Xero -Fritillary

Ready?

Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.
I like BIG tags LOL.

Open up element 11 from the kit which is a frame, copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely. Then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 3 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used a yellow then add some noise and move it below your frame layer.

Take your magic wand and select INSIDE the frame modify-expand by 3 add a new layer then open up paper 14 copy and paste it INTO the selection make sure this layer is below the frame layers.

Open up element 30 from the kit which is a curtain, copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it a little and move it inside the frame layers use your eraser tool to erase the overhang. Duplicate this layer then mirror it. Change the blend mode to Luminace L on both layers.

I used a half tube for my tag so I copied and pasted it as a new layer and since I wanted part of it out of the frame and the rest in, I duplicated the tube layer and moved it below the frame layers, then took my eraser tool and erasers on the TOP tube layer what was out at the bottom of the frame. I duplicated both sets and changed the blend mode to each top layer to soft light.

I used element 20 from the kit which is a sun copy and pasted it as a new layer re-sized it and moved it to the top right of the frame below the tube layer.

I used element 5 , 8 and 32  from the kit which are a flower, green leaves and a coconut. I copied them onto my canvas re-sized them and places them near the bottom right of the tag.

Open up two papers I used paper 6 and 12 copy and paste one of them as a new layer and apply your mask then merge group. Do the same with the other paper. Change the blend mode of the top one to Luminance L.

Add your name in your font and color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill it with white or a color of choice then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise uniform checked, 50% noise and monochrome checked. DO NOT deslect yet go to modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the color you used for your name move it below all the name layers and add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 2
V 2
Opacity 45
Blur 4.00
Color Black

On the top layer of the text I also used Xero Fritillary I just played around with the settings until I found something that I liked that wasn't too dark and stuck out lol.

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.

Ready?

Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.
I like BIG tags LOL.

Open up the bunch of crates element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely and move it to the left a little. Now open up Barrell Pyramid element from the kit copy and paste that as a new layer onto your canvas and re-size it move it to the right a little. It doesn't matter if the two overlap we're going to add the tube and such anyway.

Open up the candlebra element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas and re-size it so it fits nicely. Move it to the lower right of your tag.

Open up the pirate flag copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it and love it so its over the barrells and the crates.

Coin splatter 1 from the kit copy and paste that as a new layer re-size and move it below everything else, I erased what showed over the top and left it showing at the bottom.

Open up the treasure boxside copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it and move it so it sits on top of the crates.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange it to your liking. Mine had her hand sitting down so I used the compass from the kit placed it where her hand was and just used my eraser tool and carefully erased the parts of the compass where her hand and fingers are. So it looks like shes holding or leaning on the compass.

Open up paper 11 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas move it below everything on your layer palette. Apply your mask and then merge group. I used my eraser tool and erased the bottom part of the masked layer that was showing but thats up to you.

In your font and color of choice add your name. I used black for mine then went to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color from your tag I used gold DO NOT deslect yet! Go to modify-expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the original font color then move it below all the other layers. I added some noise to my middle layer but thats up to you. Add a drop shadow, my settings are below.

H 0
V 0
Opacity 45
Blur 4.00

Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.

Open up element 9 which should be a frame if you're using the same kit. Copy and paste it as a new layer onto canvas re-size it a little to fit nicely.

Add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice, I used a foreground/background gradient. Then take your eraser tool and erase everything outside of the frame, be careful though because of how the frame is made some corners are a bit tricky lol. Once you've done that copy and paste your tube as a new layer mirrored though and use your eraser tool like you did for the colored layer you added. Then change the blend mode to screen I also colorized it to grey and duplicate it.

On your gradient or colored layer I added some lines with the blinds setting in psp, go to effects-texture effects-blinds and these are the settings I used

Width 2
Opacity 19
Color White
Horizontal checked

Make sure you're on the top layer of your canvas copy and paste your tube as a new layer re-size it a little if you need to and place where you'd like.

I used the speaker (element 43) on one side of the tag of course re-sizing it a little to fit nicely and one of the cupcakes (element 1) resized them a little and fit them next to the speaker.

Open up the purple circle frame (element 35) copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it a little to fit nicely and move it below everything you have on your canvas right now duplicate and mirror it.

Open up paper 13 and 14 copy and paste either or on the canvas as a new layer below the circle frame and apply your mask, merge group. Change the blend mode of the circle frame on that side to Limance L. Repeat these steps for the other side with the different paper.

Add your name in your font and color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill it with white or a color of choice then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise uniform checked, 50% noise and monochrome checked. DO NOT deslect yet go to modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the color you used for your name move it below all the name layers and add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 0
V 0
Opacity 45
Blur 4.00
Color Black
