Today’s tutorial will teach you how to create a Disney’s Frozen text effect, using Layer Styles, and a texture. As the Frozen font used by Disney is probably custom created, I’m not able to reproduce the font, itself.

Tools used in this tutorial:
Adjustment Layers: By using an Adjustment Layers, you’re able to change targeted areas of your photo without damaging the original layer. These can either be applied to the full image, or specific areas using selections or Layer Masks. At any point in the future, you can either make changes to the adjustment, hide it, or delete it completely.
The Type Tool: Click and type! If you’ve ever used a word processing application, you already know how it works! Up on the Options Bar, you can change your typeface, font size, style, color, and so on!
Layer Styles: If you’re looking to add effects to your layers, you’ll likely want to use Layer Styles. Whether it’s an outer glow, a few shadows, or a bevel to give it depth, the possibilities are endless!
Wave Filter: This filter can be used for many reasons, but is often used to rough up the edges of a perfect shape, such as a square or circle. To be able to edit the values later on, make sure to convert your layer into a Smart Object first.
Layer Masks: If there’s an area of your layer that you wish to hide (or bring back), Layer Masks will help you do that. Painting using a black brush will hide portions of the layer, and painting with a white brush will reveal them.
