The title says Jelly, but to me it's more like "Jello". So, this tutorial will be about "Jello" text.Step 1:
I made my default image size 640 x 640 @ 300 ppi with a black background.
I then added large "capitalized" bold font (Badonk-a-donk) 125 px, white. Should have now two layers, a black background layer, and a text layer.Step 2:
Apply a horizontal ripple to your text layer using the following settings (File - Distort - Ripple):
Copy this image and add it to your .gimp-2.6/patterns folder (I got this from Rob A's Golden Objects tutorial):
Create a new transparent layer and fill it with the new pattern (893.jpg) you just added.
With the new pattern layer selected, go to Colors - Colorize and input the following settings:
It should now look like this:
Duplicate this new pattern layer. Press
Turn off the top
duplicate pattern layer by clicking the eye icon Step 4:
Right click the text layer
and select Alpha to Selection.
Highlight/select the bottom pattern layer.
Go to Colors - Levels and input the following settings:
Invert the selection (Select - Invert) and press delete to remove the background. Press (Select - Invert) again, to restore the selection to just the font.Step 5:
Turn the top pattern layer back visible, by clicking where the eye used to be. Highlight/select that top layer.
Go to (Select - Shrink) and apply a 2 px shrink to the selection.
(Select - Invert) and then delete the background, like in step 4.
(Select - None) to turn off the selection.Step 6:
With the top pattern layer still highlighted, go to Colors - Brightness & Contrast and input the following settings:
Using the Move Tool, with move set to Layer, move the top layer (text over to the left a little bit), see below:
Once you have it moved to where you want it, right click the same layer and select Alpha to Selection, then save it to Path (Select - To Path). Turn off the selection. Select - None.
For the foreground color choose (#ffbdbd).
In the Paths Dialog, right click the path (should be the only one created) and apply a 1 px stroke.
Using the same foreground color (#ffbdbd), use your brush to apply thin lines from corner to corner:
You can hold the shift key down to make straight lines, when using the Paintbrush.
Finished product:TIP: To get the rainbow coloring, add a white layer to the top, fill it with a rainbow gradient, then change the layer mode to Hue.
You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.
