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

SCRAPKIT: Just Treats by Mellow's Graphics.
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask9 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Arvigo.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels,
transpartent background.

Open Paper14.
Resize to 85%

Open Mask9.
You'll see three layers in Mask9.
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.
Now you can delete the gray mask layer.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.
I used these elements:
bat1, resize to 50%
ghost, resize to 65%
sign, resize to 80%
raven, resize to 45%
broom, resize to 75%
polish2, resize to 35%
books, resize to 40%
bone2, resize to 35%
candy, resize to 75%
spider1, resize to 40%
candyCorn, resize to 35%

Open your tube.
If you have a Close Up tube,
use that now.
Center inside moon.
Now place it behind the moon layer.

Highlight moon layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the moon.
You may need to hold the Shift key down
and click several times.
Continue clicking until the whole moon
has marching ants around it.

Highlight your Close Up tube layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Highlight your moon layer.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Screen.
In the upper right corner of the Layer Palette,
Leave Opacity at 100%.

Open your regular sized tube.
You may need to resize it.
I resized mine to 60%.
Place to your liking.

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
Paper & Mask layer
Close Up tube layer

Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used Black.
Stroke, Outside, 3, color fea202
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 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:
Treats Only, Save as PSD
Treats Only1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

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! ♥
