Now the next step will be masking and a little bit of color

adjustments: so this is my mask selection done using (Q) Quick

mask and black to white gradient ( to define the areas of the

selection).

Create a copy of the layer tight now:


Gradient Tool


Apply zigzag filler that can be found in Filters>Distortion>Zigzag

Hide the part of the effect by masking the upper layer:

Now it is Type part I will use only one fond witness how basic

font (with only size change can make things better:
