To complete this tutorial, you will need the following stocks:

Model by faestock

Background texture

Flower stock image

Various Crack Brushes and Grunge Brushes (Google and you should be able to find lots of these)

Note: If you have difficulty with Step 3 – 5 of this tutorial, please check out this video tutorial below:

Step 1

Create a new document sized 800px * 1030px with black background. Load the background texture into Photoshop and select the following piece:

Copy and paste the selection over to our document and cover the entire canvas:

Use a combination of grunge and crack brushes as eraser, remove parts of the texture as shown below:

Add the following adjustment layers as clipping masks to this texture:

Black and White

Layer mask for the above black and white adjustment layer:



and here is the effect so far:

Step 2

We will work on the model in this step. Load the model image into Photoshop and select the following portion:

Copy and paste the selection over to our document, re-size and position it as shown below:

Apply the following layer mask on the model layer (in red), you can use a combination of grunge or splatter brush to achieve this:

And here is my effect after the layer mask:

Add the following adjustment layer as clipping masks to this model layer:

Black and White

Apply layer mask on the above black and white adjustment layer to reveal the lips area:


and here is my effect so far:

Step 3

We will add some green pattern over the face area in this step. Load the flower image into Photoshop and select the following area with Lasso Tool (40px feather):

Copy and paste the selection over to our document, resize as shown below:

Set it as clipping mask to the face layer (put this layer above the previous adjustment layers):

Use a small, hard eraser, remove the following parts from this green layer and reveal the face below:

Step 4

We will add the flower patterns over to our image. Again we use the Lasso Tool (40px feather) to select a portion as shown below:

Copy and paste the selection over to our document and place it below the model layer. Use a small, hard eraser to remove all parts except the pink flower bits:

Apply the following levels adjustment to this flower layer:

and here is the effect so far:

Duplicate this flower a few times and move them to the top as shown below:

Step 5

We’re almost done! To add some final touch-ups for our design, we can paint some splatters around the flower as shown below:

Add some cloud/smoke effect around the canvas:

Use the blur tool the blur-out some flowers on the top:

We’re then flatten the image, duplicate the background layer and apply the following Accented Edges filter to the duplicated layer:

Add the following layer mask to this duplicate layer:

and this is effect I have so far:

I further added some colours with a number of adjustment layer (selective color, curves, vibrance), I will leave this for you to experiment!
