Grab some free TTV borders. Try Noise and Dust Through the Viewfinder and Quality Textures and TTVs. And remember who made it so you can credit them later.
Open up a photograph and a few of the textures you downloaded in Photoshop.
Choose one texture to begin with. Select all of it (Ctl A), Copy it (Ctl C), and Paste it (Ctl V) on your photo. It will look wonky.
In the Layers Palette click on the layer you just pasted and in the dropdown menu above it change the Layer Property from Normal to Multiply. Now it looks better.
Now Transform (Ctl T) the texture to fit your photo. Hold down the shift key as you
make it bigger or smaller to keep its proportions intact. Then press the Enter key.
Flatten the image (Layers>Flatten Image) and Crop away any excess.
Before and After
This last one is an example of how the tutorial can be used with any texture.

I'm going to pretend to organize my emphemera when really scouring for my own textures to use.
Happy playing and downloading! Wouldn't these be cool to print off and use in your journal! :)
I can't wait to use this one.Try on different TTV textures to see what works best with your image.
