The tube I used came with a Close Up.

SCRAPKIT: I used two kits for this tut:

and can be snagged HERE.

Let's have some fun!

You are done with this mask layer.

Open pp9.
Center on canvas.
Move mask19b on top of pp9 layer.
With mask19b layer highlighted
hold your CTRL key down on your keyboard

at the same time.
You'll see little marching ants now.
Highlight your paper layer.
Click the mask button

One of your paper and one of the mask.*

Right click in the layer palette.

Now you can delete the gray mask layer.
Resize your new mask to your liking.

Open your regular sized tube.
Place to your liking.

Ok. Now we'll do the word art.
You will need two new layers.

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! ♥
