Preppy Text Tutorial Two
comment if you use and if it helped you! ♥
This tutorial will show you how to make this style of preppy text. ♥
Things you will need: this (click) grunge pattern
Step One: open your document, or if you're making a text, get the text tool and type out your text. Choose your font, and size, and if you don't know how to smooth and kern your text, we have a tutorial for it! :)
Step Two: Colorize your text, if you don't know how to get your colors/gradient for your text such as this, (you guessed it) we have a tutorial for it!
Step Three: Go to layer styles, and go to bevel and emboss, make your settings like mine.
Step Four: Go to layer styles, and go to inner glow, make your settings like mine.
Step Five: Go to layer styles, and go to inner shadow, make your settings like mine.
Step Six: Go to layer styles, and go to pattern overlay, make your settings like mine using the grunge pattern provided above.
Step Seven: Okay, now the "tricky" part, duplicate your text layer and go to the very top layer.
Step Eight: Go to your fill option, and set the fill to ZERO. Trust me, it will be okay!
Step Nine: On the layer we just set the fill option to zero, go to layer styles, and stroke. Stroke your layer 2px, and your gradient that you used in the very beginning.
Step Ten: You should have something a little like this!
Step Eleven: Rasterize your layer, and stay on that layer.
Step Twelve: Now, on the layer with the stroke that we rasterized so it is no longer editable for the stroke. Go to Filter>Noise>Add noise.
Step Thirteen: Add noise to the stroke with my settings here...
Step Fourteen: Merge your stroke layer, and your text layer.
Step Fifteen: Go to layer style, drop shadow, and add your drop shadow. Here are my settings...
Step Sixteen: TADA! You now have a sparkly text that is ready for a sign or header, etc! ♥
