FTU "FUNKY PUNKY" TUTORIAL

Tube of choice is by VeryMany at Pics For Design HERE
You must have a license to use PFD art

Kit is called "Funky Punky" by Lacarolita and is a free download HERE

Template is by ME!!!  Frame is also by ME!!
You can download the template and frame HERE

Mask 341 by Vix HERE

No plugins required - I used Eye Candy Impact Gradient Glow on text - optional


LET'S GET STARTED!!

Open the Template I provided; Duplicate and close the original

Make a gradient with black and a purple from the elements
Use your Color Dropper to choose the purple

Flood fill behind the template with the gradient

Apply the mask>Merge Group>Drop Shadow
You may want to move the mask a little to the left so it will show up better

Rectangles and squares - flood fill the borders with black

Open Paper 9 and Copy>Click on large rectangle>Selections>Float>Defloat>Add New Raster Layer in your Layer Palette (LP)>Paste Into Selection>Select None

Click on the black circle>Selections>Float>Defloat>Add New Raster Layer>Flood fill with your gradient
KEEP THE MARCHING ANTS GOING - TIME TO ADD THE TUBE

Open close up of tube and Copy>Paste As New Image on tag making sure the tube is above all layers

Use the marching ants to guide you as to where you want the close up to be

On your Layer Palette right click on the close up tube layer and choose "Promote Selection to Layer"

Pull away your original close up and delete>Select None

With close up active, go up to Layers>Properties>Luminance Legacy

Go to Effects>Texture Effects>Blinds with settings of width 3, opacity 32, color white - you now have a subtle blinds effect on your close up

To add the Frame I have provided open it and Copy

Click on the Gradient Layer of the circle in your LP

Selections>Float>Defloat>Modify>Expand by 7>Add New Raster Layer>Paste Into Selection>Select None - now move the Frame layer ABOVE your close up

Use your gradient to flood fill the squares and rectangles>Adjust>Add Noise at 50

On the two bottom squares use the same procedure that you did to put your close up in the large circle - duplicate and mirror the close up in the square so you have the close up facing the opposite as in my tag

Duplicate your close up in the squares and on the original go to Adjust>Gaussian Blur at setting of 2 - on the copy above it go up to Layers>Normal at 67

Open Element Funky bow 6, add drop shadow and Copy

Again you want to use the same procedure to place the bow into the top two squares

Open your full tube, mirror and Copy

Place on your tag

Now add elements as you wish or as shown on my tag
Resize and deform as needed

I used the crystal frame element included in the kit and placed behind the template to give it some decoration - see on my tag

Apply drop shadows as you go along

Place your Copyright and name, save as a png format and you're done!
