Today I am going to present you Photoshop tutorial about creating Dreamy Header like my blog has.
First of all create new document (weight=954 , height=183) & fill it with gradient.
Now we need to draw a cycle. There are a lots of way to do it. In my example I create round shape, & then exclude the center of it.
Create few sets of different cycle modifications, to apply styles you need to keep each such group on its own layer.
To save traffic I prefer not to show all style settings I use, but to share with you this styles.
You can easily apply them to your cycles groups, play with setting to create your own style.
This style always the same, except small differences.
Now we will add some transparency to the bottom of this cycles.
This is my result.
Then I decide to add some background cycles (just flip my cycles horizontally & reduce transparency of layer to 30%). To add some magic blur you need to create a layer with copy of all your cycles. Blur it – Filter/Blur/Gaussian Blur (Radius 3-5 px) & change layer mode from normal to overlay, or soft light.
Then I decide to add some blurring effect at the bottom of my picture. I create selection, fill it with white color, modify with “finger” tool.
Copy, resize, modify… copy, resize, modify… copy, resize, modify… until you well get the result you like.
Change layer mode from normal to overlay, & put your blue flame tips at the bottom of picture.
At the end I decided to add some mirror reflection.
