background tips
k, so i just recently started using gimp after a two year hiatus from a semester of digital design (we used photoshop) so now i am making a cover for my portfolio.

on my cover (attached image) i am trying to make the words and splatter effects take on the cover of the brick wall behind it, so it actually looks like it is painted on. can anyone give me any tips, or direct me to somewhere where i can figure this out? i have been looking for an answer for about an hour now Tongue the words are all in their own layers. (if that matters at all) thanks for the help!

You can also try to extract a bump map from the bricks (duplicate layer and desaturate) and apply that bump map to the overlay layers.

awesome, tyvm!
