I love the title in this layout - http://scrapgirls.ne...ounded-by-love/ - where the large text is split and other text is typed in over it. I just don't know how to do it. I have PS CS6 on a Mac. Thanks!

I would guess that you need to put the smaller type on a thin black box to match the background. I don't think the large red letters had anything done to them.

Hi Kathy, if it's any help, it looks like Kim (kimmybutton) used a template from this set: ScrapSimple Word Art Templates: Title It Life 2 HTH

Thanks for your help! That layout was just an example but I have seen several where the text was "cut out" or split and other text inserted over it. I think I figured out how to do it though. I rasterized the type, then deleted a section using the marquis tool, then created a new type layer and inserted it over it! Not sure if it's the "right" way, but it seems to work. Thanks again and I may purchase those templates, since I like the look so much.

I've done exactly what you did, Kathy - and whatever works is right!

Another option; I think it works better if the smaller text is script, over large base text.:

- Position your smaller text where you want it over the base text. If you want strokes or styles, add now.
- Use the Select tool > Expand option to put dancing ants around the smaller text.
- With the dancing ants still active, choose the base text layer and delete.
You should be left with a space around the script

Happy playing!
