Entwined Words

Supplies needed:

My supplies HERE
Font(s) of choice I am using
Filter - Eye Candy 4 Gradient Glow

This tutorial was written by Mizteeque on 18th February 2016
Written using psp9 but other versions should work just as well
Any similarity to other works is unintentional and purely coincidental

Open blank canvas 700 x 700 
floodfill white

text tool
Font of choice
I am using "An Unfortunate Event"
size 100, fore and back color black
stroke width 3
type the word "Sweet"
convert to raster

select all, float, defloat
new raster layer
floodfill with color/pattern/gradient of choice
expand by 3
new raster layer
floodfill with different color/pattern/gradient of choice
add noise 100, uniform & monochrome checked
drag this layer below your gradient layer

copy and paste roses as new layer
resize by 60
I rotated the first one slightly to the right 
and positioned so it was diagonally across the end of my word
and the duplicate a position towards the bottom left of my word
merge the two rose layers together

make noise layer active
select all, float, defloat
now on your rose layer use your eraser to 
erase some of the roses
you may need to change the size of your eraser as you go
so you only erase the parts you want
in the image below I am going to erase the rose that has been cut off

Here it is erased

Keep erasing parts until you are happy that it looks
like the roses are entwined round the word
you should end up with something like this

Now copy and paste as many of the sweet treats as you wish
and position to your liking
I placed some in front of everything
and some behind the word "Sweet"

dropshadow the sweet treats, the roses & the noise layer

using a different font
I used Blueberry Oatmeal, size 100, color black
write out the word "Treats"
convert to raster
select all, float, defloat
new raster layer
floodfill with same gradient as before but change
the angle and repeats to 0

effects, eye candy 4, gradient glow

dropshadow as before

delete your white background layer
merge visible
crop and save as png
