You Will Need
*Paint Shop Pro - I used PSPX but any version will work just as well.
Tube of choice. I used the fabulous work of Keith Garvey which can be found here.
*Scrap Kit of choice - I used a fabulous PTU kit from CBJ called Happy Days,
which can be purchased here.
* Filters needed - Penta.com & Alien Skin Xenofex 2 - Constellation.
*Mask of choice - I used 2 (you can just use the one).
*Font of choice. - I used 1 BeanSprout DNA
Lets get started
1. Open a new transparent background 550 x 550
2. This next step is purely as a personal choice. You dont need to use two masks. For the first mask. Fill the canvas with a colour of choice and apply your mask. Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load Mask from Disk - Select your mask and OK. In the layers palette, highlight the main image and then go to the top of your window and select Layers - Merge - Merge Group.
3. Add a new layer. Layers - New Raster Layer - Call this one Secondary Background Layer. Select the mask you want for this one and merge layer as instructed above. Now to apply the filter. Go to Effects - Plugins - Alien Skin Xenofex 2 - Constellation. Apply the settings as shown below. You can have a play around and see what appeals to you.
4. Place your frame and elements on the background. Next select your Rectangle Tool and set your background palette to a colour that will compliment your tube and draw out a shape to the size you desire.
5. Now apply your filter to this Rectangle. I converted the rectangle to raster layer and then applied Penta Dot filter.Effects - Plugins - Filters Unlimited - Penta.com - Colour Dot - with the following settings.
6. Next add your tube and position to your satisfaction. Now add the © Copyright information.
7. Next I then selected a paper from the kit and selected it as the background colour in the Materials Palette. I then selected the Eclipse tool and drew out an oval shape which I softened by adding a bit of a blur to it. Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur and Radius set to 25 - OK.
8. Add your name with font of choice my font was set to 55 - Anti Alias Sharp in the colour #b84a83. Now save your tag as a JPG or PNG file.
You are now finished.
