Preppy Text Tutorial 3
comment if you use and if it helped you!This tutorial will show you how to make this style of preppy text. ♥
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: duplicate the text layer 2 times so you have 3 text layers.
Step Four: your going to hide the top 2 layers by clicking the eye icon next to the top 2 layers and change the text colors of the bottom text layer to a grey color - I'm using hex code #333333
Step Five: unhide the top 2 layers by (again) clicking the eye icon next to the top 2 layers
Step Six: now make sure your top text layer is selected on your layers palette and change the settings to match mine below.
Step Seven: Hide the top layer only using the eye icon on the layers pallete like you did above.
Step Eight: Select the 2nd (middle) text layer. make a new layer above it then merge that 2nd (middle) text layer with the new layer you just created.
Step Nine: Make sure that new merged together 2nd (middle) layer is selected and go to Filter - Noise - Add Noise. Match your settings to mine below!
Step Ten: Unhide all your layers (again, using the eye icon on the layers pallete next to each layer) - all eye icons should be visible on all layers.
Step Eleven: Select your glitter (2nd // middle) text layer and make sure the move tool is selected & using your arrow keys press the down arrow 2 times & the right arrow 2 times.
Step Twelve: Select your dark (bottom) text layer and make sure the move tool is selected still & using your arrow keys press the down arrow 4 times & the right arrow 4 times.
Step Thirteen: now you're going to merge all your layers together and add a stroke (layer - layer style - stroke) im doing 2px and making it a dark color so I'll be using hex code #333333
Step Fourteen: Make a new layer. Merge it with the layer you just did the stroke on.
Step Fifteen: Go to Layer - Layer Style - Stroke again and add a 2px gradient stroke (using your colors!) Match your settings to mine below:
Add any effects you want (dropshadow, brushes, whatever) & you are done!
