PTU Tut: Music of the City


Music of the City

This tutorial was written by me on September 4 using PSP X4.  All my tutorials assume you have some working knowledge of PSP and/or Animation Shop.

Supplies:

Tube of choice - I'm using the art of Elias Chatzoudis.  You need a license to use his art which you can purchase at his store HERE.

Scrap Kit - I'm using a great kit by Lexi Creationz called "Hey Mr. DJ".  Visit her blog HERE to find out where to purchase this great kit.

Filters/Plugins:  DSB Flux - Bright Noise & Xero Soft Vignette

Font : I'm using Eight Track

To begin open your tube in PSP - minimize for now - open a new 700 x 700 image white background

1.  Copy/paste Frame 1 as new layer - resize - click inside frame with magic want - selections - modify - expand by 6 - selections - invert - choose 2 colors from tube and create a gradient angle 0, repeats 0 , invert unchecked - layers - new raster layer - floodfill with gradient - move below frame layer - c/p your tube as new layer - resize if needed and position - hit delete on keyboard - selections - deselect - drop shadow your tube and frame

2.  Back on your gradient floodfill layer - effects - plugins - Xero Soft Vignette - change repeats to 40 everything else default - apply - on tube layer - change properties to Luminance (L) and opacity to 70

3.  Copy/paste any elements that you would like - resizing as needed and position around your tag - I used the following elements - cityscape, heart 1, notes, pearl strand, ribbon 2 and a sparkle - drop shadow each layer

4.  Copy/paste your tube as new layer - position on tag - resizing if needed - drop shadow

5.  On white background layer - c/p flower of choice -resize if desired - position towards the top left of tag - duplicate - image - mirror - image - flip - drop shadow

6.  Copy/paste wire 2 as new layer - resize if desired - position

7.  Close out white background - crop/resize tag to your preference and add copyright and license info

8.  For the name type out your text using a color from tube foreground/stroke null - using your pick tool stretch the text to your preference (since the tube I used was a half-tube I used the text to cover the cut-off) - apply text and convert to raster layer - selections - select all - float - defloat - layers - new raster layer - selections - modify - expand by 6 - floodfill new raster with another color from tube - move this layer below text layer - effects - dsb flux bright noise to your preference - apply

That's it!  Thank you for trying my tutorial!!
