TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork
of Elias Chatzoudis. 
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find his art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT & WORDART: Aloha Summer by Rieka Rafita.
The Scrapkit is a PTU kit.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!

Open RR_Wordart2.
Place it in the center,

On this layer, I placed:

Place a drop shadow on everything
except the paper layer.
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer on top of all layers.
Type the name you want in the font you want.
I used a bright yellow for the name.
Stroke, 3, Center, color fd9603.

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! ♥
