At the high school, outside the art room door, I find remnants of myriad artistic projects. Layers of color, random splotches of paint, stenciled shapes. No rhyme or reason, no overall plan.
And yet, there is a certain beauty to be discovered in the jumbled chaos. Teenage hieroglyphics, sending a message to the universe: We were here – creating, exploring, searching. Finding ourselves.
Just like me.
- Process The Coffeeshop Blog Storybook Vintage Action, deleting the Color Fill layer – this keeps the whites white
- Duplicate the background layer, moving it above the Vintage action group. Set blend mode to Soft Light
- Add the Autumn Burst texture, setting blend mode to Color Burn and opacity to 52%
- Add a levels adjustment to increase overall contrast
Here is the original image and the layers palette:
