New Sketch for Bird is the Word Challenge Blog - CHARM

I made this digital wallpaper for my computer desktop with this sketch.
To create circular text in Adobe Photoshop Elements like the “You’re my lucky charm” on this lo.
1.Open a new page, click file, click new then click blank file. In the pop up window select the size you want, I used 12 x 12 inches, then click OK
2. Select the Text tool from the tool menu. Select the Font and Size. Click about half way down on your page. Type the sentiment you want, space it so it so it goes all the way across your page.
3. Select the text layer in the layer pallet. Click Image; rotate then 180 to flip the text upside down.
4. Drag the handles to make your text about twice the height. Select the check to accept.
5. With the text layer selected in the layer pallet, click on Filter, click Distort then click Polar Coordinates. Be sure the circle next to Rectangular to polar is selected. Click OK. Select the check to accept.
