Preppy Text V4
For this tutorial you will need...
• Any pattern or you can use this one
• Your desired pattern defined.
• A pre-done gradient or a desired colour scheme for the gradient.
First type out your text.
Double click the layer to bring up the 'blending options' box, then go to 'stroke'. Using your desired gradient match your setting's to mine but don't press OK.
Now go to 'pattern overlay' and using the provided pattern, match your setting's to mine and press OK.
Duplicate the layer and match your setting's to mine.
Go to Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic
When this comes up, press OK.
Set the cell size to 9px and press OK.
Now drag the duplicated layer underneath the original text layer if you haven't already, also make sure your setting's for that layer match mine.
Hold down Ctrl + T (or go to edit > transform > free transform) and rotate it a little by moving your cursor upwards so the text tilts to the bottom left.
This is my result...
