Tutorial by Aevals Art
**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version. This tutorial is my own creation. Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials). If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **
Tube – “Roxette” by English Rose Designs. You can purchase the tube exclusively at her store English Rose Designs.
Kit- “Bloom” by Amy Marie. Available at her store Amy Marie’s Kits.
DS – Drop Shadow
Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5
Open up the PSD file for the template. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add Frame 21 and resize to the fit the canvas.
Add Paper 5 in a layer below the frame. Resize it so that the open part in the center of the frame has paper completely behind it.
Between the paper and frame layers add the following elements to decorate the background. Resize, rotate, and add DS as you see fit to suit your tastes:
Switch to the Poser psd canvas. Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to draw a box around the head and shoulders of the poser in the psd file. Copy (Ctrl + C) the selection and return to your working canvas.
On your working canvas paste (Ctrl + V) the copied selection. Resize to fit the canvas and position as though she is peeking through the frame.
Add your poser to the canvas. Resize her so she fits on the right side of the canvas. Add DS.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful spring elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them so fit the proportions of your tag. Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety. In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz. In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used.
Here are all the elements I used from the bottom layers up.
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Save as PNG and go share with all your friends!
