I’m always looking for fresh new designs to use when I’m design eLearning courses. A while back I was inspired by a watercolor effect that someone used for a marketing piece. Today I finally blocked out some time to play around and recreate some of my own watercolor backgrounds for eLearning. Below are some examples of what I came up with.
I created these backgrounds in Adobe Photoshop. To make the watercolor effect, I used a Photoshop Brush set which can be downloaded here. I also grabbed a watercolor paper texture background which can be downloaded here.
Below is a video tutorial on how to create your own watercolor style background.
You can download my watercolor backgrounds for free if you’d like.
