Mona Lisa Overdone?

The new header is here, courtesy of the font "Mona Lisa Solid ITC TT", with a little massaging in Photoshop. Now if I could just remember what it was I did to get that "Neon Marquee" look...

What DID you do to get that look and will there be a 15 min. intermission after each post?

Photoshop:
File- new (size and bkgrd. color as desired)
Text- Mona Lisa Solid ITC TT
Warp Text- Arch 12%
Size font to fit
Dupe Layer x2
Filter Stylize Dupe Layer 2- Glowing Edges (Max all Settings) x2
Dup Layer 1- blur- Gaussian Blur 35%
Opacity Dup layer 2- adjust as desired
Flatten layers

Actual size will depend on how your photo host sizes your image. Flicker has four sizes, you can also tweak the pixels. Picasa has four sizes, no tweaking.

Munkay- I can't decide if you should be the chef, or a dancing girl!
