Banneresque Colouring 1 part 2

Step Eight:
Now this can get confusing, so, just go slowly and don't skim! READ!
-> Hide the shape layer
-> Create a new layer (above the hidden shape layer)
-> hit cntrl+alt+shift+e on your keyboard. This merges everything you have below(all your coloring and what not) onto one layer). Great for easy editing.
-> Create a clipping mask. Now, you probably have no clue what the heck I just said, but never fear! for I wrote a tutorial about that too. :)

My results:

Isn't it pretty? So pretty. Me likey. However, I want more colour!

Step Nine: Le colouring, part Deux!
a) I took a large soft edges brush, 2oo px, and brush random big dots onto my image in the colour of #440000 and set that layer to screen.
My blobs:

My blobs, once set to screen, result:

See my blobs in action? Aren't they totally cool? Yeah, thought so. So cool enough I want to do MOREEEE!

Step nine:
Reallyyyy quickly, create a new layer, fill it in with #16102A and set it to Exclusion. Now this only enhanced the vintage look. But..I still want more colouring.

Step Ten:
Create a new layer, and take a 1oo px brush, and just draw some random splotches. However, I wanted some purple in the girl (on the right)'s hair, and some on the

door so I splotched some over there.
My purple blobs:

Their results:

Take a large soft edges brush, 3oo px, in the color of #020B7B, and just splot it right in the middle, and set it to Lighten. BOOM! And then there was blue! But, some got

on the painting and the man, so I erased that. Now its just on the door. Which is faboulas.

Step Twelve!: SO CLOSE!
I take this texture by Gender, copy/paste it onto my Document, and set it to lighten. however, it doesn't look right, so I darken it. I go Image >> Adjustments >> Curves,

and darken it using my graph thingie, until it looks good. (Sorry guys, I didn't save my settings.)
Once I got it to a setting I liked I just went a little crazy with the eraser and erased the parts I didnt like.


My texture edited:

Texture Results:

VOILA! Make sure that it has, once again, been set to Lighten, and YES! You're done. I added a brush and some text on mine, but go free! Add whatever you want!

Details are the best.
