Resources


First off, you’ll need to choose the images you’re going to add to the text, then open them in Photoshop. The ones used here are from the Bloom! folder.

What you’ll need to do after that, is decide what part of each image you want to place in front of the letter, and what part you’ll place behind it.

Once you have that in mind, it’s time to select the part you want to place in the front. There are two main ways to create the selection:

Step 1

The first way to select the front part is by using the Magic Wand Tool. So you simply pick the tool, and un-check the Contiguous box in the Options bar, then click to start creating the selection.

Click the Add to selection icon in the Options bar, and keep clicking the parts you want to add to the selection.

The second way is by using the Quick Selection Tool, with the Add to selection icon clicked as well. You just need to click and drag slightly to add to the selection. This is an easier option for the smaller parts to avoid clicking each one of them separately.

If any parts get added to the selection by mistake, you can click the Subtract from selection icon to deselect them.

Once you’re done creating the selection, press the Ctrl/Cmd + J keys to duplicate the selection in a new layer.

Repeat that to all the other images you’ll be using.

  • Click the Gradient box to create the gradient using the colors #f4f4f4 to the left and #e0e0e0 to the right.

This will style all the letters.

Step 4

Now go back to the flower documents you have, and for each one, duplicate both layers to the original document.

After that, place the letter between both flower layers, select those flower layers, and press Ctrl/Cmd + T to enter the Free Transform Mode.

Resize, rotate, and reposition the flowers as you like, then hit the Enter/Return key to accept the changes.
