Tune in to the #phantomvariant hashtag on twitter every Wednesday around midnight to find out what the next week's variant will be and where you can get it!

Hmmm... I kinda combined a few tutorials, let me see if I remember right...

- Open image.
- Create new layer with textured, worn paper (can require rotating, stretching, combining multiple pieces, etc.). Paper can be found or purchased online or scanned in, something kinda yellowed and rust-colored a bit.
- Multiply -> adjust opacity to where you like.
- Create new layer, select all and fill with intense yellow at 5-20% depending on what you like.
- Scan in stress and creases from old books. I used old paperback novels with mostly black/dark surfaces so it's easier to trap and isolate creases, getting as much of the white paper texture underneath as I could.
- Create a new layer with creases and folds and stretch, rotate, copy and paste according to where you want it. Adjust crease/fold color in hue/saturation or selective color
- Find a good, neutral set of grunge brushes or create your own, set to low opacity with color of whatever you selected for crease/folds and paint some wear and tear in areas. I also went with more of a dirt color for the brushes and rotated often for variation.
- Flatten image and I think that's it, if I remember right for the basics. I went in and tweaked areas, colors and so on depending on what was going on in the cover at any given time.

Hope that's useful!
