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 Signatur.
You need the following resources
First I start my blend with a size of 800x600px and the background color #efeceb. Then I put Texture1 on my graphic and cut out the frame. With it I can also put elements behind it without having to erase in any wild way.
Then I put PNG1 directly on top of my graphic and place it over my texture. It looks like this for me, but of course I can also place it so that it is appealing to you.
With the rectangle tool I create a rectangle that is almost as big as the frame on my texture1. The rectangle does not get a surface color but a contour with a thickness of 1px with the color #ecdbd0. I put the rectangle BEHIND my Texture1 .
Now I duplicate the rectangle and slide it in front of my texture1 and move it a little.
I then take PNG2 and put a new layer over it (Layer -> New Fill Layer) in the color #ffffff. Then I apply a clipping mask so that the layer is only applied over the flowers. Then I place the PNG on the right edge of my textures. It looks very bright right now, but it gets a little better. I remove disturbing edges with the help of a layer mask.
Now my first person is coming for the graphics. I set the level setting to Multiply .
I now put a new layer (Layer -> New -> Layer) over my graphic with an opacity of 30%. Then I take a soft little brush and the paint # 000000 and make a small bar in the middle, starting from my wife’s ear. You can only see if you look closely. I’ll do that for the text and you can do that later with it, just don’t forget, otherwise it will be difficult to read.
Also with PNG3 I put a new layer on top (Layer -> New Fill Layer) in the color #ffffff. Then I apply a clipping mask so that the layer is only applied over the stars. I give the stars a layer mask and take them away from where I can’t need them. I only like to have a few.
I then duplicate Texture1 and set the Layer property to darken . Then I use a layer mask to remove so much of the texture that only the orange flowers are left.
Now I duplicate PNG2 together with the color plane once and flip it (Edit -> Transform > Flip Horizontal) and then move it to the upper edge of my graphic.
This is followed by Texture2 for my graphic with the layer setting Multiply . I remove annoying edges with a layer mask.
I take PNG1 again and put it in the middle of my focus.
Next I take PNG3 and set the layer property to Divide . Here I leave the stars yellow. Here, too, I erase a little so that I only have as many stars as I need. I put the stars over the last PNG
Then I duplicate this PNG3, set it to black and white (Image -> Adjustments > Black & White) and set the layer property to normal. Then I put a new layer on top (Layer -> New Fill Layer) in the color #ffffff. Then I apply a clipping mask so that the layer is only applied over the stars.
I give the stars a layer mask again and take away some of the stars and leave that white only on the blue stars.
Now I create my text.
And place the remaining three people.
Now I first put Coloring1 on top of the graphic and then Coloring2. Then I take a new Vibrance layer (Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> Vibrance) with the setting
If you like and can, you can still use Topaz on it and the whole thing is done.
I hope you had fun.
