American Beauty

If you like my tags and tuts, please follow my blog. This tutorial was written on June 26, 2013. Any similarity to any other tut is purely coincidental. I use PSP X5, but you should be able to do this in any version.




You Will Need:
Tube of choice. I used Cherry Bomb from Keith Garvey. You must have a license to use his work. You can find it here.
PTU kit Groovy America from Kizzed by Kelz . You can pick it up here.
Mask: Mask 452 by Vix
Animation Shop and animations #472, #477, #483, and #484  from Scrappy Bit of Fun. (Optional. You only need these if you want to animate it)
Terms to Know:
C&P-Copy and paste
SAFDI-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat>Invert
SAFD-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat
DS-Drop Shadow (The settings I used for all my DS layers were: -3, -3, 50, 5, black)
Crop to Selection- Ctrl+a on the layer below the one you just pasted a paper (or object) on. Back to the paper (or object) and Shift+r.
Center in Canvas- Objects>Align>Center in Canvas
Apply Mask- Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image and choose your mask.
Add Noise- Image>Add/Remove Noise>Add Noise (The settings I used were Gaussian, 50%, Monochrome)
Promote Background Layer- right-click on the layer and select “Promote Background Layer”
It helps to rename each layer what they are, rather than leaving them as Raster 1, etc. This will help you keep up with where you need to place things.

©  Open Paper13, promote background layer. Open and apply mask. Resize the mask 106% and Center in Canvas. Merge Group.
©  Open Stars Circle 2. C&P, place in the upper left, duplicate and place in the lower right.
©  Open Proud American, C&P, and stretch across the bottom of the tag using your Pick Tool.
©  Open your tube, C&P, and stand her on the Proud American word art (resize if necessary).
©  Activate the frame. Open Fireworks 1, C&P, and place in the upper left.
©  Activate the frame copy layer. Open Fireworks 3, C&P, and place in lower right.
©  Open Fireworks 4 and C&P.
©  Open Butterfly, C&P, resize 50%, Images*Free Rotate left 30 degrees (being sure “All Layers” is UNCHECKED) and place where you like it.
©  Open Heart, C&P, resize 55%, rotate right 30 degrees, and place where you like it.
©  Select your Text Tool and write your name. I used Patriotic Anthem, 36pt, 2pt stroke with a red/blue gradient FG and white BG. Convert to raster, SAFD, expand 5. New raster layer and drag it below your name. Flood fill with color or gradient of choice, add noise. Select none. Activate your name layer, DS, and Merge Down.
©  Add your CR info and save as a .png to preserve transparency (If you are animating DO NOT close). If you aren’t animating, that’s it! If you are animating, move on to the next steps.
Animation Time!
©  This is going to take A LOT of steps, but the final product is worth it J.
©  Hide everything but the CR info, frames, fireworks, and your mask layer.
©  New raster layer, drag to the bottom, flood fill white. Animation Shop (AS) doesn’t like DS, and adding a BG will help with the finished tag.
©  Copy Merged. Open AS. Paste as new animation.
©  Back in PS, hide the unhidden layers and unhide the hidden ones (name, tube, word art, and elements), Copy Merged and Paste as new animation and minimize until we need it later.
©  Duplicate the base image so you have 48 frames. I know it’s a lot, but you are going to need them all.
©  Select (Ctrl+right click) the first 15 frames. Open animation 484, Select All, and Copy. Back on the base image, be sure you have selected Propagate Paste (in the Edit menu) and paste into selected frame. Line it up with the white firework. Run your animation to see if changes need to be made.
©  Select frames 17-31 (make sure the first 15 are NOT selected as well). Open animation 472, Select All, and Copy. Back on the base image, be sure you have selected Propagate Paste and paste into selected frame. Line it up with the blue firework. Run your animation to see if changes need to be made.
©  Select frames 33-47 (being sure no other frames are selected). Open animation 477, Select All, and Copy. Back on the base image, be sure you have selected Propagate Paste and paste into selected frame. Line it up with the red firework. Run your animation to see if changes need to be made.
©  Select all frames. Bring back up the frame with your tube and name. Copy and paste into selected frame. Line it up where you like it. Run your animation to see if changes need to be made.
©  Save with these settings:


If you don’t have these settings, click “Customize” and fix them. And you’re done! Thanks for using my tut J!
