Handmade Overlays…

So, I’ve started to compile my own set of overlays.  I still use some from Florabella, but lately I’ve been shooting both textures and out of focus images for color overlays.  I used some of the color overlays for these images I shot on Christmas day… Our first white Christmas since I moved to NC.

The overlay concept is fairly easy, and in fact, once you get the layer into photoshop over your image, the only thing you have to do is change the blending mode to ‘overlay’  or play around with the other blending modes.

Here are a few, and I also added some scratches and texture using Florabella’s overlays as well as some textures I’ve shot of cement, stucco, and bark.

Hope your New Years and Christmas were fantastic, and I pray your 2011 is wonderful.
