You will Need:
You will need Paint Shop Pro to create this tag or Photoshop. I used PSP XI but any version will work.
You will need a tube of choice. I used the gorgeous artwork from Sue Rundle-Hughes to create this forum set. You will need to purchase her images from PSP Tube Stop and you will need a license to use them in your tag creations.
You don't need a scrap kit for this tutorial, I just grabbed some elements I had on my PC to add to the tag. If you would like to use a kit, I have a FTU kit here on my blog which is called Spring Delight and can be found HERE.
Filters used: - Foto Frames AAA Frames & Filters Unlimited - Toadies - Weaver.
Font used was Baroque Script. You can get it HERE.
Open a new canvas 600 x 200 and flood fill with a colour that compliments your tube.
Open your tube and copy and paste to your canvas. Duplicate your tube layer and hide the top layer.
Select your bottom tube layer and go to your Filters Unlimited - Toadies - Weaver. Default settings.
If your background doesn't meet the edges, duplicate this layer and position so that the background is covered. Merge these two layers together and duplicate once again.
Select the bottom layer and change the Blend Mode to Darken. Now select the top layer and change the blend mode to soften. Hide all other layers and then merge visible.
Unhide the tube layer and apply a drop shadow of choice. I applied the following settings.
Position the tube where you like and apply your elements to your tag.
Add your © information in a clear font. I used Ambitsek. You can download it HERE.
Add your name to your tag and apply whatever filter you choose to it, I applied a drop shadow as applied to the tube.
Move your © Layer so that it is visible on your tag. You can hide this layer till we have applied the Foto Frame filter to your tag.
Merge all visible layers and then go to Effects - Plugins - AAA Frames. Using the following settings. As shown in the image below.
Unhide your Copyright layer and position where you can see it clearly.
Now save your tube as a JPG.
You are now finished.
Thank you for trying my tutorial.
