How to make Summer Grass Text!

This is how to make a summer grass text that all your friends will love!

First we will need to get a nice picture of some grass. You can find your own or use mine here.

Now we want to add the butterfly. You can get it here. Copy it onto the canvas and the press CMD/CTRL + T to reduce it’s size.

Now apply Drop Shadow and Outer Glow layer styles to this layer.

Now we will type our text. You can put whatever you want but for this tutorial I am going to put “Sunny”. I used Arial Black font and a size of 125pt.
