Photos with Textures

After posting a few of my photos with textures on the gallery at Jessica Sprague, I got asked for a tutorial on how I do this. I created a onea ges ago which I am adding to this post. I really just tend to play around adding different textures to a photo, going through the blend modes, re-arranging the order of the textures, changing hue and saturation. That's all there is to it! Hopefully my tutorial will help you out a bit. Otherwise please contact me if you need further help! I find all my textures on Flickr - check out my page on Flickr (username is Veevs3) as all my texturised photos are there and I list out whose textures I used.
