Just playing around with the light blend modes and the light filters. The bird house has a photocopy layer and one of Nancy Donaldson's cemetery textures, both set to vivid light and 58% opacity.
This one has a duplicate layer with the Sumi-e filter set to vivid light, with opacity reduces just a bit.
This one has a duplicate layer set to overlay and a 50% gray layer (set it to overlay, it disappears) with the lens flare filter applied. I love the look of bright sun light on the water that it gives.
