Final Product What You’ll Be Creating

Step 1

Let’s start with a very large canvas of 300px/inch resolution, I would recommend that you use the A4 format. Now choose the right font and text that you want to type. I used the sentence “No More Turning Back” typed with Trajan Pro. Remember that the more words you use, the longer this will take.

First type “Turning”, and as shown below. Select the T and give it a desired size. Then, type out the rest of letters.

Step 2

When you’re done with the first word, remember to frame it with two guide lines. This will help you to clearly define the edges of your typography.

Now create a new layer, and type “No More”. Place it as shown below. Make sure everything is set between your two guide lines. Then on new layer type “Back” and place it below the word “Turning”; stretch it to fit the rest of your type.

Step 3

Now that you’re done with the text, add the Floral Shapes to your Photoshop folder. Select the Custom Shape Tool and in its options check Large Thumbnail. You will then be able to see all the floral shapes as large thumbnails. This will really help you to choose the proper elements.

The second image below shows all the elements that I chose to fill the letter N.

…and that’s the end of the preview!
