How To Make A Crumpled Paper Text In Photoshop Tutorial
Ever wonder how those really cool looking letters that seem to be crumpled happen?
It’s really not that hard to do, if you have a Photoshop tutorial to follow. I know a lot of people who do digital scrapbooking like to use Adobe Illustrator, but I prefer Photoshop, and it does everything I need it to do. To learn how to make this beautiful crumpled text effect, Photoshop will be just fine.
To use this tutorial, you’ll need to have access to a crumpled paper texture in your textures presets. I include a link to Freepik.com, where you can download a really nice one for free. There are many other free textures available online, too. Here are a few:
Brusheezy.com is one good place to look. They have a premium service, but they also have a lot of free stuff, too.
Texture Palace.com has a wide selection of textures, but I didn’t find any crumpled papers there. Nevertheless, you can build your presets library with their freebies.
Textures.com has a really cool deal for you. Sign up for free and receive 15 free images every day!
Brushez.com offers textures as well as brushes on their website. I especially like their old sheets of paper and vintage grunge textures.
I use a lot of textures, especially old, grungy ones, in designing my scrapbook papers. I like the look of the real thing even when I’m doing it all digitally, and when they’re printed out, I like the smoothness of the paper with the look of all that texture. It makes it a lot easier to put in an album when things are flat. (Please don’t hate me, all you traditionalists who love to run your fingers over the papers and embellishments you use. I love them, too, but definitely like the ease of digital scrapbooking!)
