Ok gang. Here we go. I'll start a day early, since some of you have November first sooner than me.

If anyone wants to put in more just keep 'em coming. There are not rights or wrongs in this challenge. And if it's wrong, right it by putting an overlay! LOL

I was so excited about this side challenge that I made 13 new overlays over the weekend to share. Here are a few of my favorites...If you like 'em, use 'em!

Quick question. It has been a while sense I have not been a paying member here. How do I put things onto the website to post on this thread? If I can't then I will just have to figure something else out. Haha!

Question: How do you make these? Do you arrange the stuff in real life and take a picture, or paint them in real life and make a picture, or are they digital composites?

Kind of all of the above...the one on the left is a real photograph of a dirty surface taken with a lensbaby. Then I grunged up the edges with a grunge brush. The next two are a combination of old photographs from the Library of Congress online image collection (they are so old that they are royalty free); I clone out details in the image, maybe add more stuff like a scratchy layer (which would be from a real photograph I took of a scratched window, I have many in my overlays gallery), and maybe again grunge brushes on the edge. The last one is a scanned cover of very old sheet music, then other textures added. The net is a real photograph from Playingwithbrushes on Flickr. When I'm using multiple layers I combine them using a variety of blending modes, but most often 'multiply' when going for dark edges, 'overlay' when wanting fairly prominant detail, and 'soft light' when wanting less detail. Blend to taste, it is always different. Actually, I often put some level of description in the comments section for the image itself :-)

May I join in? I want to learn this creative type of imagery that you all do so well.
Never knew how to get the cool overlays. Thanks for sharing Colleen!! :)

Thank you! And now you discovered that I am a terrible reader, I so often miss the notes that people leave on their photos!

BTW, I don't have a clue how to use "grunge brushes". Would any of you have a link for a good tutorial about this? And possibly where I could get some of these brushes?

So ... with Royalty free images like those of the LofC, you can alter them at will (do whatever you want with them)?
