1- Open a transparent image of 800 by 650 pixels

2- Set your colour palette with two colours matching your main tube

My choice : Foreground : colour  efe9c9

Background : colour 787070

Set your foreground with a linear gradient as below :

 

3- Flood fill your transparent layer with your gradient

4- Add a new raster layer and select all

5- Activate the image " insignificance_by_ocd1c_stock.jpg" or an image of your choice, copy it and paste it into the selection

Selections / Select none

I have set the mode of that layer on to Overlay and lowered its opacity at 75
It is up to you to see which mode and which opacity suit you better.

6- Activate the image " MNK-textura020.jpg" or an image of your choice.

Layers / Promote Background layer

Activate your first image ( "6k5.jpg" pour moi), copy it and paste it into the selection onto your transparent layer

If your image is distorted that way, you can copy it as a new layer, invert your selection and suppress what is outside the frame.
