The Spotlight



The Spotlight
Written 7/13/2016
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube or scrap kit to make your tag unique. If you want your tag to look just like mine them 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 completely coincidental.

Supplies Used:
Tube of your choice. Preferably one with a close-up. I am using the work of Andy Cooper. It is called Guitar Gold.  You can purchase this tube at  http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_652_304&products_id=20394
Scrap Kit is called Guitar Gold by Blissful Designs. You can purchase this kit at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20393
Mask of your choice. I am using mask #2 from set 121 by Rachel Designs. You can download it at https://racheldesignsblog.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/mask-set-121/
Font of your choice. I am using Love Rock. You can download it at http://www.fontspace.com/jonathan-s-harris/love-rock

Plugins:
Penta.com Jeans
Xero Greyscaler
Xero Porcelain
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 100 8.50 black

Let's Begin:
Open element 58 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Make your canvas large enough to work with. Copy the star layer and paste as a new image. Re-size by 75%. Using your magic wand select the inside of the star and selections modify and expand by 10. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Flood fill with black. Apply the penta.com jeans filter changing the top value to 75. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and position within the framed area. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Apply the Xero Greyscaler filter using the default settings. Apply the Xero porcelain filter using the default settings. Add a drop shadow to the tube and the frame. Merge all of these layers together. Copy this image and paste it as a new layer on your working tag canvas. Image free rotate to the left 29 degrees. Adjust sharpen. Move to the top left behind the main star. Duplicate and image flip horizontal and move this to the right side. Move the one on the right side down to the lower part of the star.
Make the main middle large star layer active and using your magic wand select the inside of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 10. Layers new raster layer and drag under this main star. Open paper 2 and copy and paste into selection. Leave Selected!!! Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Position within the framed area how you want. Erase any bits hanging out with your eraser tool. Add a drop shadow to both the tube and the main star.
Open paper 7 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag to the bottom. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Now let’s dress the tag up with elements from the kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use other elements to make your tag unique. Placement of the elements is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
