Nice tutorial for new ones. Welcome to the forum. 


People new to Paint.NET will need some screen shots...as noted above.


I would encourage you to edit your text so that u & ur become you, your & you're or even you are in the appropriate places ;)


The top cut part of the splatter needs to have a Gaussian Blur (@ 1 or 2)  or Feather & AA Assistant run on it to remove the jagginess. If you start at 4 times the size canvas you want the end result to be, the jagginess will be less apparent & using GB @ 2 works a treat for this. Then you can resize down by 25% :D


Knowledge is no burden to carry.
