Marine Wallpaper - Special Effects

 
This new tutorial we'll have to learn creating a "pictorial background", luminescent ornaments, create an own brush of bubbles shape. We'll see also how to move off the undesirable color from the picture and use the Layer Mask.

Designing Marine Wallpaper

For the beginning we have to create a new document of standard size wallpapers: File - New (ctrl+n).

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Then paint the layer in a darker color, selecting previously the Paint Bucket Tool.

Select after that a brush named Heavy Smear Wax Crayon out of a standard set of brushes "Dry Media Brushes":

Now we have to change its adjustments in the Brushes window the way it is demonstrated below:

Represent now the background, using several colors and pointed motions, like if you would use a sponge:

Create a new layer: Layer - New - Layer and represent on it an arbitrary ornament, making use of the Pen Tool and Fill Path command:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Make a copy of this layer: Layer - Duplicate Layer (ctrl+j) and the ornament on it should be smaller a little. Turn it around with Edit - Free Transform (ctrl+t).

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Merge down the layers: Layer - Merge Down and start using the Shape Tool (holding the shift button) to add several standard ornaments of different sizes (in this case we'll add the circles).

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Now we have to change the Hard Round brush's adjustments the way it is indicated in the tables below:

Introduce with the same brush several wavy lines:

Insert on a new layer have several small squares, selecting previously the Rectangular Tool and the command Edit - Free Transform (ctrl+t).

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Then make a copy of the squares' layer (ctrl+t) and blur out the copy, using the following options: Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur.

Designing Marine Wallpaper

We have to copy the ornament's layer and blur out the copy with another value:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Place the blurred copies under the basic ornaments' layers and change their colors, using Image - Adjustments - Hue/Saturation (ctrl+u):

Then I've combined all the layers containing the ornaments: Layer - Merge Down (ctrl+e) and turned a little the new layer (ctrl+t), made a copy of it (??trl+j), placed the copy under the basic layer and blurred it out, using a different filter this time: Filter - Blur - Radial Blur.

Designing Marine Wallpaper

This operation can be repeated 3-4 times or use the next combination of buttons ctrl+f:

We'll create now a brush of bubbles shape, but firstly we have to open a new file of small size (700/700 px). Insert on it a figure of round shape with the Elliptical Marquee Tool. Paint it in black color with Paint Bucket Tool. Our bubbles will be of black color, because the brushes' originator recognizes only black colors.

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Apply now the next command Select - Feather (the value depends on the bubble's size).

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Erase everything that is situated in the marking's zone:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Insert on a new layer several flares, using the Brush Tool:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Blur them out with Gaussian Blur:

Designing Marine Wallpaper 

Then apply the next command: Edit - Define Brush Preset to create a brush out of our picture. Get back to the file with the wallpapers and choose a white color and the brush we made up. The brush's size should be changed when adding the bubbles to the ornaments we already have:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Select the Dodge Tool to decolorize the ornaments' edges:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Merge down all the layers: Layer - Merge Visible (shift+ctrl+e). We have to dark out a little the wallpapers edge in a way to accentuate only the middle of the picture. Copy the new layer and make the corrections on its brightness and contrast: Image - Adjustments - Brightness/Contrast:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Create out of this layer a mask: Layer - Add Layer Mask - Hide All and choose the Gradient Tool of white color to make the layer visible only along its edges:

Designing Marine Wallpaper

Combine the layers (ctrl+e) and the last step includes erasing the black color from the picture, using the next combination: Image - Adjustments - Selective Color.

Designing Marine Wallpaper 

That is what we've got:

The picture is finished!
