    Illustrator illiterate...can do this in Photoshop but not Illustrator!!

    MrNaSTay

      I'm working on a project that must be done in Illustrator and am having a bit of a hard time figuring it out.  I'm designing a Cycling jersey for work and what I'm trying to do is add some floral designs within the text of our logo ( it's a women's jersey ).  I'm working with an EPS file of the logo that was done a few years ago ( not by me ) and am able to open it in Photoshop, select some floral, swirly type brushes and using the Magic Wand tool I am working on each letter individually to get the look I want.  Hopefully you understand this...I am on a different computer but will try to post an image later if it helps anyone get what I'm trying to.

       

      The problem is when I try to bring it back into Illustrator there's no paths and it's a white background, not transparent.  I've been researching this for 2 weeks now and for the life of me cannot figure out how to do it the proper way!?  Any help would be appreciated!

       

      Thanks!
