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

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

LD Chaplin for “I Am Queen”
La Jolla ES for the name

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 journal.
Rotate and place toward left of canvas.

Open notebook paper.
Resize to 50%, rotate slightly.

Open computer.
Center on canvas.

These are the elements I used:
strip 02, resize to 90%
print 03, resize to 35%
hair pin 01, resize to 50%
fastener, resize to 35%
button 02
camera, resize to 35%
skully, resize to 75%
music note, resize to 35%
ribbon 03, resize to 35%
kiss, resize to 50%
tiara, resize to 35%

Now we'll work on the computer screen.
Open your tube.
Duplicate this 2-3 times.
(This depends on the tube you are using.)
I duplicated my tube 3 times.
Hide all but the first tube layer.
Center this layer on screen.
*Highlight the computer layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click on the computer screen.
Highlight your tube layer.
Go to Select in your toolbar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.*

Open pp 08, resize to 60%.
Place this behind the tube you just worked with.
Repeat the steps marked * above
but highlight your paper layer
where it says “tube layer.”
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.
Where it says Opacity
Enter 80%.

Unhide and arrange your other tube layers
behind paper layer.
When you are happy with the result
Highlight your top duplicated tube layer.
Right Click in your Layer Palette.
Select Merge Down.
Do this so all your duplicated tube layers are one layer.
Repeat the steps marked * for this tube layer.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the drop down arrow next to the word Normal.
Select Luminosity.
Leave Opacity set at 100%.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on:
Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type: I Am Queen
I used color ec62f6
Stroke, Outside, 4, Black
and Bevel and Emboss.
These are settings for Bevel & Emboss

Type your name.
I used the same color as “I Am Queen”
Stroke, Outside, 2, Black.
I also used drop shadow and
Bevel & Emboss, the same settings as the name.

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! ♥
