The final result: (link to larger images:http://www.flickr.com/photos/lukemeish/sets/72157626546524818/)


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


Gausian blur at radius 1





And you can adjust the opacity of the color dodge layer to adjust the peak whiteness

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


gausian blur r=1


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
