Changing Sands




*Click the tag for full view*


This tutorial was written by Brunette on November 11th 2014.
 Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
Do not copy and paste my tutorials or claim as your own you may link to them for group challenges.

What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a stunning tube by Robert Alvarado.
I purchased this tube when he was selling at PTE.
As far as I know he no longer sells his art for tubes or sig tags.



A gorgeous PTU kit by Jackie's Jewels called Changing Sands.
Which you can find out where to purchase this kit HERE.
Be sure to check out all her other awesome kits!

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

Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow
Loka's Software - 3D Shadow

Mask of choice
Mine is from Gem's Taggin' Scraps.
Any of her lovely masks will do.
You can find them HERE.


Open up a 600x600 blank canvas.

Alright let's get started!

Open up frame 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size if you feel you need to. Now grab your magic wand and click inside the frame then to go selections-expand and expand by at least 3. Open up a paper of choice I used paper 11. Add a new layer copy and paste your paper INTO the selection then select none and move the paper layer below the frame. Add a drop shadow of choice with Loka's Software play around with your settings.

Back on the frame layer again with your magic wand click inside the frame layer again now open up your tube if it has a close up use that. Copy and paste it as a new layer arrange to your liking then to go selections-invert and hit delete then select none move this layer below the frame but above the paper. Duplicate and mirror your tube if you'd like. Lower the opacity a bit to your liking and change the blend mode to screen.

I used the pumpkin element from the kit re-sized and arranged it to my liking duplicated it and mirrored it. Along with the books and cup with shells. Arrange them near the bottom of your tag and add the same drop shadow you did to the frame.

Open up your tube copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it so its below the pumpkins layer. Duplicate your tube layer then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur of 3 then change the blend mode to soft light. Add the same drop shadow to the bottom layer tube.

Open up the first branch element copy and paste it as a new layer re-size to your liking. Arrange it below the tube layer and to either side then duplicate and mirror it. Add the same drop shadow to wach branch layer.

Open up the fence element copy and paste it as a new layer re-sizing it so it sort of fits in the frame again below the tube layer. Arrange to your liking and add your drop shadow.

Open up element 74 since I am not sure what to call them LOL. Copy and paste as a new layer re-size to your liking and move to the side of your tag under your branch layer. Duplicate and mirror arrange it on the other side of your tag.

Open up the second flying leaves element copy and paste as a new layer re-size if you need to and have this as your top layer over your tube, arrange it to your liking.

I also added the flying bird re-size it so it fits nicely arrange to your liking and add your drop shadow.

Open a paper of choice I used paper 8 copy and paste it as a new layer move it to the bottom  of all your elements and tubes. Apply your mask then merge group. Arrange to your liking then I added a tiny bit of noise. You can do this by going to adjust-add/remove noise and add what you'd like.

Finally add your name in a color and font of choice apply the same noise settings you used. Then apply your gradient glow, my settings shown in the screen-shot below. Duplicate your text layer and change the blend mode to hard light then merge down and add your drop shadow.





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.
