Okay, I'm one day early, but I could not wait to post this fabulous free texture just for you. This texture can be used in most blend modes as you will see in the examples I have provided below. It adds depth, drama and intensity in several of the blend modes but you can still achieve a desaturated look by using "Screen". I love what this versitile, old-worldy texture does for my photographs and I am sure you will too! Enjoy!
