*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*

Now let's get started!

I had someone ask me to do a tutorial on how I do my 'word' banner tags.
So I made this one.  I also made it into a full set.
You can see the avatar and tag to match down below at the bottom of the tutorial.


1. 
New Image - 750 x 750. 
Using your Impact font 
Size: 120, Stroke: 0, Anti-Alias: smooth, Color: #007cc9
Type out the word 'DANCE'. 
While still vector, stretch the word out by pulling at the center nodules at each side , as well as top and bottom, pulling it in each direction.
I drew arrows in the image below to show you the nodules I mean.



Once you get the word to your desired size
Objects - Align - Center in Canvas
Then right click the layer in your layer palette and choose 'convert to raster layer'.
2. 
Open your texture and paste it  to the left covering the first 3 words.
Duplicate the texture - Image - Mirror
Now it should be covering the whole word. 
Lower these texture layers just above the DANCE word layer.
Open your tube of choice and paste it 3 times over the word.
I chose a closeup on each side, and resized the tube by 70% and pasted in the middle.
Depending on  the tube you are using, do whatever works for you to cover the word.



Once your tubes are exactly where you want them, make your DANCE word layer active.
Selections: Select All
Selections: Float
Selections: Defloat
Selections: Invert
Now, click on the three tubes, one at a time and hit your 'delete' key on each.
And then click on each of the texture layers, and hit your delete key again on those.
Selections: None
Hide all layers, except your 3 tube layers. 
Layers - Merge - Merge Visible.  Change the blend mode to 'Overlay'. 
Unhide the texture layer now.
Again, Layers - Merge - Merge Visible
Now unhide the DANCE word layer. 

3. 
Making your original DANCE word layer active: 
Selections: Select All
Selections: Float
Selections: Defloat
Selections: Expand by 6
Add a new raster layer, and floodfill with the color #007cc9
Lower this layer beneath the original DANCE word layer.
Selections: Expand by 3
Once again add a new raster layer, and floodfill with a gradient of choice. 
I made my own using 2 colors from the tube.
Selections: None
Move this gradient layer beneath the BLUE word layer you just made and lowered.
Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise 
Random: checked, Noise: 40%, Monochrome: checked
Now click on the BLUE word just above the gradient layer. 
Effects - Texture Effects - Blinds 
Width: 2
Color: white
Opacity: 36
Horizontal: checked
I added a dropshadow on each of those layers, as well as the merged tube layer. 
Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow
Glow Width: 3.00 (leave other numbers as is
Click on the 'Color' tab and choose 'thin' in the list.
Click on the blue color that is already in your material palette. Click OK.


4. 
Now, paste your tube onto the canvas, and resize by 70% if using the same one.
Add a dropshadow of choice to it.
Using the 'Bernard' font now, size: 48, same settings as above, type out the word 'Just'.
I also used the same color for it too.
Selections: Select All
Selections: Float
Selections: Defloat
Selections: Expand by 2
Add a new raster layer, and floodfill with the color white.
Lower this layer below the word you just typed so it shows as an outline.
Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise - Random - 28% - Monochrome: checked
Add a dropshadow of choice to it.
Now, add a thin gradient glow (of the same color as the font) again, like above.

5. 
With each of these elements I pasted on, I have added a slight dropshadow to them: 
Element 17 - resize by 70%. Paste at the top of the word, but lowest layer on the layer palette
Element 13 - no resize. Paste to the left coming out from under the top of the word.
Duplicate - Image - Mirror.  Duplicate once more and move this one underneath, center.
Add noise to all 3 of these, same as before.
Element 1 - resize by 80%.  Paste it to the right, coming out of the top of the letter 'E'
Element 12 - resize by 50%.  Paste it at the bottom of the letter 'D'. 
Element 91 - resize by 40%.  Paste it next to the microphone. 
Element 96 - resize by 65%.  Paste it at the bottom to the right of the tube.
Element 91 - resize by 40%.  Paste it to the right of the microphone, on left side of the tag.
Element 11 - resize by 50%.  Paste it in various areas coming out from behind tag.
Element 39 - resize by 35%.  Paste it coming out from behind tag on left and right & behind open areas of the word DANCE.
Element 40 - no resize. Paste it right under the tube layer.  I cut out a couple of stray sparkles.
Element 43 - no resize.  I cut out the one top left , pasted it back on and resized by 60% over DANCE layer.

6. 
Now I used the pixel font to type the words 'Just Dance' across the tag.
I alternated between the colors light blue and white.
And used size 6, making sure that anti-alias is set to 'off'.
That way the font comes out nice and clear when that small.
Using the original DANCE word layer we made back in step 1, 
Selections: Select All
Selections: Float
Selections: Defloat
Selections: Invert
Click on the pixel font layer to make it active, and hit the 'delete' key on your keyboard.
This will remove the excess so it's just within your word.
Lower the opacity to 40.

