Golden Tinsel Christmas Text Effect in Photoshop

Tutorials Text Effects 14197 Views November 29th, 2012

Learn how to create a tinsel Christmas decoration text effect in Photoshop from this easy to follow tutorial. All you have to do it to stroke any path(text, shape) using a tinsel brush and you will obtain a creative Christmas effect. I really hope you will enjoy this new Christmas tutorial and I am curious to see your results so feel free to upload your work at our comments section.

Advertisment

In this tutorial I will create a very simple Christmas text effect using a premade tinsel brush that you can download along with the PSD file at the end of this tutorial.

Let's start with a simple text; choose whatever font you want but I used LeckerliOne; if you don't have it download it from the internet and simply install the font in Photoshop.

Add a simple Pattern Overlay; use a glitter pattern. I for example I will choose the golden glitter pattern from this amazing set of glitter seampless pattern.

Press CTRL and click on the XMAS text layer thumbnail to make a selection. Go to Select, Modify and Contract the selection by 8px like in the image.

Add the selection as layer mask for the XMAS text layer. Also add a Drop Shadow effect. Your result should look like this:

there is no tinsel brush in the zip file for this tutorial. There is only a stars brush. I also struggled to get the beginning of this tutorial until I figured to inverse the selection with the glitter pattern overlay. reply

Hi kat,

inside the ZIP file there is a ABR file called "psddude-tinsel-stars.abr" ; this ABR contains the tinsel brush and the stars brush. I have just downloaded the file and it is there.
