Private Eyes

Private Eyes
written 12/30/13

Supplies Needed:
Tube of your choice. Preferably a close up. I am using the work of Barbara Jensen. You can get her tubes at

Scrap Kit is called Dreamer Girl by Pimp'd Design. You can get this kit at

Spotlight is also by Pimp'd Design. It is in her light effects CU pack. Get it at the same place as above. If you don't want to use the spotlight there is a light bar in the kit that you can use I just didn't like the look of the lights.

Brushes of your choice. You can get some great brushes at

Font of your choice. I am using P22 Corinthia.

Xero Porcelain and Xero Soft Vignette

Lets Begin:
Open a blank new canvas that is large enough for you to work with.
Open frame 2 and resize to a size you want to work with. This is going to be the base of your tag.
Copy and paste as a new layer and center in the canvas.
Using your rectangle selection tool select the outside edges of your frame.
Open paper 4 and copy.
Make your bottom blank layer active and paste into selection.
Leave your frame selected for now.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Position in the frame.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections select none.
Make sure your tube layer is active and apply Xero Porcelain using the default settings.
Now apply Xero Soft Vignette using the following settings:
Add a drop shadow to your tube and your frame.
Open the light bar element from the kit and resize so it fits nicely from the side of the frame to the top without covering too much of your tube.
I chose to flip horizontal and place so it was on the left side of the frame just because of the tube I am using it worked out better.
Add a drop shadow.
Ok open your spotlight.
Now this part will take some tweaking and resizing and rotating on your part.
You want a spotlight coming out of each of the lights on the bar.
Some are going to overlap and criss cross that is ok.
I placed all but one under the bar because I like that look better and the one that is almost straight down to the right side is the one I placed on top of the bar just because it looked better.
Merge the ones under the bar together and lower the opacity to 70%.
Lower the opacity of the one on top to 70% also.
If you would rather use the one in the kit with the lights already on it you can however I did not like the size of it nor the opacity of the lights it covered my tube too much.
Open ribbon 2 and resize.
Copy and paste as a new layer and move to the left end of the light bar.
Add a drop shadow.
Duplicate and move the duplicate to the right end of the light bar.
Open the star.
Resize so it fits nicely in the bottom right corner.
Adjust add/remove noise and add noise at 85% uniform and monochrome.
Add a drop shadow.
Duplicate and resize 80%.
Move down and to the left.
Duplicate and resize again 80%.
Move down and to the left.
Duplicate once more and resize again 80%.
Move down and to the left.
Add a new raster layer and drag to the bottom.
Apply some brushes of your choice so they are out around the edges of the frame.
Add your name.
Add your copyright information.
