TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. 
This tube came with a close up.
You must have a license to use his art.
You can find Elias's art and get your license HERE. 

SCRAPKIT:  Tropical Tango by Designs by Sarah.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Chikita.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
We'll be playing with Text Effects & Blending Options.

Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 70x700, transparent background.

Open sb_frame 2.
Move this a little bit toward the top of your canvas.
Open sb_frame 3.
Place on lower portion of frame 2.

Open sb_pp12.
Place behind frames.
Grab an eraser.
Erase along the outside edge of both frames.
I also erased between the rectangles of frame 2.

Open your tube.
Place it on top of frame 3.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement.
Open your close up tube.
Position this behind frame 3.
Center her face inside the circle part of frame 3.
Highlight frame 3 layer.
Grab your magic wand and click inside the circle.
Highlight your close up tube layer.
Go up to your toolbar.
Click Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
With your close up tube layer still highlighted,
Right Click.
Click on Blending Options in the pop up window.
Use these settings below.

Click OK.

Now we're going to play with the elements.
These next layers will go behind your tube
and on top of frame 3.
(I grabbed a soft edged eraser
and erased around the hard lines of the sand
to give it a softer look.)
sb_ swirl 2
(I rotated netting 90 degrees ClockWise.)
These next elements I resized at 15%.
sb_shell 2
(I placed the coconut on top of my tube
so it looks like she's holding it in her hand.)
These were resized to 25%:
On top of frame 2, beneath my tube
I placed these elements:
sb_palm fronds 1 & 2
I resized fronds to 50%.
sb_swirl 4
I rotated swirl 4:
90 degrees CounterClockwise
and resized to 50%.
Then I duplicated this layer.
I flipped it horizontally
and resized this layer to 50%.
This was placed in the upper left corner.
sb_flower 5
sb_flower 1:
I resized flower 1 to 30%
Then I duplicated it
and flipped it horizontally.

Open sb-wave.
Center at bottom of canvas.
Reduce size to 50%.

Place a drop shadow on all your layers
except for pp12 and your close up tube.

Make a new layer.
Type your name in the font of your choice.
I used the eyedropper tool to choose a color from the tag.
With your name layer highlighted
Go to your toolbar.
Click Layer.
Layer Style.
Bevel and Emboss.
These are the settings I used:

Click Ok.

Go back to your toolbar and select Layer again.
Layer Style.
Use these settings:

Click OK.

Back to Layer.
Layer Style.
Outer Glow.
These are the settings I used:

Click Ok.
Then I placed a drop shadow on the name layer.

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.

Save as PSD to maintain layers.
Then save as PNG, remembering to use a number behind your sig title.
I hope you had fun with this tut!

♥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

My Photo
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! ♥
