Step 1

Once you’re done rendering the 3D scene, create a new layer on top of the Background layer, and call it “Dark BG”. Fill the new layer with a dark color. Here, the color #3d3d3d is used.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 11

Download the RisingSun brushes set, and load it into your Brushes Preset. Create a new layer on top of the “Dark BG” layer and call it “Rays”. Set the Foreground color to #f4edd3, and use brush 3 (or any other one you like) to add the rays-shape on the new layer.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 11

Change the “Rays” layer’s Blend Mode to Soft Light.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 11

Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise, and set the Amount to 7, the Distribution to Uniform, and check the Monochromatic box.

Step 2

Download the gvl Suddenly Spring brushes and the Flower Brush Set 1, and load them into the Brushes Preset.

Pick the Sampled Brush 27 tip, and open the Brush panel (Window > Brush) to modiy the Settings as shown below:

Create a new layer on top of the Rays layer and call it Leaves. Set the Foreground color to #a7a400, and start painting some stokes of leaves with the brush. You can Undo/Redo the process until you’re satisfied with the result.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 12

Once you’re done painting the leaves, double click on the Leaves layer to add the following Layer Style:

– Drop Shadow

  • Color : #c6af90
  • Distance : 2
  • Size : 0

– Inner Shadow

  • Color : #c7c6b4
  • Distance : 2
  • Size : 2

Step 3

Create another new layer on top of the Leaves layer, and call it Flowers. Set the Foreground color to #e23333.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 13

Pick the Sampled Brush 19, and in the Brush panel, change the Settings as below:

Again, paint the flowers on the new layer.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 13

Once you’re done painting, double click the Flowers layer to add the following Layer Style:

– Drop Shadow

  • Color : #bfa98a
  • Distance : 2
  • Size : 2
Crumpled Paper 3D step 13

– Inner Shadow

  • Color : #dfc6c7
Crumpled Paper 3D step 13

Applying the Layer Style adds more depth to the painted shapes, and makes them pop out even more.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 13

Step 4

Open the Grungy paper texture v.5 and place it under the 3D text layer.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 14

Change the texture layer’s Blend Mode to Multiply, and the Opacity to 50%.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 14

Create a new layer on top of the texture layer and call it Gradient. Set the Foreground color to Black, and grab the Gradient Tool to create a Radial Gradient, using the Foreground to Transparent fill. Check the Reverse box so that the black color covers the corners not the center, and click and drag from the center of the document to one of the corners.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 14

Change the Gradient layer’s Blend Mode to Soft Light, and the Opacity to 60%.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 14

Step 4

Click the 3D text layer, then, click the Create new fill or adjustment layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. Choose the Exposure adjustment layer.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 15

Right click the Exposure adjustment layer, and choose Create Clipping Mask.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 15

This will make the adjustment layer affect the 3D text layer only (the layer below it).

Crumpled Paper 3D step 15

Change the Exposure to 0.55, the Offset to -0.0080, and the Gamma Correction to 0.80.

Crumpled Paper 3D step 15

You can change the values as you like, or use other adjustment layers. But for now, that’s it.

And this is the final result once again.
