How To Create The Love Text Layer Style

First download this ZIP file(3.18MB) that includes the prerequisites for this tutorial, the brushes, patterns and also the sample PSD file. Inside the PSD file you can find the diamonds text style with the layer styles intact.

Let's start this tutorial with the luxury Photoshop text style. First we have to choose the font type; I will work with the Intro font type, which is a free font. You can of course use any font type you want. Here is a tutorial on how you can install font in Photoshop .

Type a text that you like. Because I am making a Valentine party flyer, I will write "love" on two lines like shown in the preview.

How To Add Diamonds On The Text Letters

Create a new layer above the Love Text Layer and call it Diamonds Layer. Use the Love Text Layer to create work path and stroke path using the "dotted line brush" that you can download from here.

You have to delete the work path before going to the new step. Again make a new work path like in the previous step but you have to first Contract Selection with 25px less or more depending on your text diameter. Go to Select>Modify and choose Contract.

Create A Lens Flare And A Light Leak

In a new layer above all the other layers, including the text layers, add some lens flare textures. That way you will add interesting colorful light effects to your image. Simply pick a optical flare image that you like and use the Motion Blur(Filter>Blur menu) to create a soft blur look.

Go to Filter>Distort and choose Polar Coordinates to create a light leak effect. You might have to resize the image to a larger scale (300%) to obtain an abstract beam of light.

You can add another optical lens flare, but this time leave it as it is, without any distortion. You might want to change its color tones by adding a Hue/Saturation adjustment with clipping mask. Again set the blend mode of this layer to Lighten or Screen.
