playing with texture

i first photo (top left)
is of my encaustic painting from last week
in photoshop i desaturated the colour (top right)
the bottom two have photo filters on them

to see what the texture would do
i opened a photo of a tree added the b/w texture on top
and after trying on all the blending modes
i settled on exclusion

with a bit a script and a grunge frame from shadowhouse
blending modes set to darken and linear burn
and there you have it

I love how well exclusion worked. It can be so interesting using blending modes other than the soft light, which of course seems always to work.
I have been having sucess lately with the vivid light mode
