TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Jose Cano.
This tube came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find his tubes and get a license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Happy Birthday to Me by Designs by Sarah. 
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Cotillion for the name.
WallowHmkBold for Spoil Me.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

We'll be making the background flash
and the confetti move in this tut.
If you don't wish to animate,
Skip the parts in Blue.

Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Flood fill with color of choice.
I used White.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement of elements.

Open pp5.
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.
Set the Opacity at 65%
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

Open pp8.
Use a soft edged eraser
to erase around the edges.
Let pp5 show around pp8.

Open backdrop4.
Open backdrop5.
Center on canvas.
If not animating, choose only one backdrop.

Open your Close Up tube.
Place to your liking.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
In the drop down menu,
Click Luminosity.
Set Opacity at 65%.

Open backdrop1.
Open backdrop2.
If you are not animating,
choose only one backdrop.

Open balloon2, 3 and 4.
Resize all to 50%

Open your regular sized tube.
Place to your liking.

Open cake1.
Resize to 90%.
Place in front of your tube.

These are the other elements I used:
drink3, resize to 65%
bow2, resize to 60%
drink2, resize to 50%
cupcake2, resize to 50%
present1, resize to 50%
present3, resize to 40%
cupcake3, resize to 50%
candy1, resize to 25%

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on:
paper layers
backdrop layers
Close Up tube layer

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color 6ec9f4.
Stroke: Outside, 2, Black
Drop Shadow
Bevel & Emboss

Outer Glow (color ffffbe)

Make another new layer.
Type Spoil Me.
I used color fbbcd9.
Stroke: Outside, 2, color fb4fc8.
Bevel & Emboss

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 are not animating:
Save as PSD to maintain layers.
Then save as PNG.

Hide these layers in the Layer Palette:

Open the Animation Window.
Set the time for .2
Show the rest of the layers in the first animation frame.
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame
and make frame 2.
With animation frame 2 highlighted,
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Highlight the confetti layer.
On your canvas,
Move the confetti down and to the right.

Go back to the animation window.
Highlight the first frame.
See that icon that looks like a slanted row of squares?
Place your cursor over it.
It will say: Tweens Animation Frames.
Click it.
A new window pops up.
Use these settings:

Now you'll have ten frames of animation.
For every even numbered frame:
Hide these layers in your Layer Palette
For your odd numbered frames:

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! ♥
