Do you like winter and miss this season? In this way this tutorial special for you! We will create snowflakes everywhere.
Start by making a new document in Photoshop. After creating your document, fill the background with a gradient. For this select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #8cdbe8 and #49aedd.