Now it is time to add your mask. 
I used one from Fire by Flamin, and another by me (both are listed above).
I selected 2 colors from my tag, and used the darker blue for the FBF mask, and teal for mine.
Now add your copyright and your name.
We are FINISHED!
Thank you sooooo much for trying out my tutorial.

This tutorial is for the main tag only,  though.
You can see the other 2 pieces at the bottom of this tutorial.


Materials Needed: 

Tube - Prince Charm by Vi Nina HERE

*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*
Now let's get started!

1. 
New image - 750 x 750. 
Paste your tube of choice onto your canvas.  I used frog-1 of Prince Charm.
If using the same one, resize by 40%, and add a dropshadow.

2. 
Open element 121, resize by 80% and paste to the right side of the tag, behind tube.
Element 101 - resize by 80% and again paste to right, right in front of grass.
Element 54 - paste it down at the bottom of grassy bits, moving it out to overlap a bit.
Element 24 - paste it over top of the grass down low again.  I added a slight dropshadow to it.
Element 14 - resize by 35% and paste down in at the bottom of grassy bits next to the frog.

Here is an image of what I have so far:


When you are happy with what you have, hide the tube layer and merge the rest together.
Duplicate the merged layer and Image - Mirror
Element 2 - paste it right behind the frog, lowering it level with other grassy bits.
I moved it behind some of the lower front grass and flower. 
Now I shifted the frog a bit to the right to see the flower and butterfly behind it.


Element 6 (lilypad) - No resize. 
Paste it and lower it to the lowest layer, coming out from bottom of the tag.
Duplicate - Image- Mirror.

3. 
Element 38 - resize by 50%. (leave it right in the center of the canvas
Effects - Plugins - MuRa's Meister - Copies 
Select 'Encircle' in the list - change the 'Number' to 7.  Don't touch other numbers. Click OK.
Move this behind the 2 frames. 
Element 41 - Image - Flip
(we are flipping it just to prevent the branch from sticking out of the outer edges) 
Effects - Plugins - MuRa's Meister - Copies - same settings
Move it behind all layers.
Element 109 - resize by 25%.  I placed it in 3 places to the right of tag behind frames and flowers.  
Also, added one at the very top.  Just wanted to add some splashes of yellow in there.


4.
Now paste these random elements to your tag from the scrap kit:  
With each of these elements - duplicate them and Image - Mirror to add to the other side.
Element 9, resize by 50%.  paste to the right, coming out from behind the grass, etc
Element 85 - resize by 30%. Move it behind all other layers again coming out from top.
Element 40 - resize by 60%. Move it the very lowest layer so it's coming up from behind grass.

In your material palette, make or add your gradient of choice. 
I am using one of Tonya's, listed above.
Using your square preset shape tool, draw a square and move it beneath a frame.
Right click the layer and 'convert to raster layer'. 
Duplicate it.  Image - Mirror
Duplicate your tube, and place it over the gradient layer under the frame on one side.
Duplicate the layer.  Image  - Mirror
Duplicate the tube layers again and change bottom to Luminance (Legacy) and top to Screen.

5.
These elements I did not duplicate and mirror: 
Element 42 - resize by 60%. Move it to the right of the frog coming out from behind it.
Element 4 - resize by 20%. Add to the front of the tag, next to the frog to the right.
Element 17 - resize by 30%.  Paste it at the top left of the tag over the flowers.
Element 112 - resize by 30%. Paste it on the left hand side of tag, very front, bottom.
Element 13 - resize by 40%.  Paste center and coming up behind the frames. 

6. 
Now, open the supply file I provided above, and grab the circular wordart I made.
Or you can make one of your own. 
I made the wordart so you can use the white back and shadow, or remove them.
Your choice.
Once you've pasted it on, use your preset shape tool to add a small heart between words at the top.
It's just to fill in that space a bit.  I used a different shade of green from the tag.

7. 
Now you can add your masks
I used 2 of my own from my blog, listed above.
Add sparkles if you desire.  I used some from the kit and some of my own. 
Add your copyright and add your name

We are all finished!
Thank you sooooo much for trying out my tutorial.

Tutorial Supplies - HERE 
(my frame, my simple slat template, screws, suz-bcatexture12019, accents

1. 
Open up my frame.  Keep it the size it is. 
Image - Canvas Size - 750 x 750. 
Open up Suz's texture from the supplies and paste it behind the frame.
Trim the excess so you only see it behind the frame.
Adjust - Hue & Saturation - Colorize - Hue: 222, Saturation: 219
Now, paste your tube of choice over top of the frame.
Add a dropshadow to it. 
Vertical: 0, Horizontal: 0, Opacity: 30, Blur: 3.00, Color: Black
Grab the screws from the supplies and paste it over top of the frame.


