Large tube of choice or close up
- I'm using a tube by Jennifer Janesko. She has a ton of face tubes that are perfect for this type of tag. You can purchase her tubes at CDO here.
Moonbeams and Spiderwebs Timeline Masks 28 & 29 here
AAA Frames - Foto Frame
2 fonts of choice (one fat - one plain or script) - I used Back to Black Demo and Ellie Mae Demo
Please note. If you are using different textures or tubes, you may have to change the blend modes to suit your tube/textures.
1. Open a new canvas 600 x 250.
2. Copy/Paste texture 60 as a new layer, and arrange it where you like. I just left mine where it was.
3. Add a new raster layer. Selections>Select All.
4. Copy/Paste texture 20 into selection. Deselect.
5. Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image. MB and SW Timeline Mask 29. Source Luminance and Invert checked
6. Layers>Merge Group
7. Copy/Paste Texture 12 as a new layer.
8. I wanted the color red to pop, so I colorized it. Adjust>Hue and Saturation?Colorize Hue: 0 Saturation: 141
9. Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image. MB and SW Timeline Mask 28. Source Luminance and Invert checked
10. Layers>Merge Group
11. Add tube/close up and a new layer. Resize as necessary and position on the left side of your tag.
12. Double click on they layer in your layer palette and change the blend mode to overlay.
13. Duplicate your tube layer.
14. On the duplicate. Adjust>Blur>Gaussian Blur - 3
15. Change the blend mode on this layer to Soft Light.
16. Copy/Paste Texture 17 as a new layer.
17. Effects>Texture Effects>Weave with the following settings.
18. Change the blend mode to Overlay and the Opacity to 67.
19. Crop your image to 600 x 250. This step is important as the frame will not work properly if you skip it.
20. You can merge visible on your layers and apply the filter once, or if you're crazy like me, you can leave everything in layers and apply the filter to every layer. I prefer to leave mine in layers, so I can manipulate things or change them if necessary.
21. Apply AAA Frames Foto Frame with the following settings. Remember if you left yours in layers like I did, you will need to apply this to each layer in your palette.
22. Change your text color to Background>White Foreground>Color of choice (I used a dark red) and stroke to 1.
23. Type out your word and apply a drop shadow of V&H - 2 O - 50 B-5
24. Change the blend mode to Overlay.
25. Duplicate and change the blend mode to Multiply and the Opacity to 58.
26. Add your copyrights.
27. Add your names using your thin font with the foreground set to null and the background white.
28. Apply the same drop shadow you used for your "fat" word. Duplicate the drop shadow twice.
29. Save your tag as JPEG or PNG, and you are done.
Here are a couple more examples.
