This has a wide range of "brush" capacities; you can also create your own. This example uses: crayon08; orientation 10,360 value; size 10,10,20 random; placement randomly density 40;  color noise 20; background transparent.  The image here is over a white background, but the actual layer is transparent.
... example 1, layer 3
layer 3; work on colors:

lightness saturation -30,40; use color curves to adjust colors; use color select tool to remove darker areas; "smudged"  by  hand  to smooth it out...

as above, the image here is over a white background, but the actual layer is transparent.

... example 1, layers 1 + 4
layers1 + 55% 3

Set opacity to 55% and combine with the base image.
... example 1, layer 5
layer 5

I intensified contrast, colors, and used the eraser tool here; again, the actual layer is transparent.

... example 1, layers 1 + 5
layers 1 + 30%/55% 5

The opacity of layer 5 here is about 30% on the left picture, about 55% on the right.
