Graffiti abc

I've completed the abc for my graffiti kit.

The tutorial below shows you a way to use these letters.

1. Put your letters on the background and merge the letters' layers.

2. Click on the layer thumbnail with CTRL+right mouse button to select the outline of the text.

3. In the menu: Select --> Modify --> Expand, and write in a value that is good for you.

4. Use Paint Bucket Tool from Tools palette and choose a color to fill the outline with. (Orange for me)

5. Select text's outline again! (CTRL+right click on the layer thumbnail)

6. Click on the background layer to make it active! Edit --> Copy (CTRL+C), Edit --> Paste (CTRL+V) A new layer appears: text shape, filled with background pattern.

7. On this new layer: Image --> Adjustments --> Desaturate!

8. Set layer's Blend mode to Hard Light, and Opacity to 60-80%. (As you wish.)

9. Merge two text layers!

10. Use Eraser tool with brush type Grunge on the text, so it becomes shabby.

And that's all. :))

Try it out and use for your pleasure!
