Children Holder Image

Have you ever tried to make funny holder for photos? Ok, this Photoshop tutorial I’m going to be showing you how to make a simple and nice smiling flower children holder for photos.

Alright, you can start by first creating a new document; I used a document size of 500×500 pixels, white background.

Now you’ll want to begin with creating basis for holder. Get out the Custom Shape Tool and select Flower 1 Shape (this is standard shape).

I think we need to add leaves to our green shape. For this effect select Burn Tool (Range: Shadows, 30%) and darken this shape as shown below:

Ok, time to add yellow flower core. Select Ellipse Tool and create a round shape with color of #fff93a similar to mine:

Ok, not looking so great, yet! Now we can put something like smiling face on this core. First of all, I would like to add some glare to it. Make a round selection using Elliptical Marquee Tool and fill it with white to transparent linear gradient.

Make a new one selection as on picture below and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection, then delete image outside the selection.

Duplicate this layer (Layer > Duplicate Layer) and move it a little bit left.

Time to add a couple if ribbons to our holder for photos. You can do this by using Pen Tool with the color of #94cb00.

Right click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette and select Rasterize Layer. To bring our ribbons three-dimensional effect use Dodge Tool with moderate settings (Range: Highlights, 30%) do a little bit of dodge-work on the each ribbon. We should have an image like below:
