Epiphany - Gift of the Magi

I began by making all of the glitter and foil pattern tiles as described in the tutorial. Next, in Photoshop, I created a square and imported a small painting I did of the Christmas arrangement on my console.


Next, I created a grunge circle in Illustrator, and copied it to my Photoshop file. 


I then applied the glitter effect, as described in the tutorial.


I clicked on the eye icon for my painting layer so I could see it, and added a rough mask (the image below shows the mask in the channel layer) so the image roughly follows the glitter circle -- I wanted some of the image to show through outside the glitter circle. My background layer at the bottom was black, so the black showed through mask.


I then added the lettering. Both text layers were given a pale yellow color overlay in the "effects" panel. The title was given an opacity setting of 78%.
