In this video I demonstrate how to use Layer Styles to create a gold tone text effect with drop shadow, colorize the text using a Blend Mode, then using special Photoshop Elements Brushes and settings to create the snowflake background, along with a custom Gradient using the Gradient Tool.

This comprehensive video takes you step-by-step through the complete process from beginning images clear through to the final composite image. This training demo was recorded in Photoshop Elements 15 but the techniques used will work just as well in Photoshop Elements 11 through the latest Photoshop Elements.
