11. Ok now you have a nice text tail. But I think that the picture is kind of empty. So let's add some catchy element. With the Tail layer selected Alt + Drag away on the tail to make a quick copy of the layer. Name it Tail Big. Ctrl + click Tail Big icon in the layer's palette to select it, then go to the girls head and select a yellow color from her hair you like the best and after that fill your selection with the selected color by pressing Alt + Backspace. But your Tail Big layer is on top of the Tail layer and it's hiding it. Drag it under the tail layer in the layers palette or do the same thing by simply presing Ctrl + {. Now with the Tail Big layer still selected, pres Ctrl + T to make it bigger, don't worry about the tail we will deal with it later, just make it a qurter bigger then the first tail, drag it down and a little left till you think they colyde togever very nice. Now select the Eraser tool by pressing E, choose a sharp small brush in the options pannel and delete that part of the tail that is showing over tha first tail. Now it's time to deal with this little space that is showing betwean our two tales. Select the Brush tool by presing B, in the options pannel chose a small and sharp brush, Alt + click on your Tail Big to select it's color, and simply paint that gap away.

12. Now Alt + Drag away on your Tail Big to make another quick copy. Place the layer under Layer Big and name it Tale The Biggest. Color it in blue which you can select from girls shirt the way you already know haw. Scale it, and place it the way you did with Tail Big. Now you have a nice tail composition
  
don't you think? But wait a second I used Red color for the text and Tail layer just to make it more visibale, but I'd like them to be black. The Tail layer shod be no problem for you to color now, but for the type there are 2 ways of doing it. 1. You can right - click on the ?1981 was a f*$&ing great year ? layer in the layers palette and choose Rasterize Type from the appearing menu, by doing this you will transform type to pixels and haw to color pixel layers you know already, but also you will lose the ability to edit the text whenever you like (god knows how many birthdays can be? ))) ). 2. You Ctrl + double click the type layers icon in the layers palette, you will see that all the type layer gets selected, and in the tools options panel click on the color box to choose the needed color, this time is black, and after that be sure to click on the Commit any current edits button in the same panel. Here you go everything is black now.

13. Now I think it's better to group all our type related layers. To do that simply Ctrl + click the type layer and all tail layers and press Ctrl + G to group them. Double - click on the group's name to change it to Type. Now drag the group on the Create new layer button in the layers palette to duplicate it. Name the new group Type Final. Click on the eye icon next to Type group name to make it disappear, you will probably need it if have to make some type changes. Now click on the arrow next to the name of  Type Final layer to show the elements inside. Go to the ?1981 was a f*$&ing great year ? layer and rasterize it by left - clicking on it an choosing Rasterize Type from the appearing menu. Now select all layers inside Type Final group by Ctrl + click on every one of them and merge them together by left - click on one of the selected layers and choose Merge layers. Now you have only one layer which contains the type and all tails. Change its blending mode to Pin Light and lower the opacity to 90% to some background thru.
