Oh Sooooo Sweet

Welcome back to my Home Away From Home.

I was asked from a friend when will I make another tut.  Well here it is and it was as fun to make as my first one.  You can stop tapping your foot.  LOL Wouldn't want you to put a hole in your floor.
Any ways here you go Tutorial number 2.  I titled it Oh Sooooo Sweet because of the word art. 
Any similarities to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

MY First Tut Remember Our Fallen Soldiers

Welcome to my Home away from Home.

Before I get started I would like to thank my daughter for designing my blog background. I love, love, love, did I say love it.  I couldn't have done it without her.  I think she is the best daughter a mom can have and I love her very much.

Now to the business at hand......
This is my first ever tut.  Hope you all enjoy it.  Any similarities to other tutorials are purely coincidental.

Remember Our Fallen Soldiers

For the banner

Open a new raster layer 650x250

open your tube of choice

I used the gorgeous work of Elizabeth Austin .  She is a PTU artist you can get her work along with a license if you don't have one Here
The font i used is AK Applique white it is ftu you can get it here

Copy  your tube and paste it as a new raster layer
Resize if needed and place on left side of Banner
Rename layer to Tube layer 1
Duplicate the tube once you have it placed. 
 Rename second layer to tube layer2

High light tube layer 1
Use Effects: Andrews filters  19 beads and all with these settings--
x1__________ 9
y1__________ 0
x2__________ 0
3d effects drop shadow with these settings---
opacity ____100
color     black

Highlight tube layer 2

use effects:  unplugged x v.2 by VanDerLee Distortion
with these settings---
 Deviation 10
Repeat edges
transparency 0
3d effects drop shadow with these settings---
opacity ____100
color     black

Open new raster layer
Rename to background 1

Flood fill with a light color from your tube
resize 70%
select all
You should see what looks like marching ants around the color of your background 1.  leave those for now as we are now going to add an effect called Mura's meister cloud with these settings---
effect _____100
grain_______ 0
contrast____ 0
bias _______ -80
blur________ 0
contour_____ 0
all boxes checked
use the light and dark colors from your tag along with white
selections none
now your marching ants will be gone
edge effects --enhance

open new raster layer
rename layer to background 2
flood fill with a dark color to match your tube
resize background 2 -- 72%
add noise with these settings---
Gaussian checked       50%
monochrome checked
edge effects --enhance

then add
3d effects drop shadow with these settings---
opacity ____100

open a new raster layer
rename stars

with your star preset shape
make a row  top to bottom with 4 stars -using both the dark and light  colors
position star layer to the right side of the background layers

duplicate the star layer
resize by 102%

add noise with these settings---
Gaussian checked       50%
  monochrome checked

now for the text(ak applique white)
type out the words like this:

you will now have 2 new layers
rename these layers

remember our 
fallen soldiers 
merge these 2 layers together by highlighting the remember our layer and merge down
then add a
3d effects drop shadow with these settings---
opacity ____100
color     black
use your pick butten to adjust your text layer to position the text next to the tube layer 1 and background 1

Now the last but not least and the most important part.
make sure you have all copyright info of the tube you used.  Now if it is a PTU tube don't forget your license number. last thing is to add that you were the one that made the tag for an example--- tagged by Pat'11.

Merge all layers visible
 save as a png file

now for the avatar

undo the merge
and merge all layers except the copyright info
make sure your ratio is locked and resize it to 250 (with the ratio locked it will automatically resize the x ___ part)
then add all the copyright info and your licence and your tagged by where it is visible.

then merge those layers visible
also save as a png file.

Hope you find this easy to understand. 
I would love to see your results.  You can send your results or questions you may have to my email: .
 As I said at the beginning this was my first one and I plan to add more as I have the time.
