New Tutorial and Tag

New Tutorial

 

Hi all and thanks for visiting...

I want to thank all those who tried my latest tutorial and for all the lovely comments...

Well I got to creating again today and basically created a very simple background with frame...

No special skills needed here just some creativity and imagination..

I did use one plugin called brush strokes which you can get here

and you will need two tubes one main one and one secondary for the background...

and a gold pattern

I'll leave it for you to choose what you would like to use today

 

For the tag I have used the beautiful art work of ©Hellonleg

Open a new 500x500 transparent image


Choose a light and dark colour from the main tube


Flood fill your new image with the Light colour you have chosen


Open your secondary image and duplicate it and close the original


I used a daisy image


On this image using your plug-in brush strokes and crosshatch use the following settings


Stroke length 18, sharpness 9, strength 1


Copy and paste as new layer to your filled image and move to the right


Duplicate your layer and mirror then merge new layer down


Effects>Image effects>seamless tile use default setting


Change blend mode to soft light


Duplicate layer and image>flip and merge layer down


Use your plug-in again with the same settings and change opacity to 50%


Now with rectangle selection tool select a small section of your background and copy and paste as new image


With this new image create a seamless tile with the default settings and then just minimize for now


Open main image and copy and paste as new layer to your background image and resize as necessary


Add a drop shadow


Now for the borders

Add a bevel with the following settings


Bevel 2, width 3, smoothness 40, depth 5, ambience 0, shininess 20, colour white, angle 315, intensity 40, elevation 30

Use magic wand and select border and flood fill with gold pattern


Add border 5 and fill with light colour, select border with magic wand and use same bevel as before


Add borders again 2 and fill with gold pattern


Add borders again 5 fill with dark colour and add inner bevel again

Add borders again 5 dark colour add inner bevel


Add borders again 2 fill with gold pattern
