These tiles can be used to create borders or an overall pattern as fill.
The original tiles and their matching embossed overlays can be used seperately or together...and of course you can add plenty of other effects too :)
The Embossed Overlay Tiles
I usually use these with a blend mode of "overlay" or "soft light" but it is worth experimenting with various modes.The effect will vary significantly with different depths of colour in the layer below. For very light and very dark colours I duplicate the overlay.

Like others in our Touch of Class group, I have more than a just a drop of Scottish blood :)
I've used for inspiration an Art Nouveau wallpaper design by William Morris although he certainly wouldn't recognise it!
I have found that I often have to adjust the colouring of old photos a tad too, to make them blend nicely.

I've included 4 damask textured period backgrounds, a large .png tree brush and 3 different groups of frames in this Family Tree Kit.[Only one in the preview]
The groups of frames can be used in multiples to extend your family :)
In the preview above and example below, I have used the tree silhouette brush on a separate layer and changed the blend mode to multiply. It is worth experimenting to get a look that you prefer.
All files are 300dpi and background pages are 3600 X 3600.