2. 
Now, using your tube, paste it to the left and to the right over top of the texture.
Hide all layers except the 2 tubes for under the frame, and merge visible.
Unhide all layers, and click on the texture layer to make it active.
Selections: Select All, Selections: Float, Selections: Defloat, Selections: Invert
Click on the newly merged layer to make it active, and hit the delete key on your keyboard.
Selections - None.
Duplicate the merged layer.
In your layer palette, change the blend mode on the bottom layer to Luminance: Legacy
And then, change the blend mode to the top one to Screen.
Hide all layers, except the merged layer, the duplicated merged layer and your texture.
Merge Visible, and then duplicate this merged layer.
On the top one (duplicated one) go to Effects - Plugins - penta.com - Jeans
Use the default settings. 
Lower the opacity to this layer to 42.
Hide your main tube layer, and merge all other layers together.
Move the frame and tube down some on your canvas to make more room at the top.

3.
Open up my simple slab template in supplies. 
Paste it to the canvas and lower it beneath the merged frame layer.
Make sure it is not showing at the bottom of your frame. 



Selections: Select All, Selections: Float, Selections: Defloat 
Add a new raster layer and floodfill it with your gradient of choice.
 Select None.
Now, paste your tube on each of the slabs, removing the extra bits as you go.
Use the same selection method above to do this. 


Hide all layers, except your tubes and gradients over top of your slabs, merge visible.
Duplicate the layer you just merged and change the blend modes
Bottom to Luminance Legacy, Top to Overlay. 
Merge these layers together again, and go to Effects - Plugins - Jeans - same settings

Lower this layer beneath the slab/tube layer. 
Add a dropshadow, same as above
THIS is what you should have now..



4. 
Open SC_simpletemplate02 from the supplies. 
Now, just to be sure of the placement, I copied and pasted the slab layer over to the simple template.
You don't have to, but just easier to figure out tube placement.
Paste your tube over top of the pink rectangle layer 3x, use my tag as a guide. 
You want to see the tube between each of the slabs. 
Once your tubes are where you want them, make the pink rectangle layer active.
Selections: Select All, Selections: Float, Selections: Defloat, Selections: Invert
Now click on each tube layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard.
Selections: None
Use your freehand selection tool to delete any excess of the tube , if necessary.

Effects - Plugins - penta.com - Color Dot - use the default settings
Add a dropshadow to all layers, same as above.
Hide the slab layer, and copy merged onto the main tag canvas.
Your tag should now look like this..


5.
Now, open the devils tails and pitchforks accents, and colorize.  
Adjust - Hue & Saturation - Colorize - same color as before.
Paste the tail under your tube, and the pitchfork to the right. I resized the fork by 60%.
Paste the halo top, center.  
We are all angelic, after all, so the halo is the star of the show, no? LOL
Now paste the lips, starblastaccents (bottom right one), fire (2) and handcuffs.
Open up the accents_layered132 and use the bottom left one. 
I pasted it all around from beneath the tag in various places. (2 top, 2 bottom, 2 sides).
Check my tag for my placement of all of these things.
Using the preset shape tool, draw two hearts at the bottom on each side.
I used pink, and i used the raster deform tool to rotate them a bit.

6. 
With the Czezko font, and using 2 different colors from your tag, 
type out the words 'Naughty or Nice?' right above the frame. 
Add a white border around it, or gradient glow. 
Dropshadow, same as above.
Using Fixed_01 font, size 6, anti-alias: off, type naughty or nice across the top of the frame.
Now add your masks, I used 2 different ones, one in each color of the tag.
Then, lower it to the lowest layer so it comes out from behind the tag.
Add your copyright, and your name!

We are all finished!

Paste the 'Timeless' wordart I made to the tag, and resize by 50%.
Add a thin glow of whatever color to match your tag around the wordart.

Make your pixel words layer active and hit the delete key. It will delete the excess.
Select None.  
Now make sure this layer is underneath your main tube layer.
Lastly, I added a very small black rectangle at the bottom of the tag.
Mainly just to bring out the wordart some, and used the same penta settings as before.
Add a dropshadow, same as before.

7. 
Now the finishing touches!
I added 4 teeny stars
(2 at the top, 2 at the bottom) .
Add your copyright and your name!
For my tag, I used Clarice Script font for the name.
All finished!! Woohoooo!
Thanks so much for following along with my tutorial and giving it a go!
