Start by making a new image (File->New) with 640 px (Width) X 480 px (Height) dimension. You can see the exact settings bellow.
Select the Gradient Tool (G) from the tools.
Create a new gradient using white (#FFFFFF) and light grey (#C3C3C3) colors. Use the same setting as it´s shown bellow.
Into the “Background” layer apply the gradient. You should obtain something like in the next picture.
Select the Pen Tool (P) and make a path like in the picture below.
Make a new layer (press Ctrl + Shift + N or you can go to Layer > New > Layer). Rename the layer to “Base”. You can rename a layer by pressing right click on it , then selecting “Layer properities” option and in the “Name” box you can enter what name you prefer. Fill the path with a dark gray color. I used #383838 grey.
