    put the text on a layer above the clouds image
    then try using some different blending modes, like overlay or screen or
    color
    they let the background blend with the text in different ways where you can
    see through to the clouds

    at adobe exchange you can download some transparent styles and see how they
    were made
    PS Bubbles and Laurie's glass are 2 that I use a lot

    Not sure quite what you have in mind but....
    Click on the text button and hold down the mouse button until the
    alternatives appear - choose Type mask - when you position the cursor
    everything turns red (Quick mask mode) Type your text, deselect the type
    tool and the text turns into a workpath.
    You can do all sorts of things then but I suggest - ctrl J - which creates a
    new layer from your selection, if you then double click on the new layer in
    the layers palette you get blending options - try bevel to make the text
    stand out if you like.

    Another option is to save your clouds picture as a jpeg and then use that
    picture as a pattern. to do this just open up the jpg picture , select all
    go to the edit drop down menu and select define pattern tell the name box
    yes and then with the text layer selected click the little black finish
    symbol in the bottom of the layers pallette and select the apply pattern
    choose your jpg from the the choices it gives you. you can play with the
    scale if needed.
