Today I have a beautiful Fine Art texture set and a spooky Photoshop/PSE tutorial to go with it! The “Gravestone” texture set is a beautiful set of three overlays that you can use alone or layered over images. They look great on all types of images; spooky, baby portraits, landscapes, still life, etc.
Today I wrote a tutorial showing you how I used one of these Gravestone textures and a few free design elements to create this haunting Halloween-inspired image above.
Original images used in this post: (Forest, Flower Vase, Seagull).
CoffeeShop “Spooky Forest Photoshop/PSE Tutorial:
Open your forest image or download the one I used in this tutorial.
Open and drag and drop the CoffeeShop Gravestone 3 texture on top of the image and resize it to fit.
Put the texture layer in Multiply blending mode.
Add a moon image in Screen blending mode and adjust the opacity to taste. I used this moon and removed the black background.
Add some moonlight by adding a Levels adjustment layer and moving the middle slider up to brighten the image. Then fill the layer mask with black and use a soft white brush at 100% and paint in the layer mask to add the light around the moon.
The moon is too bright, so I copied the Gravestone 3 texture and dragged the copy up and clipped it to the moon layer. I put this texture layer in Hard Light blending mode, 65% opacity.
I selected my favorite bat from this image.
Then I dragged and dropped it over the moon, adjusted the size, and flipped it.
I want to make it more brown like the image, so I made another copy of the Gravestone 3 texture and clipped it to the bat and put it in Overlay blending mode.
I would love to see your edits using these textures/tutorial on my Facebook page.
