NEW TO ME THE POT OF GOLD EDITION

The March New to Me challenge is a tutorial.

And if you are excited about this, you really, really need to get out more often. :yes:

Let's create some wacky gold pot. :D

1. Download your wacky pot.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i3wqy718ktb4x ... t.zip?dl=0

2. Open a new 12 x12 (300 resolution) document with a medium gray background layer.

3. Drag the pot onto the new document as a new layer.

4. Next we will add some special effects (fx)
Note: Do NOT click the OK button until you have added the next three fxs.

(I am working with Photoshop CS5. If you are using a different version, things may be in a different location)

Click on the fx icon on the bottom menu panel

Now you can click the OK button.

Congratulations you now own gold pot!!! :bravo: AKA the new Colorado State Flower :D

Ignore the police sirens as you transport your pot home, and let’s create some gold text.

5. With the text tool, type the word GOLD

The font I used is Adobe Garamond Pro , 135 pt , with white text color.

6. Make your wacky plant layer active, right click somewhere in the blank area to the right of the layer name and choose Copy Layer Style

7. Make your Gold text layer active, right click in the blank area to the right of the layer name and choose Paste Layer Style
Experiment with the colors used in the FXs if you like to create a different look.

Let’s add some highlights to the Gold Text.
8. Create a new layer above the Gold Text layer and name it Highlights.

9. Make the Gold Text layer active. Select the text (While holding the CTRL key, left click on the big T)

10. Make the Highlights layer active. With a soft (0% percent hardness) white brush, click on various areas inside the selection. Deselect.

11. With the text tool, type the word POT on a new layer.

12. Right click in the blank area to the right of the layer name and choose Paste Layer Style.

13. Drag the Color Overlay fx to the trash can located at the bottom menu panel. Or turn the eye off in front of the fx name.

14. Double left click on the Effects and choose Gradient Overlay

15. Choose a multi colored gradient.

These are the settings I used:

Photoshop does not include many gradients. You can find some free ones to download:

Experiment with the FXs to get the desired effect.

16. Type the word “of” on a new layer and copy the layer style from either the Gold text or Pot text

17. Optional: You may create and add a rainbow using this Scrapbird tutorial from last year.

Maybe if I'd been stoned, I could have gotten my "Pot" text to look better...
