Grunge Overlay Freebies

Here’s a little package of freebies for you. These overlays were almost included in the Glorious Grunge collection, but at the last minute I decided to save them to give away. You’ll want to use these with a Solid Color Adjustment Layer as a Clipping Mask to change the color of the overlays. There are instructions included in the download. (Download at the end of the post.)

Included in the package.

1. There is a grungy overlay made from a glass negative.

I’ve used the overlay in the following image. I used a brown color for the edge and then painted a bit of color over it.
I’ve also used the Esprit texture from the Artiste Collection.

Grunge Edge Overlay

I used the grunge edge overlay on this one.

2. A “spot” overlay of a grungy vintage French text page.

I’ve used it in this image. Look in the sky. You’ll want to play with the opacity and use a layer mask if needed.
This also uses an Edge Overlay from the Glorious Grunge Collection.

Uses the Spot Grunge Overlay — the text in the sky.

 3. A Grungy Vintage French Letter Overlay.

Here the grungy letter is shown with the grungy edge overlay above and the Archive 2 texture from the Glorious Grunge Collection.

4. Another Grunge Vintage French Letter.

A Few Notes About The Download

  • When you click the link, the download will start downloading into where ever you’ve set your downloads. This is often into a download folder.
  • The file name is:
  • File size is: 46.37 MB
  • Unzip the file by double clicking on it. Occasionally, zip files can become corrupt during downloads. If you are getting errors, try to download it again. I recommend the free Stuffit Expander for unzipping files.
  • Instructions for using the overlays is included in the download

Click the DOWNLOAD button to get the Freebies. Please share this page. xx

    Not sure how to sure overlay files, at all. I downloaded a few of your free overlay images, which download as PNG files. Do I have to save them as JPGS in Photoshop first, to be able to use them with JPG photos ?

    • Leslie Nicole April 18, 2014 at 6:10 pm #

      Hi Judy, definitely don’t save as a jpeg! This will flatten the file, which you don’t want. You can open the .png files in Photoshop. If you prefer you can save as Photoshop files, but it’s not necessary.

    Thank you so much for your generous gifts to us all…I am looking forward to experimenting! 🙂
