Try it the other way: drag the text layer onto the image layer's thumbnail.

Yes, masking also does it, but since there's no need for different opacities here, layer clipping would suffice, that's why i suggested it.

In Affinity however both are similarly easy to apply so the point above is a little irrelevant. In the end both provide the same result.

I really wish there was a step by step tutorial for this!  If there is anything other than the youtube which isn't narrated, I haven't found it.  I am not an experienced designer by any means but I've had success with some things thanks to research and trial and error but I could use more help on this.  Perhaps I'm not searching for the right topic on the forum but I'm not sure what other term to use.  Thanks!
