Step 8 It’s vital to have independent Layer masks to make a series of separate adjustments to the queen shape. While selecting our initial group of layers, hit Cmd/Ctrl + G three times to create a series of enveloping layer groups. Then add a blank Layer mask to each of these groups.


Step 9 Download and install Chris Spooner’s spatter brushes from bit.ly/eITWZe. On the Layer mask of the innermost group, use them to paint some parts in black. This will mask some parts of the queen shape. Bear in mind you want people to be able to recognise the shape, so use this sparingly.


Step 10 Here you will need the spraypaint brushes from bit.ly/gl3e6E. On the next two Layer masks, use them multiple times to damage the shape. For more control, you can click on the link between the group and the Layer mask. This allows you to rotate or scale the Layer mask independently from the group.
