 I enjoyed the process of changing Riley's picture from the original one at the top. Here's the steps I took to get the finished look in the 2nd photo:

1. Yester-Color Effect
2. Paint Texture
3. Increase Saturation
4. Screen Blend Mode

I guess it looks like he's having a melt-down in the summer sun!
