In this tutorial we will create simple and at the same time creative wallpapers using Photoshop.

Resources

Step 1. Create a new document with the size of 1200x800px. Fill the background with the color # efdcb4.

Step 2. We import the paper texture to the working paper.

Move on Filter – Render – Lighting Effects (Filter – Rendering – Lighting Effects).

Apply the filter 3-4 times.

Step 3. Now write the word “One” font AvantGarde-Demi, size – 150px, color – # 4d1a1b.

Step 4. We write the second word “Mind”. Size – 220px, color – # 2b2b2b. Make sure the letter M touches with the letter E.
Adjust the position and size (CTRL + T).

Step 5. The third word is “To”. Size – 35px, color – #ffffff, opacity (opacity) – 50%.

Step 6. The next word is “Create”. Size – 150px, color – # 2b2b2b.

Step 7. “Designs”. Size – 200px, color – # 381414. Place the word in the lower right part of the workspace.

Step 8. Via Rectangle tool (Rectangle) (U) draw a line up from the letter “O”. Color – # 4d1a1b.

Step 9. Now color # 2b2b2b draw a line from the letter “D” in the word “Mind”.

Go to Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlay (Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlap).

Then we call the gradient parameters (double click on the gradient itself) and set the following colors:

Step 10. Now create a rectangle from the letter “D” in the word “Designs”. Color – # 381414.

Apply layer style to rectangle Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap)
Blend mode (Overlay): Normal
Opacity: 100%
Style: Linear
Angle (Angle): 0
Scale (Scale): 100%
For the gradient choose colors # 2b2b2b and # 191919.

Step 11. Create a few more words in the same font. Size – 35px, Smooth (Smooth), color – # 4d1a1b, opacity (opacity) – 50%.

Step 12. Activate Vertical Type Tool (Vertical text (T). Font – AvantGarde-Demi, size – 20px, Smooth (Smooth), color – white.

Move on Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow (Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow).

Then Layer – Layer Style – Color Overlay (Layer – Layer Style – Overlapping with Color) and choose the color # 411718.

Step 13. Now we write the word “Control”. Font – AvantGarde-Demi, size – 35px, Smooth (Smooth), color – white.

Move on Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow (Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow).
Blend mode (Overlay mode): Multiply (Multiply)
Opacity: 75%
Angle (Angle): 120
Distance (distance): 0
Choke: 0
Size: 5
Then Layer – Layer Style – Color Overlay (Layer – Layer Style – Overlap Color) and select color # 464242.

Step 14. The word “Your”. Font – AvantGarde-Demi, size – 35px, Smooth (Smooth), color – white.

Move on Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow (Layer – Layer Style – Inner Shadow).
Blend mode (Overlay mode): Multiply (Multiply)
Opacity: 75%
Angle (Angle): 120
Distance (distance): 0
Choke: 0
Size: 5
Then Layer – Layer Style – Color Overlay (Layer – Layer Style – Overlap Color) and select the color # 2d1010.

Step 15. Now import the image with the brain to the working document.

Activate Magic eraser tool (Magic Eraser) (E) and remove the black area around the brain.

Change blending mode (overlay mode) layer with the brain on Darken (Replacing dark), reduce opacity (opacity) up to 50%.

Step 16. This step is optional, so it is not necessary to perform it. If you are satisfied with the result, you can stop. Otherwise, continue on. Select all layers with text (holding CTRL. click on each layer) and go Layer – New – Group from Layers (Layer – New – Group of layers). Activate Eraser tool (Eraser) (E), choose some grunge brush from the standard set of brushes, lower the opacity and flow (push) and start to randomly erase the text.

Then do the same with all the rectangles.
The result of the lesson:

That’s all!
