My daddy sent me a whole bunch of photos from my childhood - I guess he's cleaning out. There are so many that are damaged and faded with age. Ugh, some are nearly 40 years old (am I that old?). I scanned this photo of myself and my brother. It's a bad photo to begin with - badly composed with the subjects so far away. But there's something about it. After trying to repair the damage and fix the color (there's a pink area down the middle), I still wasn't satisfied. However this happy accident occurred - a perfect mix of photo, background paper, and blend mode created this. This happened when I changed the blend mode to hard light! I used Cloudscape Paper Mini and I did a bit of erasing of the photo with Brush Set: Time Traveler - Clouds Biggie to blend.
