I overlaid a texture from Wetzel & Company (MSWP-36) after converting it to black & white. ThenI added a levels layer to darken the whole photo, masking the butterﬂy and making a bit of a god beam to shine on it. Then I copied that levels layer and changed the blend mode to dissolve. The opacity is set very low so the effect is very subtle. And last, the text from Teri Martin’s quote subscription list.
