kdcintx......it appears that the color fill layers have basically toned your image and the dreamy effect was lost. I never thought about adding this effect to a black and white image. I tend to doubt that it would produce the effect we're after here......at least using this tut.

Thank you Helen for this challenge. I am really enjoying finding out all the different ways you can adapt this and the effects that you can achieve. Instead of using a Bokeh effect as per the tutorial I added a watercolour texture from Brusheezy. Photo from morguefile.
