Copy and paste icon... blah blah blah.
See that top left corner? Copy and paste it... duplicate until it fills the ENTIRE background. If your lazy it's this.
Next you have to make the orange coloring... so I used a pattern this.. It comes standard with photoshop. Set it to color burn 50%.
Then I added the finishing touches to the leaf.... using #94694C.
Then I used #A1603A to make a swirlly flower brush in the background. Set it to color burn 100%.
Then I found a picture of yuuko by searching on google. [image]. I croped her out and pasted her in the left corner.
Because yuuko's looking a bit whiter than the icon image, I added #000856 on exclusion 63%.
Add text and you're done!

THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: When you're feeling creative. It takes alot of time to do... so do this when you're bored or procrastinating homework.
