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

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

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Bickham Script Two.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll make sparklies.
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 pp 02.
Resize to 90%.
Center on canvas.
Grab a soft edge eraser.
Erase the edges to create a soft look.

I used these elements:
fame star 02, resize to 50%
Duplicate this layer.
Resize the new layer to 50%
reel 01
camera, resize to 80%
director chair, resize to 75%
megaphone, resize to 65%
clapboard, resize to 50%
*Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.*

Open your tube.
Place to your liking.
*With this layer highlighted,
Grab your magic wand.
Click on the lightest parts of your tube's dress.
Hold the Shift key down on your keyboard
as you click until you have all the light part
surrounded with marching ants.
Go to Edit in your tool bar.
Click Copy.
Go back to Edit.
Click Paste.
Duplicate this layer.
Highlight the first layer of the dress.
Go to Filter in the tool bar.
Choose Noise then Add Noise.
Amount: 5
Highlight the second layer of the dress.
Noise, Add Noise
Amount: 7

Highlight your tube layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click the darker parts of the dress.
Hold the Shift key down on your keyboard
until all the darker parts have
marching ants around them.
Go to Edit.
Click Copy.
Go back to Edit.
Click Paste.
Duplicate this layer.
Highlight the first dark dress layer.
Go to Filter.

On top of the tube I used

glasses, resize to 50%
charm purse, resize to 65%
martini, resize to 50%

Place a drop shadow on all layers
pp 02
*No drop shadow on the dress layers.*
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Open wa 05, resize to 20%
Place this on the director chair.
*Duplicate this layer.*

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color fbf9e5
Stroke: Outside, 3, color ae8e0d
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Drop Shadow

Bevel & Emboss settings:

Click OK.

Satin settings:
(color fbfcaa)

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:
Star Baby, Save as PSD
Star Baby1, 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
All layers should show in the first frame
sparkle, second layer
wa 05, second layer
light and dark dress second layers

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.
Hide these layers:
sparkle, first layer
light and dark dress first layers
Keep the first layer of wa 05 showing.

That's it!
Only two frames of animation.

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

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

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! ♥
