Before we begin, let’s take a look at the image we will create. We will draw the layout of the site in grunge style. Now it is popular in web-design, so the lesson will be useful to many.
Step 1. Create a new document size 1024×768 pixels. Fill the background with the color shown in the image below. Take the tool Rectangle tool (Rectangle) and draw a rectangle. It should occupy the upper half of the canvas.
Fill the rectangle with the color as shown. Rasterize the rectangle. For this we go Layer – Rasterize – Shape (Layer – Rasterize – Figure).
Rename the rectangle layer to “Top layer. Using Lasso Tool (Lasso), draw the shapes on the underside of the rectangle. These will be paper breaks. Click Delete.
This is a quick way to draw breaks. You can use a layer mask if you wish.
Step2. Create a new layer below the layer “Top layer“. Choose a tool Brush tool (Brush). Choose a brush Soft mechanical diameter 100 pixels and # 484536 colors. Use this brush to create a shadow on the layer “Top shadow“.
Next we apply some layer styles. You need to apply a white outer stroke to the “Top layer“Size 1 pixel. Next, apply a texture mapping, with a soft light blending mode and a standard texture. Rust flakes.
Step3. Create a new layer, above the layer “top layer“. Create a layer mask. For the same brush set color # d8ce9d. Brush walk around the edges.top layer»To create a scuff.
Step4. Create a rectangle, next Edit – Free Transform (Editing – Free Transformation). Rotate the rectangle as shown in the image. Further Edit – Transform – Warp (Editing – Transformation – Deformation). Bend the lower right corner, as shown.
Step5. Using the tool Pen tool (Pen), draw a shadow under the rectangle. Apply to shadow Gaussian blur on 5 pixels. Set the layer blending mode to Multiply (Multiplication).
Step6. Next you need to hold Ctrl and click on the rectangle to select it. Let’s go Select – Modify – Contract – 10px (Choice – Modification – Compress – 10px).
Create a new layer above this and fill the selection with white. Layer above have a photo you like. We clamp Alt and click on the layer palette between the photo layer and the white rectangle layer to create a layer mask.
This way your photo will fit neatly into the rectangle.
Use Polygonal Lasso Tool(Polygonal Lasso) for drawing masking tape. Create a new layer and fill it with white. Set layer transparency 47%. For this layer, set the inner stroke to the size 1 pixel, # e4dec3 colors. Stroke Transparency 66%. Duplicate the ribbon layer and move as shown in the image.
Step7. Use Brush tool (B) (Brush) to create a shadow on both pieces of tape. Settings in the screenshot below.
Step8. Write the title of the site. I used Bernard MT Condensed # 7a745e colors, size 72 pixels. Write the main navigation elements.
Rasterize the font. Select Erase tool(E) (Eraser) using a set of brushes TB_Grunge Brush randomly erase the inscriptions to give them a shabby look.
If you don’t like destructive methods, you can use a layer mask to create the same effect.
Step9. Enlarge the canvas and with the tool Pen tool(B) (Pen) draw an arrow. Shred it as a step back.
Step10. Using the same technique, create a search area, rss icon. I also added some text to the main navigation elements.
Step 11 Our heder is ready. We have the main body of the site. Now let’s draw a footer.
Choose a tool Rectangle tool(Rectangle) and draw a rectangle the height of 40 pixels at the bottom of the layout. Fill it up # 302e26 color. Then rasterize it. Walk Layer – Rasterize – Shape (Layer – Edit – Figure).
Using the same technique as when working with the “top layer” layer, “tear” the top of the rectangle. Set the layer styles for this rectangle as shown in the screenshots below.
The final image. Now almost everything is ready. It remains only to add three white rectangle. Set them to drop shadows in layer styles. Add three images to your taste. Adjust them to the size of the rectangles using a layer mask. That’s what we did.
