March 2009 Calendar Wallpaper

 
Hello and welcome in making March 2009 calendar tutorial. In this tutorial we will make a March Calendar Wallpaper using Photoshop CS2 and some of its possibilities. March is the first month of the spring and it gives a wonderful feeling when everything just melts and the sun is shining. So this is why I've chosen this theme for my calendar.

Create 1024x768px file. Well if you have a larger monitor resolution maybe you should create another document with other dimensions.

I've filled the background with something like yellow color.

I have a color wheel here. By the way you should study the colors well if you want to become a master painter: color variations and balance.

I have a reference for the color wheel because I really don't remember the order of the colors (for speed means).

Now create a copy of color wheel layer.

A little madness: go to the Hue saturation adjustment: drag the hue button and see how the wheel is really spinning).
