Ok, time to find some appropriate picture to place it on our canvas. You can find it using Google search or feel free to use my picture. Copy this picture onto your canvas over the text layer (please don’t use images with small details or elements to make a good picture effect).

After that press Ctrl+J to copy the layer, then hide the copy (click on the eye, which indicates layer visibility) and go to lower layer. Select the lips area using the Polygonal Lasso Tool, then use Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection and press Delete to delete selected part of image.

Remove the selection with Ctrl+D, after that go back to the hidden copy of layer and make it visible again. Ok now make selection from the text (Ctrl+right click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette) and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection, after that press Delete to clear image in selection.

Now I would like to add some text to our poster. Get out the Horizontal Type Tool (just the regular one) and write out something like ‘DJ Music! Only best hits!’ on two lines with the same presets as background text. Use white color for words.
