Title: Reach High

  1. Choose three fonts to work with that will compliment your theme and quote.
  2. Type out the quote in appropriate fonts. To easily arrange your word art in the final steps, it is best to put each word in it's own layer.
  3. To add a fabric strip behind a word, make a box shape that will cover the area in a colour of your choice. Apply the Frayed Fabric action from Atomic Cupcake.
  4. To outline text with different colours and patterns, go to (in Adobe Photoshop Elements) Edit > Stroke (Outline) Selection and use the following settings: Width - 10 px; Color - white (or click box to change colour); Location - outside. To outline with patterned paper, use the layers palette to select the desired layer (Ctrl + click), use the magic wand tool, and move the outlined selection to your patterned paper. Switch to the move tool and move the selection back to your layout. Move the layer below the text.
  5. Arrange text elements to fit on your layout.
