postheadericon ♥New Tag N Tut - I'm Not Broken♥



TUBE OF CHOICE:  I am using the beautiful artwork of Zindy S. D. Neilsen  You must have a license to use this work.  To purchase her tubes and/or obtain a license, visit her store here...Zindy Zone Shop

SCRAP KIT OF CHOICE:  I am using a gorgeous kit called I'm Not Broken by Tonya.  You can check out her site here...Broken Sky Dezine & you may purchase her kits at multiple stores.  There are quite a few, so instead of posting them  here, just check out her blog on the left hand side & you will find a list of stores.

EFFECTS OF CHOICE: I am using the effects Xero-->Radiance.  If you do not have this, you can get it...HERE  Go down to where it says Freeware Plug-Ins 2009, next to that it says download, with that you can download the entire program or you can go below & click on each individual effect you want. I suggest the full program, it has some great effects.  I also used Eye Candy 4000-->Gradient Glow, which you can Google for free download if you don't have it.

FONT OF CHOICE: I am using a beautiful font called Aquarelle, if you do not have it you can get it here... FONTS101 & I used Ariel for the copyright. You should have that in your PSP already.


Open a new raster image, 700 X 700

Open BSD21, the square frame, &  resize 80%, copy & paste onto new image.

Open Paper BSD5 & resize 80%.  Copy & paste onto tag under frame layer.  The paper should line up perfectly with the frame.  Make sure your frame is the active layer & click inside with your magic wand.  Go to image-->modify-->expand & expand by 5.  Go to selections-->invert.  Make sure your paper is the active layer in the layer palette, if not, click on it.  Hit delete on your keyboard.  Go to selections-->select none.

Open BSD51, stars, & paste on top of paper layer but under frame.  I moved to the left side, right click on your mouse w3ith the pointer above the star layer i your layers palette & click duplicate.  Go to image-->mirror.
Adjust if needed.

Open BSD56, the gray ribbon, & resize 80%.  Copy & paste on top of frame layer.  Position in left bottom corner.  Duplicate, go to image-->mirror, then image-->flip.  Position in top right hand corner.  On the bottom ribbon I erased a part of the end of the ribbon to meet flush against the edge of the frame.  See my tag for reference if needed.  I did this because the bottom ribbon will be above the tube & the top will be under.

Open your tube of choice.  I added a radiance effect.
Go to effects-->plug-ins-->xero-->radiance & click ok after you add these settings...

Now, Copy & paste onto your tag.  If you need to, click on your tube in the layers palette & drag it so it is above the top ribbon & below the bottom ribbon.  You may need to move the ribbon layers around a bit to do this.

Open BSD60, the skull with wings, Resize 30%, Copy & paste onto tag on top layer & place in the bottom center of the frame.  It should be above the tube & ribbon layers.

Now open the last element, BSD6 & Resize 20%.  Copy & paste onto tag. I placed in the curve of one of the ribbons, duplicate & place on the other ribbon.

Add any other elements you like.  I kept this simple I know, but I tried adding some of the colored elements to it, but just didn't like it. I like it better with the black & white look.

If you are happy with it, you can add your name & copyright info.  Make sure this is legible & clear. You may add any drop shadow to any layers you like & merge layers together if that is something you do.

That is it.  I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.  Thanks so much for checking it out.
