Making an adjustment confined to a specific layer

I'm attempting to fine tune just the text that reads "Quality tile installation". I want to increase the saturation without affecting the rest of the document. This, and each line of text, the gradient, and logo are all on separate layers. I've tried using a saturation adjustment layer, in combination with layer masks, the brush tool, and switching the foreground to background.  No matter what I try I can't seem to confine the adjustment to just this line

Hi @Mike Priester 

 

Hold down Option (Alt in Windows), position the pointer over the line dividing two layers in the Layers panel (the pointer changes to two overlapping circles), and then click.

About layer clipping masks

(Or right click the Saturation layer OR use the Layer menu.)

Control + Alt + G

Command + Option + G

You can also put the layer in a folder.

Set the folder mode to Normal.

Put any adjustment layers into this folder. They will only work for layers in that folder.
