Lets Begin :

Start by opening a 800 X 650 transparent canvas.

Now open your Wheel element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. 
Go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Xero - then click Radiance.
(The menu below will open, you are welcome to use my settings or your own, the choice is always yours. I post mine so that you know how I reached the effect I got, but you can always change the settings to reach your own desired effect.)


Then click OK.

Now go to Effects - then go to 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow
(Again, these are the settings that I use, you are welcomed to use them, or change them to your own liking.)
**Please see note on screen shot below**

Then click Ok.

Now using your Move Tool - position your Wheel element to the left side of your canvas. 

Now activate your Text Tool - set your font, size & color.
For my name I used the following :
Font : Happy

Background Colors : ( I used several different fall colors, one for each letter, you can do the same, or you can make it all one color, or multiple colors of your choice)
N - #873100
i - #c96f01
k - #e9b700
k - #b4b100
i - #873100

Once you have your name the way you want it, then click Apply.
Now position your name center on your canvas.
(Leave your name as it is for the moment, we will come back to it.)

Now in your layers pallet - right click on your Wheel layer - then click Duplicate. Go to Image - click Mirror. Now use your move tool to position your duplicated Wheel element to the right end of your name.
(You want both of your Wheel elements to be behind your name. So in your layers pallet - make sure your Wheel layers are moved down under your name layer.)

Now open your Wood Planks elements - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 75%. Now using your Move Tool & position your Wood Plank on the left side of your name.
