postheadericon Stalker Alert Tut

 
Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and
have fun giving it your own spin. 

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. 

Needed Supplies & Filters : 

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Ismael Rac which you must have a license to use. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc. but they are now closed. You can now find Ismael's artwork licensed through his own store. Pls do not use his work without purchasing through here.

 Template of Choice .. I have used a great template from Sharon at Dolly's Tag World (Template 2), which can be downloaded on her blog here. Pls visit her blog for more great templates.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_84 which can be downloaded from weescotslass here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used some wonderful art by DragonflyMaiden from the Rac Stalker forum. She has allowed me to include it with this tut and you can download it here. Please visit the forum here for more of great word art.

Filters required ... Xenofex (Constellation), Xero (Fritillary) & Eye Candy (Gradient Glow)

Font of Choice .. I am using Futurist Fixed Width 

Let's get started ! 

Open your mask & template in PSP, duplicate and close original.

Delete copyright layers and image/canvas size 650x650. Floodfill background layer with white.

Choose a darker color from your tube for your background and a lighter color for your foreground. I have used #1b3c8a & #6bb6de

New raster layer just above your background layer. Floodfill with your foreground color.

New mask layer from image, WSL_84, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group.

New raster layer and floodfill with your background color.

New mask layer from image, WSL_84, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Resize 90% and lower opacity of this layer 75%.

Effects/Xenofex/Constellation with the following settings:


Select Rectangle 1 layer, Select All, Float, Defloat, New Raster Layer, floodfill with a gradient from your 2 selected colors .. i have used these settings:


Select none and delete original layer.

Effects/Xero Fritillary with the following settings 7/160/30/45.

Select Rectangle Border 1 layer, Select All, Float, Defloat, New Raster Layer, floodfill with your darker color. Select none. Adjust/add remove noise/add noise with settings uniform/15%/monochrome checked. Add drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Delete original layer.

Repeat the same steps for Rectangle 2 and Rectangle Border 2 layers.

Select Starburst layer, Select All, Float, Defloat, New Raster Layer, floodfill with your darker color, copy and paste your selected close up tube, position within your star, selections/invert, delete. Select none. Change blend mode to luminance and delete your original layer.

Select Starburst Border layer, Select All, Float, Defloat, New Raster Layer, floodfill with your darker color. Select none. Adjust/add remove noise/add noise with settings uniform/15%/monochrome checked. Add drop shadow.

Merge down your 3 layers for your starburst (border, tube, background).

Copy and paste your full size tube. Resize as necessary and reposition your starburst layer if needed.

Copy and paste your word art. Add a gradient glow with settings Width 3, Fat, color #6bb6de and drop shadow.

X out white background, merge visible.
Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).

Add copyright. Add your name .. I used Futurist Fixed Width Size color black and added the same gradient glow as previous and dark shadow.

Save and you are done. 

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.

I'd love to see what you came up with.
