In this small Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you some interesting effect which I have got by experimenting. You can apply it on your designs.

Create a new document about 1000×700 pixels. Select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #6b4c00, #190900 and drag a linear gradient.

After that I would like to add more colors to the background. For this create a new layer, use the Brush Tool and select a soft brush with the diameter 400 pixels and add some colors to your layout. I have used next colors: #fff000, #e7340a, #20f00a and #0a7dcd.

Move to the next step. Now I would like to add the text. But I’m going to add it without using Type Tool. I will add it in different way. Select the Brush Tool and download these brushes. Then create a new layer and put every letter on it with color of #ffc088.

Duplicate the layer with Ctrl+J and apply Outer Glow for current layer.

Then go to the layer under and press Сtrl+F to apply Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic with similar presets again. After that mess with the layer mode & opacity/fill. I tried Hard Light with opacity of 60%.
