■ Click the ornament layer in the Layers palette to make it the active layer, and then choose Layer >-Duplicate Layer to get the Duplicate Layer dialog box. Type paint layer in the As box and click OK.

Next we blend the bottom two layers, make an adjustment and flatten just those two layers.

■ Click the Hide Layer icon in the paint layer layer to hide the layer.

■ Click the ornament layer to make it the active layer. The Layers palette now looks like Figure 4.12.

■ In the Layers palette, select Multiply as the Blend mode.

■ Choose Layer ^ Merge Down (Ctrl+E) to merge the ornament layer with the textured background layer.

■ Choose Image ^ Adjustments ^ Hue/ Saturation (Ctrl+U) to once again get the Hue/ Saturation dialog box. Click the Colorize box to turn it on. Set Hue to 22, Saturation to 8, and
