Hey everybody, in this tutorial I will teach you how to make a grunge background, featuring grungy lines. Lets begin.
Step 1: The Background
Open up a new document whatever size you want. I’ll be using 600×300 so the images fit on this page fine.
Grab the paint bucket tool and fill the background with a nice light yellow (#e3dfcb).
Create a new layer (ctrl+shift+n), set your foreground color to #524238, and your background color to #cab6a9. Render clouds on the new layer (filter>render>clouds).
Apply splatter to the clouds (filter>brush strokes>splatter). Use the settings shown in the picture.
Lower the opacity of this layer to 30 percent. Bam, we now have a simple grungy background to work over. Don’t worry it’ll get better.
