Blended layers in photoshop

I am sometimes a fan of making photographs that look as real as I can imagine the scene or the person actually looked. That usually translates into a sharp photograph, or at least that some part of the image is sharp. On the other hand, I sometimes care only about the look of the final image and do not care at all whether it mirrors the scene, or indeed looks like a photograph at all.

These two photographs were made by taking an image and in each case, pasting it over a scan of a sheet of art paper that I had soaked in coffee (and dried beofore scanning it!) then blended in photoshop – with the blending mode set to ‘multiply’.
