Done. But there are some white space isn't selected so they are not deleted.
If you have CS5 , cool! You have a magical tool here : Magic Eraser Tool. Just use it to delete all the leftover.
A little time and you will have this clean image!
Then just copy it to our file, then name the layer "LEAF".
Please make the back up by duplicate ( CTRL + J ) the layer.
We will need a lot of back ups this time. I will show you later.
Next , open Flor_Frames (3).jpg in new file. And delete the background just like above.( color range then use Magic Eraser Tool )
... And you have this!
Do the same thing as above. Paste it in our file , then name it LEAF 2 , and also make back up - lots of it .
Now we come to the important part. We will make leaves grow around the text.
Pick a layer LEAF 2 (you must already have a couple back ups of this layer )
Then use CTRL + T to transform , scale , rotate , move your leaves until you find the part compatible with the scene. These actions need lots of your imagination so try hard.
For example in the image below I found the part (in red circle) of LEAF 2 seem to be fit with "O" letter. So I adjust it with "O" letter, then I use ERASER TOOL ( E ) to get rid of all leaves that won't work anymore.
And I'm think these leaves are not so perfect so I pick STAMP TOOL and set Sample: Current Layer.
With STAMP TOOL, Alt + Click at some nice leaf in the image , then click to imperfect part of the leaves image , STAMP TOOL will fill a nice leaf in for you. Cool tool, huh?
Keep doing all these steps with another LEAF layer, remember to always have a back up before you transform and delete a layer.
I'll do it again, this time I found the part in red circle is quite good with "R".
So I transform it to fit "R" letter, then delete all of the others. After that I'll use Stamp tool if it's needed
Keep doing it again and again with maybe 8 - 9 leaves layers. I use 10 layers below.
Now you could choose 1 of 2 ways to manage a dozen of leaves layers.
1/ You can choose all the leaves layer, and press CTRL+ E , and they will merge into only one layer.
I also do this way. It's not a great way to manage your layers all the time, but It helps keep your file not so heavy, and this way make next steps be easier.
2/ You can make a group folder and name it LEAF like I do below. Then choose all your leaves layers and drag them into the LEAF group.
Now with all the leaves on one layer, I use Stamp tool again to complete all parts. I also add some details that come underneath the text to make a depth.
