SUPPLIES NEEDED

TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of
Elias Chatzoudis.
The tube I used came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Pink Dreams by Rieka Rafita.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Delilah.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
In this tut we'll make flowers fall.
If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked *BLUE*
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Flood fill with the color of your choice.

Open Paper3.
Center on canvas.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

I used these elements:
box, increase size to 110% in height only.
frame2
ribbon2
flower4
flower5
FlowerLeaves, resize to 30%

Open your tubes.
Place the Close Up tube
behind the regular sized tube.
I flipped the Close Up tube Horizontally.
Place to your liking.

Duplicate the Close Up tube layer.
Highlight the first Close Up layer.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Select Luminosity.
Leave the Opacity set at 100%.

Highlight the second Close Up tube layer.
Go back up to the down arrow.
Click it.
Choose Soft Light.

Open FlowerScatters.
I flipped mine Horizontally
to fit the tag better.
Place this toward the top of the taggie.
Now place this layer between your tube layers.
It should be behind your regular sized tube
but on top of your Close Up tubes.

On top of the tube I used:
crown
button2, resize to 50%
flower3, resize to 30%

Place a drop shadow on all layers
except the doodle layer.
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color fbf1d7.
Stroke: Outside, 2, color c59b0b
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Outer Gow
Drop Shadow

Bevel & Emboss settings:
Click OK.

Outer Glow settings:
color ffffbe

Click OK.

MOST IMPORTANT!!
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.

If you don't want to animate, Save as PNG.
YOU'RE DONE!!
(If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.
When doing both these steps
It is important to change the title of the tag.
Example:
When I Save as PSD,
I always name the tag what I want.
Then, when saving as a PNG,
I add the number 1 behind the name of the tag.
Like this:
Crown Me Now, Save as PSD
Crown Me Now1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

**TO ANIMATE**
Open your animation window.
Set the time for .2
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame.
You will now have frames 1 & 2.
Highlight frame 2 in the animation window.
Now go over to your Layer Palette.
Highlight the FlowerScatters layer.
Go to your canvas and
Move the flowers down toward
the bottom of your tag.
Where you move the flowers
is where they will stop falling.
Now go back to your animation window.
Highlight frame 1.
See that icon that looks like a slanted row of squares?
Place your cursor over it.
It will say: Tweens Animation Frames.
Click it.
A new window pops up.
Use these settings:

Click OK.

You should now have 12 frames of animation.
Go ahead and click Play
to see your flowers fall.

If you like what you see...

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

YOU'RE DONE!
I hope you had fun with this tut
and that you can use the tween technique
in other taggies you create!
HUGS!

♥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

Savage
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! ♥
