SUPPLIES NEEDED

TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the beautiful artwork of Barbara Jensen.

The tube I used came with a close up.

You must purchase a license to use her art.

You can find Barbara's art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Winter Warmth by Rieka Rafita.

This is a PTU kit. You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Splendid ES.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

In this tut we'll be using Noise to create sparklies.

If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked **BLUE**.

Open a canvas, white background, 600x600 pixels.

Open RR_Paper10.

Size it to fit your canvas.

Open RR_Moon.

Place in upper left corner.

Open RR_Flower1.

Place in center at bottom of canvas.

(We'll place the rest of the elements on the siggy

Then move Flower1 layer on top of them.)

Open your tube.

Center it on canvas behind Flowers1.

I wanted her hand to show on top of the flowers.

Move your tube on top of the flowers.

Click on the flower layer.

Erase where her hand is.

Move your tube back behind the flowers.

Open your close tube.

Position this behind your tube.

Duplicate this layer.

Highlight your first close up layer.

Right click this layer in your layer pallet.

A window will pop up.

Go to Blending Options (second from top).

Use these settings:

Blending Mode: Luminosity

Opacity: 100%

Fill Opacity: 100%

Channels: Check R, G, B

Knockout: None

Check:

Blend Clipped Layers as Group

Transparency Shapes Layer

Blend If: Gray

This Layer: 255

Underlying Layer: 255

Highlight your second close up layer.

Right click.

Go to Blending Options.

Blend Mode: Screen

Set the rest as above.

These are the elements I used:

RR_Icicles

RR_Curtain

RR_Wreath2

RR_Bow2

RR_ChristmasBall1

RR_ChristmasBall2

RR_Snowdrift1

RR_Rubber

RR_Bow3

Position all elements as you like.

Place drop shadows on all layers except on:

Snowdrift1

Icicles

Moon

Paper

Grab a soft edged eraser.

Click on Paper layer.

Erase around the edges of Paper to soften.

**FOR ANIMATION**

Duplicate Icicles layer twice.

Do the same to Bow3 layer.

Click on your first Icicles layer.

Go to Filter, Noise, Add Noise.

When the Noise window pops up

Type 8 in the box for Amount.

Check Uniform and Monochromatic.

Do the same for your next two layers of Icicles.

Second layer: 10 for Noise

Third layer: 12 for Noise.

Click on your first Bow3 layer.

Add Noise: 12

Second layer: 14

Third layer: 16

Make a new layer.

Type your name.

I used color 293a6d.

Stroke, outside, 2, color d6d6fb.

MOST IMPORTANT!!

You must now do this:

Put the artist's name, website, and your license number

of the tube you used on the siggy!!

Add your name (ie: Designed by Your Name) behind this info.

Make sure this info is legible and clearly seen.

If you don't want to animate, Save as PNG.

YOU'RE DONE!!

(If you want to maintain your layers

Always Save as PSD first.

Then you can save it as a PNG.

When doing both these steps

It is important to change the title of the tag.

Example:

When I Save as PSD,

I always name the tag what I want.

Then, when saving as a PNG,

I add the number 1 behind the name of the tag.

Like this:

Winter Warmth, Save as PSD

Winter Warmth1, Save as PNG

Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD

Merging your tag into one layer only.)

**TO ANIMATE:**

Open the Animation Window.

You will need four frames.

Set the time for 0.

For the first frame:

Show only the first layers of:

Icicles

Bow3

Second frame:

Show the second layers only of both.

Third frame:

Show only the third layers of both.

Fourth frame:

Show the seconds layers only.

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

YOU'RE DONE!

I hope you had fun with this tut!

HUGS!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥

About Me

Savage
Hi Ya'll! I'm Savage and I'd like to welcome you to Redneck Tuts. These are not your ordinary tuts, as they are geared toward those of us that don't have "working knowledge" of Photoshop or PSP. My tuts are all done in PS. They are designed to show you different techniques that you may not know. I hope you learn something that you can use in your creations in the future. Please, just have fun and put your own spin on these tuts. Be original and shine! Love Ya! ♥
