New Challenge (6/21/06) – Text Effects

This week's challenge is going to entail working with text in Adobe Photoshop. Using your own images, or creating one from scratch...create an advertisement or decorative element showcasing the text in the image. You can be as simple or complex as you would like! The challenge is to become familiar with all of the fun things we can do with text in Photoshop.

Also, when posting your final piece(s) for this challenge, please share the technique and/or steps you used so we can all learn something new!

Here are just a few simple examples I have completed showcasing text:

I fed 2 birds with one seed (don't like the stone/killing saying haha); did this as part of Illustrationfriday post too.
I was as "simple" as I liked-- Technique = typed 'rain' over image of rain and turned the opacity of text down.
I'll try and challenge myself next time- when I have more time-- it's the only way to learn.

P.S.: Beautiful samples!

I took this chance to make a couple of new headers for my blog. I was thinking of changing anyway! Which one should I use?!
