Thank you ek22.

As usual I failed :(
Got as far as your beautiful pattern but from the last text duplicate I kept getting 'visible' layer while pressing delete so couldn't delete the last lot of grey or the extra pattern.
Will try again tomorrow and see if I have any success then.
ps. does the ppi for a new image have any bearing on this? Mine wouldn't change to 300, even though I tried manually.

When I read, there by page 51:

"It's starting to look like something now. We're almost there."

I almost cried with joy! :rofl

EK22, excellent tutorial! :clap :bigthup
Richly illustrated, in language easy to follow. It must have been laborious, so many steps, so many pictures.
Thank you for the tutorial :tyspin

Okay, you guys, nice work BTW.
Now, when I get to this step I am having trouble deleting the backgroud coloured layer behind the text. I went alpha selection on the text, then I went Select > invert > clear. When I did that I ended up with grey text and transparent background. Then I went to the colored layer while it was still inverted and tried deleting that and I still ended up with the gray text. Screen shot below. :oops: :oops:

Molly, select the Texture layer, after alpha select from the bottom text layer.
Then, in texture layer, Invert the selection and delete the excess.

Or

Alpha select from the bottom text layer, invert the selection.
After, select the Texture layer and delete the excess

Edited:
Molly, remember turn off the eyes in layers above. Or you ever will see gray text! ;)
