Today I’m sharing a set of black and white distressed grunge textures that I created from different wooden textures I had leftovers from an old boat set. I think it’s really fun to mix different textures together to create something new and unique.
In this case I blended another old wood texture on top of my original one and set the layer mode to “Divide”. I then added a black and white color effect and increased the contrast by using a “Curves” adjustment layer.
These distressed textures are very useful to add a vintage, worn and grunge effect to your designs. You might have used similar textures a hundred times before, or maybe this is your first time.
It’s so easy to apply a free grunge texture to your design. Just open up your design in Photoshop or your favorite image editor, drag the texture over it and resize to fit. Then set the texture layer mode to “Overlay” or “Soft Light” and adjust the transparency as needed.
I hope you get some inspiration from these, and maybe use this simple technique to create your own textures. If you do, we’d love you to submit it to our free texture gallery! Until next week, have a great weekend.
