You can get a different Zoom Blur effect using the same Text and Zoom Blur settings just by changing your canvas size prior to applying the Zoom Blur.  I chose this canvas size (500x150), because I liked the effect at this size.

Color Variations

For a different look, try these various pattern-changing techniques.

For this example, I started with the same glitter image, but I "colorized" it first before using it for my Background Pattern.



To "colorize" the glitter image, I added a New Raster Layer, then flooded the new layer with the Foreground-Background Gradient with these settings (Linear, Angle=135, Repeats=2, Invert UNchecked; Foreground Color=#109A10, Background Color=#C0FFC0).



I changed the Blend Mode of the flooded gradient layer to Soft Light and then merged the visible layers.

I set the Background Pattern to this merged glitter image.  I set the Foreground Color to #005035 (I used my color picker to choose a color from the darkest section of the merged image). I set the Background Color to #00B7D6 (I used my color picker to choose a color from the lightest section of the merged image).  The Foreground Gradient has the same settings as step #6 of the tutorial.



All the other tutorial steps are the same except: step #20, I changed the Foreground Color to #80A79A (this color is 50% opacity of the Foreground Color in the screenshot just above).

For this example, I used Auburn Angel's Purple #2 Metallic Glitter Tile, but I changed it a bit before I used it for my Background Pattern.



First I chose one of the three glitter images and duplicated the Frame 1 layer.  Then I changed the Blend Mode of the duplicate layer to Multiply, and then merged the visible layers.

I set the Background Pattern to this merged glitter image.  I set the Foreground Color to #340B59 and the Background Color to #D77BFD (both colors were picked from the merged image).  The Foreground Gradient has the same settings as step #6 of the tutorial.



All the other tutorial steps are the same except for these: step #20, I did not change the Foreground Color; step #21, I set the Opacity of the Zoom layer to 30% (instead of 25).

For this example, I combined two (2) Auburn Angel's Metallic Glitter Tiles.



First I created the merged image to use for the Background Pattern.  I started with the same teal01_tlg image that I used for the tutorial example (for me, that was image 1). First I chose one of the three glitter images and duplicated the Frame 1 layer.  Then I changed the Blend Mode of the duplicate layer to Multiply, and then merged the visible layers.

I set the Background Pattern to this merged glitter image.  I set the Foreground Color to #340B59 and the Background Color to #D77BFD (both colors were picked from the merged image).  The Foreground Gradient has the same settings as step #6 of the tutorial.



All the other tutorial steps are the same except for these: step #20, I did not change the Foreground Color; step #21, I set the Opacity of the Zoom layer to 30% (instead of 25).
For this example, I used an orange glitter tile that I made myself, since Auburn Angel didn't have an orange metallic glitter tile for me to play with.



To make my orange-spice glitter, I created a New Image 78x110 (same as Auburn Angel) on a transparent background.  On the Materials palette, I set the Foreground to Gradient and loaded a multi-colored orange gradient that I had, using the angle and repeats that I liked.  Then I flooded the Raster 1 layer with the gradient.  I duplicated the layer twice for a total of three layers (like the other glitter tiles).  To each of the three layers I added random Noise (a variation of 13 to 15%). Then to each of the three layers I added VM Natural Sparkle (I used the default settings for one layer and just moved the Random Seed slider for the other two layers).

I set the Background Pattern to the first orange-spice glitter image and followed the tutorial method for choosing which image I liked best.  I set the Foreground Color to #8F320B and the Background Color to #FF8910 (both colors were picked from the glitter image).  The Foreground Gradient has the same settings as step #6 of the tutorial.



All the other tutorial steps are the same except for these: step #20, I did not change the Foreground Color; step #21, I set the Opacity of the Zoom layer to 32% (instead of 25).
