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

SCRAPKIT: Rose and Brown by Sweet-Pinup.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used VivianByWiesher Design.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll be making the train move.
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Flood fill with the color of your choice.

Open BG3.
Resize to 35%
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

These are the elements I used:
06, resize to 15%
26, resize to 35%
15, resize to 40%

Open your tube.
I resized mine to 25%.
Place to your liking.

Continue with these elements:
24, resize to 15%
08, resize to 15%
30, resize to 25%
09, resize to 10%
Duplicate this layer.
One layer will be on the left side of your word art.
One will be the right of your word art.

Now let's do your word art.
Make a new layer.
Type Love You! and your name.
These are the effects I used:
color f5c7b8
Stroke, Outside, 3, color 2e1a0c
Bevel & Emboss (color f714a4)

Outer Glow

Drop Shadow

I placed a drop shadow on all layers except BG3.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

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.


Open the Animation Window.
Set the time for .2
Show all layers in the first frame
except your word art.

Go to your Layer Palette.
Move the train to the right side of your tag
so only the front of it barely shows.

Go back to your animation window.
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame
making frame 2.

With frame 2 highlighted in the animation window,
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Now move your train
so the flower on the back end of it
is even with the right end of the bench.

Highlight frame 1 in the animation window.
See those little squares in the animation tool bar
just below the frames?
They're going in a diagonal downward slope.
That's your Tween button.
Click it.
A window will pop up.
Use these settings:

You will now have 11 frames of animation.

Highlight frame 11 in the animation window.
Now go to your Layer Palette and
unhide your word art.
Move your word art to the right of your tag.
You only want the first letter to show on your tag.
You should see the whole train and
that first letter of your word art on your tag.

Go back to the animation window.
Duplicate frame 11.

Highlight frame 12.
Go to your Layer Palette.
Move the train over to the left of your tag.
Only a very small part of the back end of your train
should be seen.
Now move your word art to the center of your tag.

Highlight frame 11 in the animation window.
Click that Tween button.
Use the same settings as before.
You will now have 21 frames.

Duplicate frame 21.
In frame 22,
set the time to .5
Hide the train layer in the Layer Palette.

Click Play in the animation window.

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 this 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! ♥
