Yeayyy another Tutorial! Well firstly i was very amazed seeing the feedback from my latest photoshop watercolor tutorial. It was great seeing u all to actually try making and following the steps, and not to forget the amazing results! So this time i'm going to show how to make :
Start by opening a blank layer
Then open all of the pictures that u are going to use. This time, I will be using 2 floral pattern backgrounds.
Now, use the “ Horizontal Type Tool” (or by simply typing “T”) to write down the words on the blank layer. (I am in fact a “harry potter movies” fan ^^)
Make sure that the text color is black
Now, I want to change the color of the background. Pay attention to the layers box on the bottom right. Make sure that the layer is on “background” (as seen on the picture above).
Click on the “Paint Bucket Tool” ( or by simply typing “G”) then set the color by click on the “Set Foreground Color” (on the bottom left). Choose the color you want then click “OK”
Use the “Move Tool” ( or by simply typing “V”) and drag ur picture layer to the text layer
It will look like this
Now pay close attention to the layer box, make sure that ur “picture layer “ is on top of the text words. Then click on the small arrow on top of Opacity (look at red circle).
Then choose “Create Clipping Mask”. Or if you think that it’s confusing u, u can make a shortcut by typing “ Alt +Ctrl + G”
YEAY U’VE MADE IT!! (here, I changed the color of the word “NO GOOD” to white)
Overall, YOUR DONE. U can stop here. But I wanna do a bit more on this picture to make it look better.
So, I dragged my other floral pattern layer to the text layer (as seen on the pict. above). Then do over step 9-10 (or u can just type “Alt + Ctrl + G”)
Now this is what makes it different. For the 3rd time, look over to the layers box on the right. Then click the “Opacity”. Feel free to arrange the opacity level. This time, I set it to 69%
There u go! U see the difference?
The last touch up! Click on the “Text Layer” (look at the red circle) at the Layers Box. Then click ur right mouse and choose “Blending Options”
Click on “Stroke” then freely change the color and size. After that, click OK.
AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS NOW!
Lastly, I’m going to use the “Crop Tool” (or by simply typing “C”) to crop it a bit
FINALLY! TADAAAA. WE’RE DONE! :D
