Frosted Wallpaper

Now let's make these 2 layers blend with each other.

Got this I'm going to use a mask and a black to white gradient to hide a part of the image.

When you think you're done merge these 2 layers together.

Like in the earlier stages create a copy of this layer – you should have only 1.

I will use a filter to the top of my copies.

Now almost every design needs a text to be there. Note that I've created and have hidden some of the effects using a rounded gradient on the mask.

Moreover I've created a text layer between background layers (see the screenshot) so the top layer mask has an effect on the text too.

See how the text blends at the right side.

I've also dropped some king of logo interpretation. It can be definitely be some object or another text line, everything you thing feats there.

Next what I did I've rasterized the text layer and I've created a copy of it.

On the lower text copy use a Gaussian blur.

See the effect in details.

In combination with logo; See there is no distortion in the center.

And another thing: the middle part of the text pops out and looks sharp. I've also used mask to hide the sides of my text.

And our final step will be putting best tutorial site) marking in the lower bottom corner.

Hope you learn something from this.

Very cool effect. Bookmarked. But one complaint I have about your tutorial is that it's not as clear and concise as it should be for us novices.
