TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of Keith Garvey. 
The tube I used is a Limited Edition
and comes with come four layers
I used three, including tw0 Close Ups.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find Keith's art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT:  Mystique Collab by Designs by Sarah.
This is a FTU kit.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Bickham Script Two

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Transparent background.

Open paper 11.
Center on canvas.
Use a soft edged eraser
and erase around the edges to create a soft look.
Open frame 2.
Go to Filter in your toolbar.
Click Noise, Add Noise.
Type in 35
Check Uniform.
Click Ok.

Open crystal 3.
Flip Horizontally.
Place over toward left.
Use my taggie as a guide.

Open your regular size tube.
Duplicate this three times.
You will now have four layers of this tube.
*Hide all but one.
Position the unhid layer over the crystal
so she looks center inside one pane.
You'll need to play around to get her just so.
Now hide this layer so you can see the crystal clearly.
Highlight crystal layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Choose a pane in the crystal
and click until it is surrounded by marching ants.
Hold the Shift key down on your keyboard
while clicking, you may have to click several times.
(It's ok if these ants go outside where you want them.
We'll use an eraser to fine tune the tube layer.)
Refer to my tag for guidance.
Now highlight the tube layer you just positioned.
Go to Select in your toolbar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.*
Now repeat the steps marked *
for the next three tube layers that are hid.
When you have your tubes where you want them
and are happy with it
Grab an eraser and
erase any portion of the tubes overlapping each other.
Now your crystal should look similar to mine.

To make your tubes look like mine in the crystal
Highlight one tube layer at a time.
Follow these steps for each tube layer:
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Pallet.
Next to the word 'Normal' is a down arrow.
Click that and select Soft Light.
Leave the Opacity setting at 100%.
We're done with the crystal.

Open cluster.
Center on canvas.
Go to Filter in your toolbar.
Select Sharpen.
Click Sharpen More.

Open sparkles 2.
Duplicate this layer.
Merge these two layers together.

Ok. Now open a close up tube.
Place this next to the crystal.

Open hill.
Resize to 75%.
Place in front of Close Up tube.
Open flower 1.
Resize to 25%, flip Horizontally.
Open gem.
Resize to 35%.

Open star 2.
Resize to 50%.
Go to Filter.
Noise, Add Noise.
Type 25.
Check Uniform.

Open beads.
Resize to 75%.
Place wherever you like.

Now we'll be playing with the crystal ball.
Open crystal ball.
Resize to 75%.
Place in lower right corner.
Open your Close Up tube.
(You may need to resize her.
It will depend on what size the Close Up is.)
Position your tube so her face is centered in the crystal ball.
Again, you may want to play around with this a bit.
A good way to do this is to place her behind the crystal ball.
Sometimes it's easier to center that way.
Then move her back on top of the ball.
Highlight crystal ball layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside the crystal ball.
I only clicked the center,
and the white spots.
Some of the ball around the edges
I did not click with the magic wand.
Now highlight your tube layer.
Go to Select, Inverse.
Hit Delete on your keyboard.
Go back to Select, click Deselect.
With your tube layer still highlighted
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Pallete.
Using the down arrow
Click Soft Light.
Leave the Opacity setting at 100%.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used black.
Stroke, Outside, 3, color 272cfd

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! ♥
