The first step is to make a new layer with a black background(Step to simple to be shown)

Then in a new layer add your background chalkboard

Now make white text on a black background: the less solid you want your text the smaller you make it(for now) later the text will be expanded.

Add noise to the text

There has been a question asked about spray can like paint. You could use this technique to replicate spray paint.

I think lends itself to many other things too.

Very good tute.

UPDATE:

Rather than small text 1 noise and blur Ive found its easier to do this

noise

gausian blur r=1

noise

gausian blur r=1 noise dents scale=4gausian blur 1

(if edges are still to rough: feather selection)

and still use curves and the duplicated layer for tone adjustment

@barbieq25: Im thinking this could be used as a border

Great guide Luke. Really looks like a chalk board. This is why I love Paint.net it's free but there's so much you can do with it. Now all I need is to find out if there's a way to make letters look like gold.
