TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of Orkus Art.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Feel the Beat by Designs by Sarah.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Only By Request

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll make the bubbles move.
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 pp1.
Center on canvas.
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.
Set the Opacity to 40%.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges
to give it a soft look.

I used these elements:
stars 1 & 2
backdrop 1 & 2
frame6, resize to 90%

Open your tube.
Center on canvas.

On top of the tube
I used these elements:
piano keys2
cluster1, resize to 90%
head phones
music notes2
music notes

Now highlight your tube layer.
With a soft edged eraser
Erase any portion that extends out
and makes it look awkward.
I erased from her hips down.

Place a drop shadow on all layers
except the paper and splatter layers.
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color f281bd.
Stroke: Center, 3, Black
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Outer Glow

Bevel & Emboss settings:

Click OK.

Outer Glow settings:

Click Ok.

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.
(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.
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:
Rock It Softly, Save as PSD
Rock It Softly1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

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.
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Highlight your music notes2 layer.
Go over to the canvas and move this up and to the right.
Place it where you want your music notes to be at midpoint.
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 eight frames of animation.
Go ahead and click Play
to see your music notes float.
Now back to animating the rest of the siggy.

Go to the eighth animation frame in the animation window.
Duplicate this frame.
Highlight frame nine.
Now go to your Layer Palette.
Highlight your music notes2 layer.
Go to your canvas.
Move the music notes2 layer to a different position.
I moved it over to the left and up a little.
When you have them where you want them,
Highlight frame 8 in the animation window.
Hit the tween button.
Use the same settings as before
except Frames to Add will set at 4.

You will now have 13 animation frames.

Duplicate frame 13.
You'll have 14 frames of animation now.
Highlight frame 14.
Make sure the music notes2 layer
is still highlighted in your Layer Palette.
Go to your canvas.
Move the music notes back to the position
they started in.
Use animation frame 1 as a guide.

Highlight frame 13 in animation window.
Hit the tween button.
Use the same settings
with Frames to Add set on 6.

You now have 20 animation frames.

Click Play.
If you like what you see...

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

I hope you had fun with this tut
and that you can use the fading technique
in other taggies you create!

♥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! ♥
