Making Sticker Styled Word Art in Photo Editor 2008

Sticker Word Art Tutorial

1. Open new document (Ctrl-N). I am using the settings Scrapbook 12×12, at 300 ppi. To choose the base color for your paper, select Background color| Transparent

2. Click on the Text Tool.

3. Select a plain font and type out your quote. We’ll dress up the fonts in a little bit.

4. Play with some different fonts. Use fonts that match the sentiment of your quote.The fonts I used here are Angelina and Adorable.

5. You can also play around with the way the words are sized, or arranged. To do this, duplicate the word art (Ctrl-D). Hide the Top Layer by clicking on the eye on the Object Layer.

6. Click on the bottom layer, then click on the first box in the Edit Mode: Edit Image (Mask Visible). Select the Eraser Tool and erase the part of the word art you want to change.

7. Hide the bottom later, and reveal the top layer, by clicking the “eye” on each Object Layer.  Click on the top layer, then click on the first box in the Edit Mode: Edit Image (Mask Visible). Select the Eraser Tool and erase the part of the word art you want to change.

Here, I rotated the You on the Top layer 90 degrees and transformed it slightly larger. I moved it closer to the horizontal words so my photo will fit in at the corner nicely.

TIP: Rename the layers in the Object Palette to make it easier to remember which words are on which layer.

8. Select both layers, Right click and make into a group.

To make your word art look like a sticker, click on Adjustments| Artistic| Colored Edges. Select the Edge Color to White. I have the Intensity set to 4.

9. . Save as a .png file.If necessary, crop .png image so there is not an excess of transparent pixels around it.
