect to the background when applied over an image.  Here, I applied "Beneath the Surface1" texture on top of the thistle image, then set the layer mode to "Linear Burn" and the opacity at 75%. Don't be afraid to experiment with different layer modes and opacity levels.


Beneath the Surface 2 Texture

Beneath the Surface 2 texture was created along the same lines as texture 1 above, just more colors and grunge.  Here, I applied "Beneath the Surface2" texture on top of a photo from last winter of some trees, then set the layer mode to "Multiply" and the opacity at 78%. Don't be afraid to experiment with different layer modes and opacity levels.

  19. Thank you so much for making your work available at no cost, I am very grateful. I still haven't worked out how to make my own textures, so finding yours was a real blessing. I love what you've done. I've used one of your textures twice with fabulous results - you can see one of them here:
