Start a new document 700x400px with blue HEX: #043A79 background.

Switch over to the Channel's Pallete and create a new channel. (if the channel pallete is not visible, go to "Windows » Channels".

While still in the channels pallete and with the new channel (Alpha 1) selected, select the Type Tool and type your text. Make it as big as possible.


Pixelate » Fragment


Pixelate » Crystalize

Now duplicate this new text channel, to do this, drag the channel into the "create new channel" icon. This will not be Alpha 1 copy.

Go to Filter » Pixelate » Fragment. Repeat this step for 3 times.

Then go to Filter » pixelate » crystalize. Enter 6. (This depends on the size of your text. play around)

Go to Select » Select All, then Edit » Copy

Then go back to the layers pallete. Then Edit » Paste

Then go to Image » Adjustments » Hue/Saturation. Match the following settings:

 

Go to Image » Rotate Canvas » 90CW

Go to image » Rotate Canvas » 90CCW

Go back to the Channels Pallete. and click on the original text channel (Alpha 1) to select it.

Then go to Filter » Blur » Guassian Blur.

Enter: 8.0

Go to Image » Adjustments » Levels

Input Levels: [ 0 ] [ 0.15 ] [ 60 ]

Then go back to the Layer's Pallete

Create a new layer.
