Been having issues with brushes and layer masks in Photoshop.

When I paint over an image with any color or brush and paint over same area the color inverts. I've set brushes to default settings but same issue.
Then there is the layer mask problem. For example, I'm swapping backgrounds. When I want to paint black over that mask nothing happens. Brushes are set to 100% opacity and flow. When I use the white that works but if I paint over same area the original background comes back. This has been a huge problem I hope I'm not alone here.

Are you sure there isn't a blend mode other than normal in the brush options bar? http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...
