Create a Watercolor Effect using Photoshop Blend Modes and a Watercolor Overlay

Watercolor Overlays have been designed especially for those who love the soft, subtle look and feel of watercolor backgrounds. They’re great for monotone designs and adding a watercolor feel to your page, but are equally as effective when you layer them with other colors, gradients, or patterned designs.

Understanding how to use Blend Modes is essential when using Overlays, but it’s oh-so-easy. Here’s a quick video on how to use a watercolor overlay with a gradient layer.
