Texture Design Workshop – Creating a Header

Another one I did was Bleak Sky, to me this had connotations of crows and stark landscapes with quite dull colours. So I found two images I felt portrayed this bleak atmosphere and used the layer blending to combine them to get this:

I am very happy with the result of this header, I feel it works better than the Victorian Underworld one because the images I used where much simpler it ment that I could have more control about where I placed them with each other and also because they were colour images the layer blending options were considerably different from one to the next compared to the black and white images I used before.
