Luau In The Sun

Luau in the Sun
written 5/21/2015

Supplies Needed:

Tube of your choice. I am using the work of Michael Calandra. I got this tube when he was at MPT. You can now get his work at

Scrap kit of your choice. I am using a freebie bit from the Scrap your heart out blog train. This bit is from Melissaz Creationz. You can get it at

Font of your choice. I am using 2Peas Barefoot Professor. This is a PTU font so feel free to substitute for one of your choice.

Xero Radiance. Optional

Let's Begin:
Open a new blank canvas large enough for you to work with.
You can re-size and crop when we are done.
Set your background color to white and your foreground color turned off.
Using your elipse preset shape tool draw a circle as large as you want in the center of your canvas. This will be the base for your tag.
Before converting to a raster layer go to objects and align and then center in canvas.
Now convert to a raster layer.
Now go to adjust add/remove noise and add noise at 75% with uniform and monochrome checked.
Selections select all float and defloat.
Selections modify and contract by 15.
Layers new raster layer.
Open paper 4 and copy and paste into selection.
Selections select none.
Add a slight drop shadow to both circle layers.
Now open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Position where you would like her.
Add a drop shadow.
Now I am going to list the elements that I used.
The placement of the elements is completely up to you and to be honest you can use any elements you wish. My tutorial is just a guide and you should try to make the tag your own.
The elements I used are :
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
If you want then apply Xero Radiance at the settings of your choice.
Crop and save.
