Rock Roll 'n Stuff

Rock Roll ‘n Stuff

This tut was written by me, Em Jay, on 6-4-10 with all rights reserved.  Please do not copy and paste it in any group, any website, or call it your own. You can link to it using a text link to my blog.

This tut is written using a PTU kit designed by Brandies Eye Candies called 501 Grunge which can be purchased here at Wilma4Ever Store.   It was written using PSPX, but is adaptable to any version and is for people with a good working knowledge of PSP.

No outside filters needed.

Open a new image 550 by 550. Resize EJ_PP12 to 58% and c/p it as a new layer, duplicate.  Highlight bottom paper layer, Effects/Texture Effects/Mosaic-Antique with these settings Grid Settings 52, symmetric is checked, Mosaic Settings 31, 5, 33. Highlight the top paper layer, Effects/Texture Effects/Texture with these settings  Canvas course, size 100, Image 0,2,0,0, Color white, 315, 30, 50. Merge down.

Resize EJ_splatter to 60%, c/p as a new layer; position/rotate/resize as needed with the deform tool, duplicate and position/rotate/resize to cover a bit more of the paper area, merge down, sharpen once.

Resize EJ_frame7 to 68%, duplicate. Highlight top frame layer and add a drop shadow with these settings- Vertical/horizontal 1, Opacity 100, Blur 1.0, pick a very light color from your tube for the color. Repeat drop shadow changing Vertical/horizontal to -1. Highlight the bottom frame layer, Effects/Texture Effects/Mosaic-Antique.  Use the same settings as above except change the grid settings to 34. Now use your deform tool to resize this layer just a bit so that it fits inside of the top frame. Merge the top frame layer down.

Open EJ_skull5 and resize to 40%. C/P as a new layer, move it to the top left of the tag and rotate it to the left a bit using the deform tool. Add drop shadow. Open EJ_frame9 and resize to 60%, move it so that it circles skull 5. Add a drop shadow. Open EJ_bow5 and resize to 60%, c/p as a new layer and move and rotate using the deform tool on the lower left of the tag, add a drop shadow.

Add your focus tube on a new layer and add a drop shadow.  I used a cute goth rocker tube I have permission to use which is ©Ismael Alvarez, www.ismaelalvarez.com. Please do not use his artwork unless you have permission to do so.  You can always use a tube of your own choosing.

Open EJ_musicnote3 and EJ_star2. Resize both to 60%. C/P the note as a new layer, duplicate and merge down, add a drop shadow.  Do the same with the start.  Now you can duplicate each of these elements as many times as you would like and just arrange them here and there on your tag.  Use your deform tool to resize further and rotate if needed. 

It’s time to add your text.  I used a font called Cocktail with a very light color as my foreground color for the outline with stroke set to 1. The background was made using a gradient with two colors from my image. Once you have your text how you like it, add a drop shadow.  Add your watermark and copyright information, export as a jpeg and you’re done!

I hoped you enjoyed this tut!
