So we just start from choosing document size. I’ll pick one of the standard aspect ratio documents:

Creating a new layer to start from something will be very reasonable.

Choose a color for the background – it’s not always has to be white or black – right?

Now I’m beginning to create medium size shapes. I’ve chosen the elliptical shapes to be on my design so it probably means that a good way will be to stick to rounded angle shapes. I’ve also changing the color a little bit.

I’m trying to define some other design elements using layer styles: and this is my first attempt – that I really like.

Well: looks quite ok I think. It stands out and has great color variation.


Now create a new layer on the top of all and fill it with orange to transparency gradient, from left to right.

I really want to use Figurative fonts (the ones that have some ornaments or little pictures) somewhere here: so I decided and choose these 2 fonts – sorry but I really don’t remember their names.

And
the final element will be the brush that I really like – I don’t
expected that I will use it so much in my work but this is it.

The
corner location of the text gives us a great possibility to flip the
image without changing the text – this is probably the best feature
here I guess. So I really hope you found something interesting for
you).
