Make a Collage Using Mosaic Effect - PHOTOSHOP TUTORIAL

Here I’ll show you how to make a collage, using mosaic effect.

Ok, start with creating a new document sized 500×500 pixels and use the Paint Bucket Tool to fill canvas area with color of #355b00.

Then mess with the layer mode. I tried Overlay.

Merge two of these layers in one and start with creating mosaic. I want to try to draw mosaic flower. Let’s start! In the beginning create a new one layer and then select the Elliptical Marquee Tool to make selection like on the picture below. Fill this selection with any color you like, It doesn’t matter now.

Make the petal selection using Select > Load Selection and apply Select > Modify > Expand to expand selection about 2 pixels. Move to the lower layer and press Delete to clear selection. Your result should be as mine.

Now, remove selection with Ctrl+D. Move to the upper layer again and duplicate it with Ctrl+J. After that merge all layers with petals in one layer, except topmost. Go back to it and rotate it as the layer before.

After that move to the next step. Press Ctrl+J to copy the layer and hide the copy (click on the eye, which indicates layer visibility). Go to lower layer and set opacity up to 18%. Go back to the hidden copy of layer and make it visible again. Press Ctrl+T to reduce this layer as was shown on my picture below.

Ok, we are almost done with this tutorial, but one more step left. Then I would like to add some floral elements. For this you can use these brushes or feel free to use your own. Go to the background layer and create a new one layer above. Create a composition like on picture shown below using Brush Tool and white color of prints. Change layer mode to Overlay and set opacity up to 40% for this layer.

After that create a new one layer more and add a couple of floral prints more in black color. Set opacity up to 25% for this layer.
