Today, I experimented with Clipping Masks. They are clever little things. They can be used with Text or Brushes or Pictures. They can probably be used endlessly, but I just haven’t learned all the neat tricks to use with them!
I started out by creating a new document in Photoshop. Then I added a new layer. I grabbed one of my grunge brushes and painted on the new layer. I then added some layer styles to give the brush some texture and depth. I opened a photo putting it on the layer above my grunge brush layer. I then right click on the photo layer and chose clipping mask. I moved the photo to the position where I wanted it. I then added a layer mask to the photo so that I could brush away the hard edges of the photo. This blending them into the grunge brush layer better.
