Arrived to work this morning very excited about the next process which was to wet the backs of each of the pictures with water and rub off the paper to reveal the image. Easy Peasy - Right? I mean the gal in the video makes it look like it takes no time at all.
After trying the first one, then the next, and then the next one after that, I realized something very important... this was not going as easy as the vid shows. Thinking to myself - I must be doing something wrong. So I rewatched the video, then I read the comments below the video - and I saw one comment that said "if all the white won't come off then just get it as best as you can without pealing off the picture, then apply the mod podge and it will take care of the little white areas." Awesome! So that is what I did...
I thought this has GOT to work! Right?
Nope! Although this one looks cool - it did not work so well on the others. So... back to the drawing board (ie Photoshop).
I remembered that I had lots of wood grain backgrounds in my stock photos (doesn't everyone?) So I pulled up one of the pictures, placed the wood grain pic over it (in layers) and adjusted the Opacity of the Wood Grain Layer to 45% and Changed the field (to the left) of the Opacity to Vivid Light - YES! This works!
Here is the wood grain photo I used as the wood grain layer >> Download <<
