Tutorial - Grunge Overlays

I love working with grungy overlays when I make papers, and I wanted to share with you a little tutorial on how to use the Transparencies overlay

1 Open/make a paper

2 Add one of the transparencies overlay to your paper

3 Make a new layer on top of this one and recolor the black (Ctrl+G) then (Ctrl+E), try using your background color, for a distressed look

4 You can also add a other transparencies overlay, and recolor that like in step 3, but this time use a very light version or an almost white color for a sanded down look.

5 and one or more of the transparencies overlay, with different colors or blend modes for a unique look

6 Now add a texture, to make the paper look even more realistic. And now you are done :)

I have made a little sample for you to work with, if you wanna give it a try.
