Jamie Kidd.
You must have a license to use this art.

SCRAPKIT:  Veridian Fantasy by Designs by Sarah

FONT OF CHOICE: I used CenturionES.

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 pp1.
Center on canvas.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

Open frame1.
Place in upper half of canvas.

Open your tube.
Place to your liking.
Duplicate this layer twice.
Hide one duplicated layer.

Move the visible duplicated tube layer under frame1 layer.
Place inside left side of frame1.
Position to your liking.
I flipped mine Horizontally.
Go to upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Choose Screen.

Highlight frame1 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame where your duplicated tube is.
Highlight your duplicated tube layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Open pp2.
Open frame4.
With frame4 layer highlighted,
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click on the frame.
Highlight pp2 layer.
Go to Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit Delete on your keyboard.
Back to Select.
Click Deselect.
Right Click in your Layer Palette.
Click Merge Down.

I used these elements:
flower1, resize to 50%
feather, resize to 750%
trunk, resize to 50%
bow1, resize to 80%
gramophone1, flip Horizontally
branch2, resize to 95%

Now go grab the tube you hid earlier.
Move it beneath frame4.
Unhide it.
Place it inside the frame to your liking.
With the tube layer highlighted,
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow.
Choose Luminosity.
Leave Opacity at 100%.

Highlight frame4 layer.
Grab the Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.

Highlight your tube layer.
Go to Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit Delete on your keyboard.
Back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Place a drop shadow on your layers except:
paper layer
duplicated tube layers

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color: 0268a6
Stroke, Outside, 2, color 6dbbce
I also used a drop shadow and
Bevel & Emboss
Outer Glow



Use the settings above.
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.

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! ♥
