DIY // Clipping Masks :: Images in Text

I'm kind of like so excited to share this tutorial with you today because its one I loooove and the first image is so pretty it makes me kind of giddy! :) So today I'm going to show you how to easily create these (what I like to call) image texts! This technique is so versatile and can be used to give your blog, pictures and layout that extra spark to really set your design apart from others! :) I mean how pretty is that!?
Then you can crop your image and do some other fun things to it!
If you have any questions please leave a comment and I'd be more than happy to help you!
