In previously post we are introducing you with a little secret of Photoshop, so you can easily create stunning designs in just few steps. What we want is to create a simple tutorials so you can learn without some painful troubles alongside. It’s the same with this our new tutorial. It’s a very simple and jet very clever technique. Once you learn it, you are going to apply it all over.

First Step

On your computer open new file in Photoshop with a 550×350 pixels for the dimensions, and then simple put text you want to work with. You can do that with the Horizontal Type Tool (T).

Second Step

Now it’s time to find some textures for our furry design. You can look on Google images for fur texture, and there is plenty gorgeous texture for you to work with. It’s important to place the texture you choose on top of the text you previously type.

Third Step

Because I choose a smaller texture, I will need to duplicate it for covering the whole text.

Fourth Step

You can simple delete some small parts of texture, just to merge them perfectly. This step is very significant because we want to create a perfectly furry text.

Fifth Step

Now we are going on to the Layers Panel and need to select the layer with our text. Then just click on the layer thumbnail with the right mouse click, and choose Select Pixel. You are going to see your text inside texture.

Seventh Step

Next thing we are going to do is to create a little brush so we can use it in our design. First we are creating a simple one, like on the picture sample. Once you create a shape just go to Edit – Define Brush, and name it simple “furry”.

Eleventh Step

With a simple modification on Layer – Layer Styles – Inner Shadow we are going to apply our styles to all layers. This thing is helpful for the reason that you can apply the similar layer styles to numerous objects at one time. Even maybe expand the quantity of effects by addition to several folders at once.
