The Japanese Style Wallpaper

Pretty neat the Japanese style wallpaper don’t you think? Well – here’s how I made it!

Ok – here we go. Start with creating a new document sized 1920×1200 pixels with all the default settings and add in a color of #96a0f9 to the background.

Create a new one layer. Select Brush Tool and a soft round brush with size about 200 px. Make a couple of strokes, using different colors, for example #ff7afd, #4d57d2, #4ccaff and #bda2f3.

Time to add some Japanese patterns to the background. Ok, we can do this by using Japanese brushes. Feel free to download it from here. Now get out the Dodge Tool (Range: Hightlights, 30%) and do a little bit of dodge-work on the background.

Ok, now I would like to add a couple of semi-transparent lines to type Japanese hieroglyph there. We can do this by using Pen Tool with the white color.

Then duplicate layer and modify copied layer with Direct Selection Tool. Actually, you can change the color of the shape to see the difference.

Make the same things two of times.

Time to bring some Japanese hieroglyphs to the lines. Get out the Horizontal Type Tool and click on your path, this will put your text on the path you’ve just made. The font I used below (Japanese) is commercial. Feel free to use another one with hieroglyphs or buy or get somewhere this one.
Write out your text like mine:

Add the text to each of lines. You can use different colors for your text lines.

Ok, now let’s add some logotype to wallpaper. Get out the Horizontal Type Tool (just the regular one) and write out something like ‘Amazing Japan’ using EPISODE1 font (60pt, Crisp Anti-aliasing). It is free. You can download it from here.

Looking great now! But I think we should add some graphic elements to our canvas. I would like to add some flowers. Get out the Custom Shape Tool and select Flower 1 Shape (this is standard shape) using white color.
