Text can be a lot of fun to play with and to help shape your layouts. Journaling is such a great part of sharing our stories, so it is fun to use text in a creative way.
In this tutorial, I will show you how easy it is to create a shape and then write text in that shape!
Here are the instructions in PSE.
I’m going to start with opening a paper and adding a layer on top of the paper. Then I will choose the Text on a shape tool. Look below to see exactly what I mean:
You can also choose your font, type of font, color and size in the section next to it. Now we’ll draw the shape on to our paper:
As you hover over the shape, you’ll notice it changes from a plus sign to an I with a squiggly line through it. Click on the shape, wherever you want your text to start. And begin to type:
As you can see, I have a bit of a gap. Without wanting a partial word, before I simplified the text, I can adjust the size a bit. I’ll start with making it 2 pixels bigger:
And then I made it 2 pixels larger and added a space between each section of words to get this:
After that, I simplified the text, drew a circle in the middle and clipped a photo to it:
See what a fun and easy technique it is!
