Have you checked out the two new texture sets that are now in my Mini-Sets Texture Shop? They are great for photo art creation - incorporating French text and some with a unique scalloped vignette. I've applied a few of them to photos so you can get an idea of the effects possible using them:
pdpa Heirloom Vignette texture from the pdpa Potpourri de Paris Texture Set.
Heirloom Vignette texture from Potpourri de Paris Texture Set, blended in Luminosity at 60% opacity.

Heirloom Vignette texture from Potpourri de Paris Texture Set - blended in Hard Light 70% opacity.
Blended in Screen at 85% opacity.

Je Chante Ma Foi texture from the Potpourri de Paris Texture Set, blended in Screen at 70% opacity.
To The Bone texture from the Designer Preferred Texture Set, blended in Hard Light at 85% opacity.
Linen Patch texture from the Potpourri de Paris Texture Set, blended in Screen at 80% opacity.
As you see most of my photographs blended best with these textures using either Screen Blend Mode or Hard Light Blend Mode. The one exception was the first flower/texture image where I used Luminosity Blend Mode.
Do check out these textures - I know you will love them!
