I just wrote a little Tutorial, and I hope you get my point. I’m sorry if you don’t, but you know English is my second language.
So let´s start. This tutorial is about this Chapter.
You need the following resources
I start with a new file (File -> New) in the size 380×300 px. I choose the color # 000000 as the background. Then I put texture1 on the graphic and set the layer property to screen
Since I don’t like the flower that orange, I change the color. To do this, I use the menu Image -> Adjustments -> Hue / Saturation and set the Hue to -26 .
Then I put a picture of my wife under the texture.
Since I don’t want the face under the petals, I give the picture a layer mask and remove the woman’s face from under the leaves.
Then I put texture2 on my graphic and set the layer property to screen and move the texture to the right edge of the graphic.
Texture3 follows as the next texture by screen with the layer setting. I move the texture to the left side of the graphic so that the side becomes slightly „smoky“.
I also create the next texture, Texture4, screen with the layer setting and place it on my graphic.
With the Font1 I created the first word of my text in the color #ba5d64. I give the text an outline and a gradient and drop shadow. You just have to try around a little.
Then my next person follows.
With Font2 I designed the rest of the text.
For a bit more light and shadow, I’ll finish with texture5 and set it to soft light with the layer property.
For the conclusion, only the color is needed. To do this, I put the coloring on my graphic. In addition, I pack a vibrance layer above (layer -> New Adjustment Layer > Vibrance) with the settings
However, since the little woman will then become very red, I’ll give the dynamic layer a layer mask and remove the layer above the woman.
The graphic is then already finished.
