I've always wanted to try to add a texture to a photo in Photoshop Elements. After I tucked the kids in bed tonight, I gave it a try. I took the picture below ...
...and placed the texture (below) on top. I lowered the opacity of the layer so the boys would show through. Then I lowered the amount of blue in the clothes so they would look a little more rustic. I burned around the edges to give it more depth. I also removed almost all of the texture from the boys' faces.
I can see the flaws, but with more practice I hope to get this right one day. I'm havin' fun in the meantime!
