Never thought about using "multiply" - works like a charm - except it darkens the gradient colors as you add more "stuff" to your project

Hi Janice ...

If it gets too dark ... do a copy merged. Sit it on top and change that blend mode to screen ... that will lighten up everything

Oh and if it makes it too light just lower the layer opacity

Hi stevenm,

I did what you suggested. I added a H/S adjustment layer. Then I changed the blend mode to Screen and applied the Glowing Edges filter.

Thanks! This is so much fun (and addictive too)!

You change the gradient mode to Difference and keep drawing gradients to get this result. This started out as the "violet,green,orange".
