Let's Grind



Let's Grind
written 4/4/2016

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:

Tag by Andy Cooper. She is called Zebra Skate. You can purchase her at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_304&products_id=18261

Penta Color Dot

Drop shadow used throughout:

Let's Begin:
Open element 8 and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame.
Selections modify and expand by 3.
Open paper 2 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag under the frame.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections invert again.
Open the close up of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Position within the framed area.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections select none.
Change the properties of this layer to luminance legacy.
Duplicate the tube layer.
On the bottom layer apply penta color dot and change the value to 60.
On the top layer adjust blur gaussian blur at 8.00
Lower the opacity of this layer to 60.
Using the font of your choice add the text “Let's Grind” in the framed area using white.
Lower the opacity of this layer to 40.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Merge these layers together.
Open element 17 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag under the framed image.
Image re-size by 110%
Add a drop shadow.
Open your full sized tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size as needed until she is just bigger than the framed image.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 20 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size.
Duplicate several times and place all around the frame.
Repeat with element 21.
Add a drop shadow to all of these.
Now lets add some elements from the kit.
I will list the elements I used and the placement is completely up to you.
If you want your tag to look like mine then use my tag for reference on the placement.
Feel free to use other elements that I did not use. This will make your tag unique.
