Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

A kit of choice I am using a gorgeous Free kit by Lindalous Scrap Spot called Asian Drama. You can get this kit here.

This is what I believe to be a full size kit or at least it is on the larger side, so you will need to re-size the elements you use as well as the papers and frames quite a bit.

Ready?
 
Let's get started!


Open up a new canvas 700x700 we can always crop/re-size later.
Open up the big sqaure frame copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely. Open up a paper of choice from the kit I used paper 15 from the kit and just re-sized it so it fit nicely behind the frame.

Next I took element 15 from the kit copy and paste it onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely on your frame then go to image-mirror and move it so its on the right side of the frame.
I took element 43 from the kit copied and pasted it onto the canvas re-sized it a bit and moved it to the left top corner of the frame.

Take elements 31 & 32 copy and paste them as new layer re-size them so they fit nicely in the lower left corner of the frame. I rotated one a little to make it look like it was sort of laying down but thats up to you.

Open up another paper from the kit I used paper 9 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer at the very bottom of your layer palette. Re-size it so it fits nicely then add your mask then go to layers-merge-merge group duplicate this layer and go to image-mirror then image-flip and arrange these layers to your liking. I also went to adjust-blur-gaussian blur settings at 20.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer add a drop shadow settings shown in the screen-shot below.
 

I added the words 'The sun will rise again' on the sides of my tag in Bank Gothic rotated the ones I needed to so they fit on the frame then added a gradient glow and a drop shadow my settings shown in the screen-shots below.
 
 

Now add your name in a font of choice along with a drop shadow same settings as in the screen-shot above.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.

Open up the template shift+D that duplicates the image and close out the original, I also closed off layer 1 on the temp.

On the oval layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice select none then I added Xero Fritillary settings shown in the screen-shot below. Close off the original oval layer.
 
 

On the rectangle layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice select none. Close off the original rectangle layer.
On the square layer selections-select all-float-defloat open up a paper of choice I used paper 9 from the kit and re-sized it a bit then go to selections-invert and hit delete select none and close off the original square layer.

On the circle layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice I used the same color as the oval but thats up do you. Select none and close off the original circle layer.

On the squares layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer flood fill both squares DO NOT deselect yet copy and paste your tube or closeup if your tube has one then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Duplicate the tube go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur- 3 change the blend mode to soft light and the original layer to Luminance L.  Add xero radiance to the top tube layers. Settings shown in the screen-shot below. Select none and close off the original squares layer.
 
 

I closed of Star 2 and 3 but that is up to you.

On the wordart background layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice and add some noise and a drop shadow.

Copy and paste your main tube I moved mine below the words and off to the left so you could still read the words. Duplicate and change the blend mode of this layer to soft light.

I used element 1 from the kit and placed them where the stars were on the template. I added element 25 move it below ALL layers of the template re-size it so it fits nicely. I duplicated it and mirrored and arranged them both so they sort of stuck out on the sides, top and bottom of the background.  I did the same thing with element 39 just I didn't re-size it.

Now we're going to add your name in a font of choice and add a gradient glow same as the screen shot above and a drop shadow shown in the screen shot below.
