Now that we have this design all textured up with some scratches, a nice bokeh background let's add some more effects to our three main circles using the pen tool, and creating selections.
First, under our Circles layer we need ot create a layer. To do this go to Layer > New > Layer
We should now have a blank layer on top of our three circles layer in the group Circles. We will delete this layer so no need to name it.
Now with this layer selected grab your pen tool.
What we are going to do is use the pen tool to create some cutouts in the circles. The pen tool takes precise movements so you'll want to be patient with this tool. Take a look at this image, 1 is where I first clicked to create and anchor point. I click the second point, but hold the click and hit shift. If you notice you it makes a line that you can arc. Hold shift while you do this so it creates a perfect radius. Once you have made a arc you like, you can let go of your click. Afterwords I hold shift before I click the 3rd spot, if you notice on mine it created a straight line which is what we want. To close this, click the 1st spot again.
This will take practice, so be patient as you work with it. Now after, right click on the line and it will bring up a dialog box. Click on Make Selection.
Another dialog box will come up, just click ok.
After it will make a selection on the path you just made using the pen tool. Now select on the last circle, which is the biggest under our group of “Circles” and we will use the eraser tool. Make the eraser size 400px. And click inside our selection. It will bring up a dialog box asking if you want to rasterize, click yes.
Now just erase in our selection and once it's erased out go to Select > Deselect.
Now it will look like this
Repeat everything and do the same thing wherever you'd like. Here is my final outcome. I only added two more. You don't want to add to many and make it very distracting.
