Step 1

Download the 8 wooden patterns and open the "elso.png" image in Photoshop. Go to Edit -> Define Pattern, and type in any name you want for the pattern.

step-001a

Go to File -> New, and create a new 1150 x 768 px document.

step-001b

Create a new layer on top of the Background layer and call it "Wood Pattern".

step-001c

Pick the Paint Bucket Tool, and in the Options Bar at the top, choose Pattern for the Fill type, and choose the wood pattern from the patterns drop down menu. Then fill the document with the selected pattern.

step-001d

Create a new layer on top of the "Wood Pattern" layer and call it "Gradient". Pick the Gradient Tool, set the Foreground color to Black, and in the Options Bar, choose the Diamond "Foreground to Transparent" gradient, and check the Revers box. Click and drag from the center of the document to one of the corners to create the gradient.

step-001e

Change the "Gradient" layer's Blend Mode to Soft Light.

step-001h

Step 2

Create the text with the color #c29f5f. The font used is Bubblegum, and the size is 250 px. The Tracking value (Window -> Character) is set to 10 to avoid stroke overlapping.

step-002a

Now, we will modify some brush settings to create the stroke. So open the Brush panel (Window -> Brush), and choose a hard round brush. Under Brush Tip Shape, set the Size to 20, the Hardness to 85%, and the Spacing to 68%.

step-002b

Under Shape Dynamics, set the Size Jitter to 100%, and make sure the other values are as shown below. Also, check the Wet Edges box down the Brush panel.

step-002c

Back to the Layers panel, right click on the text layer, and choose Create Work Path.

step-002d

Create a new layer below the text layer and call it "Stroke". Set the Foreground color to #a06600 and pick theDirect Selection Tool.
