2. Make a new color fill layer with #251f29. Set it to Exclusion 85%.



3. Duplicate your background layer & bring it to the top. Set it to Soft Light 41%.

Whites: +2, +13, -5, -27
Neutrals: -2, +2, -2, -10

11. Now add this texture. Set it to Lighten 100%.



12. Add this texture. Set to Lighten 100%.



13. Take this texture. Set to Lighten 77%.



14. I'm just doing this so the notepaper effect doesn't look weird. xD Make a new blank layer. Go to Image > Apply Image & set the Blending to Normal. Then go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal.



15. Take this texture. Set to Darken 100%.



16. Add your text/brushes/whatever, & you're done :]
