What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using the an awesome tube by Ismael Rac which you can purchase at his store HERE. This tube is however a bonus tube all the info is on the store site if you'd like this tube.  I am also using the kit that comes with the HD Plus pack for this particular bonus tube.

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Dartangnon-ITC for the name.

Ready?

Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas 650x200 we're going to make a forum set.

Go to layers and add a new layer flood fill this layer with a background/foreground colors from your tube.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange it to your liking on either end of the canvas duplicate it and mirror it so its on the other side as well. You can re-size it if you want and do this till the canvas is full or just leave your tube as is we're going to copy it again later in the middle anyhow so its up to you. Merge them together and change the blend mode to Luminance L.

Open up paper 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking I moved it over to get some white where I wanted since its a stripped paper then duplicated and mirrored it. Change the blend mode of these layers to soft light. I didn't merge these layers because it effects the blend mode I used.

Now I used elements 9 and 10 from the kit they're suckers re-sized them placed them in the middle on each side with a rotation to the left or right depending which you want where of 25%.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer re-size it a little if you need or want to then arrange it in the middle of your canvas. Duplicate it then go to adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur set to 3 and change the blend mode to soft light.

Now we're going to do the borders. Go to the very bottom layer of your canvas it should be blank click it then  go to selections-modify-contract by 4 then invert add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice then add some noise if you like. Arrange this layer so its at the top of your layers. Repeat these steps but change the number you contract by to 2.

In your font of choice add your name I used the color black but that is up to you and the colors in your tag. Then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill this in a color of choice DO NOT DESELECT YET go to modify-expand by 2 again then add another new layer flood fill that layer in a different color I used black. Move the first layer you flood filled below the text and the second one you flood filled below that. I hope that makes sense LOL. I also added some noise to the first flood filled layer but that is up to you.

Now for the avatar all I did was open up a new canvas 150x150 closed off the border layers and copyright layers on my banner then copy merged  and pasted it as a new layer on the 150x150 canvas. Arrange it to your liking even re-size it a little if you want. Then again go to the bottom layer then go to selections-modify-contract by 4 then invert add a new layer and flood fill with the same color as you did on the banner. Arrange this layer so its at the top of your layers. Repeat these steps but change the number you contract by to 2.

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

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