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

SCRAPKIT:  Pretty in Punk by Designs by Sarah.
This is a PTU kit.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used BattleLines.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Transparent background.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement of elements.

Open Frame 1.
Center on canvas.

Open Paper 2.
Place behind Frame 1 layer.
Highlight frame layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside frame 1.
Highlight paper layer.
Go to Select in your toolbar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
With paper layer still highlighted
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Pallete.
Set the Opacity to 20%.

Open Frame 3.
Center toward bottom of canvas.
Open Frame 2.
Center at top of taggie.

Between Frame 1 & Frame 3
I placed these elements:
ribbon 1
glitter 1, resize to 50%
print 2
flower 1, centered in Frame 2

Open your tube.
Place her behind Frame 3.
Duplicate this layer.
Place the duplicate on top of all layers.
Grab an eraser.
Erase this tube so the frame shows
like in my taggie.

Between Frame 3 & Frame 2
I used these elements:
pocket, duplicate layer
(resize one pocket to 35%
one pocket to 25%)
button 1 & 2, resize to 50%
barbed wire 2
(Erase the portion of barbed wire 2
that covers the buttons,
leaving the barbed wire showing
in center of button to make it look like
the buttons are sewn into the wire.)
flower 5, resize to 35%
flower 3, resize to 25%
heart 1
heart 2, resize to 75%
stars 1

When you are finished placing the elements
Your duplicated tube layer should still be the top layer.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used Black.
Stroke, Outside, 3, color fe03ba.

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! ♥
