1. Create a flyer hat
Create a new file of 800 x 570 pixels; You can choose any size, but to get the same result as mine, you need to respect certain proportions. Next, create a new layer, call it “Background” and fill it with white.
On a new layer, add a background with fast food and place it at the top of the document.
Double click on the layer with the image of fast food and apply the layer style to it Inner Shadow (Inner shadow).
2. Add text on the board
Activate the tool Type Tool (T) (Text) and write, for example, Restaurant Menu. Use Bakery Font font. From this tutorial you can learn how to quickly install a font in Photoshop. For the convenience of working with text, we will use two text layers: one with the word restaurant, and the second – the menu.
To create a chalk effect, fill the text with white. If you want to learn how to create a realistic effect of writing in chalk in Photoshop, we suggest you look at the relevant materials.
Press Ctrl + T to slightly change the angle of the text.
Tool Pen Tool (P) (Pen) Draw several wavy lines on the sides of the word menu.
3. Add food icons
Depending on what dishes are in your intended restaurant, select the appropriate icons from a special set.
Next to each icon, add the name of the dish and the price. Here we use the font Sketch Block, but you can choose another. The text color is set to dark gray (# 302e2f).
4. Create a paper effect.
To create the effect that the leaflet is printed on rough paper, we use a special texture. Add it on a new layer above all previous layers. Set the texture blending mode to Multiply (Multiplication).
Above the texture we add an adjustment layer. Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Levels (Layer – New adjustment layer – Levels). Then we convert the adjustment layer into a clipping mask (Ctrl + Alt + G).
Add an adjustment layer Hue/ Saturation (Hue / Saturation) to slightly discolor the texture.
This is what a ready-made menu for a restaurant looks like.
5. Add wood texture
In the archive with a lesson in PSD format, you will find a special psd mocap in the form of a stack of paper on a gray background. Open it in Photoshop, double click on the “ADD BACKGROUND INSIDE” layer and in the opened smart object add any texture to the tree. Save (Ctrl + S) and see the result.
Also in the same file you can replace the picture from the menu with your own. To do this, edit the “DOUBLE CLICK TO OPEN THE FLYER” smart object in the same way as the background.
