Today I worked on a project out of a photoshop creative magazine.
I started with a background with a color of c7dbda, I then use the grids by pressing command +.
I then added the bottom half, “the sea”, I then added a gradient overlay. I went to the layer menu and then layer style and gradient overlay. I changed the color stops to 569489 and bbd8d6.
I then used the ellipse shape tool to add multiple circles along the line to make the clouds. I also added a rectangle, the ship; then I selected the ellipse tool and then went to the control bar and selected Intersect Shape Area and made a circle to cut out the top left corner.
I then out a gradient overlay over the ship, color stops were changed to 11292b and 4a6360. I also added a diamond, from the custom shape panel, for the other side of the ship. I then added the top rectangle for the top part of the ship.
