Rock Baby CT Tut for SPU

This tutorial was written on September 7, 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 Biker Princess by Zlata_M. You must have a license to use her work. This particular tube is the bonus from a Zlata quest at PFD.  You can find it, and other Zlata tubes, here.
PTU kit Rock Baby from Kissing Kate . You can pick it up here.
Gradient: Patriotic 1 from CapriciousScraps
Mask: 146 from Vix
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: 5, -5, 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 (My default settings are Gaussian, 50%, Monochrome)

All instructions regarding tubes assume you are using the same tube I did. If you use a different one, adjust size/placement accordingly.

©  Open paper 1, promote background layer, open and apply mask, resize 111%, Center in Canvas, merge group.
©  Open frame 3, C&P, resize 117%, place where you like it. Using the Magic Wand tool, select the inside of the frames, expand 5, Layers*New Layer, Flood Fill with gradient (linear, 320 angle, no repeats), add noise, select none, drag below frame layer.
©  Open element 18, C&P, resize 44%, place inside one of the frames, change layer properties to Luminance (L). Duplicate twice, place inside the other two frames. Activate frame layer, merge down 4 times (frame, stars, and frame backs should all be one layer). Free rotate left 90 degrees, place on right side of tag, duplicate, flip horizontal, flip vertical, place on left side of the tag.
©  Open element 26, C&P, free rotate left 30 degrees, move to upper left corner, duplicate, flip horizontal, move to upper right corner, merge down.
©  Open element 16, C&P, resize 79%, place in lower right corner.
©  Open element 4, C&P, place where you like it.
©  Open tube, C&P, resize 88%, place where you like it.
©  Open element 34, C&P, resize 161%, place where you like. Activate tube, SAFD. Back on element, erase anything you want to be “behind” the tube (see my pic for reference). Activate the element 26 layer, SAFD. Back on element 34, erase inside the marching ants on the right-side middle wand, select none.
©  Select your Text Tool and write your name. I used American Dream 72 pt, 1 pt stroke. Place where you like it, Convert to Raster, SAFD, Expand 5, Layers*New Layer, Flood Fill with color of choice, and drag below text, Add Noise if you want. Activate text, Merge Down.

©  Add DS to any layers you want. Add your CR info and you’re done! Thanks for using my tut J!
