Designing Frosted Effects Wallpaper

Frosted Wallpaper - 2
There is a filter that will give us the frosted look that we need. Go to Filter menu - Distort - Glass, and adjust the filter settings to your liking. The result would be similar to shown here.

Create another fractal, copy it to photoshop, invert (from black to white) and move to the edge of image, so that only part of fractal is visible.

Repeat 4 times :)

Frosted - Making of - Step 9

Photoshop has nice shape tool (U key) which I use very often. Create your own snowflake shape, or choose from custom shapes menu. Then apply some bevel and
shadow (not much though).

You can then use small white brush to add some smaller snowflakes, with the same layer effects (bevel and shadow).

Frosted - Making of - Step 11

We're almost ready! There is only one important step left. Merge entire file into single layer (you can hit Ctrl-Shift-E but make sure to save a copy of PSD before that, in case you need to make changes later). Then, duplicate layer (Ctrl-J) and apply Gaussian Blur filter. Then, set this layer opacity to 30-40%. This will give us nice "glow" effect.
