TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Arthur Crowe.
I used two different tubes.
They came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find Arthur's art and get a license HERE.

SCRAPKIT:  Machine by Pimp'd Designz
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask3 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Trashed.
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 pp 09.
Resize to 90%.
Center on canvas.

Open Mask3
You'll see two layers in Mask3.
Only move the layer called Mask
onto your siggy.
Place this on top of your paper.
With this layer highlighted
hold your CTRL key down on your keyboard
and hit your mask icon in the layer palette
at the same time.
You'll see little marching ants now.
Highlight your paper layer.
Click the mask button
(this is a square with a circle in it)
at the bottom of the layer palette.
*You should have two pictures in your paper layer now.
One of your paper and one of the mask.*
Hide your mask layer.
Highlight the paper layer.
Right click in the layer palette.
Hit Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again.
Click Rasterize Layer.
Voila! You have a mask!
Now you can delete the gray mask layer.

Enlarge your new mask to your liking.

Place close to right side of frame 03.
Open chain 02.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.

Open your other regular sized tube.
(This is where I used the female.)
Again, use my tag as a guide for placement.
Duplicate this layer.
Highlight the first tube layer.
Go to Image in your toolbar.
In the drop down menu,
Choose Adjustments, Black & White.
Use the Default preset settings.
Click OK.
Now highlight the duplicated tube layer.
In the upper left corner of your Layer Palette,
Click the drop down arrow next to the word Normal.
Select Screen.
Leave the Opacity set at 100%.
(in the upper right corner of the Layer Palette)

Open bike.
Place a little off center toward right.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges
to get rid of the hard lines.

Resize to 75%.
Rotate to your liking.

Use my tag as a guide for placement for the following:
Close Up tube
gears, resize to 50%
screw 02
wa 01, resize to 75%
For wa 01,
I used Stroke, Center, Black, 3
Bevel & Emboss.
I used these settings:

Click Ok.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on the mask layer.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color ad9460.
Stroke, Center, 2, color bab9b9.
I also used a drop shadow.

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! ♥
