This tutorial is going to teach you how to add an orb to your preppy signs.
Make your preppy sign and merge all of your layers. This works best BEFORE you add text (or underneath your text layers).
Define the brush provided above. Then, take your brush and stamp one of the colors from your color scheme on the sign near the model. I resized my brush to be a size of 250px.
Fill in the remaining colors of your scheme (at least 2-3 of them).
Go to Window > Layers to open the Layers palette.
You can change your layer from Normal to Lighten OR Screen.
Both results will be displayed below.
And that’s it!
This effect can spice up a boring sign without too much extra effort. You can always play with the opacity of the orbs as well if 100% is too overpowering for your sign!
