Step 9
Set the ‘Mouse circuit outer’ layer’s blending mode to Screen. Clip a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, setting Hue = 175, Saturation = 25 with the Colorize preset checked. Set the ‘Mouse circuit inner’ blending mode to Soft Light. Clip a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with Hue = 218, Saturation = 25, with the Colorize preset checked.

Step 10
Set the ‘Mouse top inner’ blending mode to Saturation. Clip a Hue/ Saturation adjustment layer, with Hue = 182, Saturation = 25, with the Colorize preset checked. Set the ‘Mouse top outer’ blending mode to Overlay. Clip a Hue/ Saturation adjustment layer setting the Hue to 302 and the Saturation to 25 with the Colorize preset checked.

Step 11
Make a start on the background by first selecting R = 184, G = 175, B = 217 as your background colour. Create a new A4 portrait document in RGB mode, 300dpi with the Background Content set to Background Colour. Open Distress_1.jpg and Shift + drag the layer icon into your new canvas, labelling the layer ‘Polaroid 1’. Both files share the exact pixel dimensions, so Shift + dragging pin-registers the new layer. Now set the blending mode to Soft Light and lower the opacity to 60%.
