Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.
I like my tags BIG LOL.

Open up your kit an in the elements folder grab element 24 which should be a circle of leaves. Copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 and add a new layer. Go to your paper folder and pick paper 14 from the kit then paste it into the selection then select none move this layer below the circle frame.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer mine is only a half tube so what I did was arranged it where I wanted then duplicated it and moved the duplicate below the frame. Then took my eraser tool and erased what I wanted on the top layer to make it look like shes coming out of the frame.  Duplicate the top tube layer change the blend mode to soft light and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5. Do the same for the tube layer under the frame then add a drop shadow to the VERY bottom tube layer I used H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Next open up elements 44, 49, 58 and 59. Arrange the flowers element 44 near the bottom left of the tag, arrange the star element 49 near the middle right of the tag, arrange the birds elements 58 and 59 on the bottom left and right of the tag.

Using element 52 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below the frame layer.

Open up paper 13 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below the frame and the wire you just added. Then apply your mask and merge group and duplicate.

Now in your font and color of choice making sure you at the very top layer on your palette add your name then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise- random selected, monochrome selected, noise percent at 36. Then add a gradient glow my settings shown in the screen-shot below then add the same drop shadow as earlier and change the blend mode to hard light.




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 frame 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely. Now create a foreground/background gradient using two colors from your tag add a new layer and flood fill it with your gradient. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Move this layer below the frame layer and deslect.

Now take your tube copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it somewhere in the circle duplicate it and arrange it in another spot keep doing this until the circle is covered merge them together JUST them though not everything else. Then take your magic wand and click inside the frame again then go to selections-invert then go to your tubes layer and hit delete. Grey scale this layer and change the blend mode to screen duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light.

Open up the cityscape element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below the frame layer re-size it if you need to and take your eraser tool and erase what might be overhanging.

Open up paper 6 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below your frame then take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Change the blend mode to soft light.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer mine is only a half tube so what I did was duplicate it and then move that layer below the frame then used my eraser tool on the top tube layer to delete what was showing through. Duplicate the top tube layer then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5 and change the blend mode to soft light. Repeat these steps for the tube layer below the frame. Then on the very bottom tube layer add a drop shadow of H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Open up the lips element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and place it where you like.

Open up the heart element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely I placed it near the top right of the tag.

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 random checked, 36% 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. I used the same one we did earlier.

Open up paper 3 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below the frame and everything else then apply your mask and merge group. Arrange it to your liking.

Open up the wire element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it if you need the and move it below the mask layer.

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.

Now from the kit open up frame 2 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it if you need to. Now take your magic wand and click inside the frame open up paper 5 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete move this layer below the frame layer. Now if you're using a photo you're going to do the same thing then you can select none.

Still on your frame layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 3 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise- random checked as well as monochrome and noise at 36%. Move this layer below the frame layer then add a drop shadow of H 0 V 0 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Take the fence element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little to fit nicely and place it above the glitter frame we just did but under the original frame layer. Duplicate and mirror if you re-sized it quite small, we want it to fit along the whole bottom of the frame.

Take the wooden sign element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer and re-size it to fit nicely move it to the left of your tag under the fence you just added. Now in a font of choice write some words on the parts of the sign that point in different directions.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer re-size it to your liking and arrange it where you want it. Duplicate it then go adjust-blur-gaussian blur at 5 and change the blend mode to soft light. Add a drop shadow to your bottom tube layer I used Lokas Software 3D shadow. Settings shown in the screen-shot below.




Take the Harvest word-art from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little to fit nicely and move it at the bottom of your tag near the center and add a drop shadow same one we used earlier for the glitter frame.

I used the acorn cluster and watering can combo elements from the kit on each side of the word-art re-size them so they fit there nicely and add the same drop shadow as earlier.

Now in your font and color of choice add your name then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise- random checked as well as monochrome and noise at 36% then add a gradient glow settings shown in the screen-shot below. Add a drop shadow of H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

We're going to work on the template from the bottom upwards.

Close off the original flower layer. Now on your new flower layer go to selections-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used white. Move this layer below the flower layer and add some noise settings of your choice and add a drop shadow I used H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Arrange it to your liking then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Change the blend mode to Luminace L. Repeat this step for the other dark grey circle layer.

Now we're on the black circle layer. Open up the silver clock element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it so its peeking out from behind the white circle layer a bit. If it doesn't show all the way around duplicate and mirror. Use your erase tool to erase what you don't want seen on both layers. Then open up the moon element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below the clocks you just added re-size it so it fits nicely and change the blend mode to Luminance L. Duplicate and mirror if it doesn't cover the circle fully.
