Slam Dunk was written by me on 28th March 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.
Tube used is 'Sara'. The gorgeous artwork of Jose Cano and fabulous matching Scrap Kit also named 'Sara' from Skyscraps. Both available from SATC HERE
Xero - Porcelain.
This is quite a quick tut. Nothing too in depth. Perfect for if your having a brew and 20 mins Psp time while the dinners cooking or your waiting to pick the kiddies up from school.
Open a new image 700 x 700. Open element 32 - Half tone. Re size 90% and paste as a new layer. Choose a frame from scrap kit. I used element 12 Oval frame re sized 70%. Position slightly towards upper right of half tone. Take your magic wand and click inside to float. Selections- modify-expand by 2. Open a new raster layer and flood fill with a linear gradient using 2 colours from your tube. Angle on 45- 0 repeats. Move this new layer below frame.
Still selected paste a close up of your tube. Move into desired position below the floating selection. Selections-De float-invert and hit delete. Select None. Apply Xero-Porcelain on default setting and change blend mode to luminance legacy.
Paste1 of the star frames. I used 28 and re size 50%. Position to left. Again click magic wand in centre of frame to float.
Selections-modify-expand by 2. Paste paper of choice from kit. I used paper 1. Move paper beneath the selection and De float - invert and delete. Select none. Apply porcelain as before and change the opacity in layer palette to 80%.
Paste your tube move to desired position and drop shadow. Now place desired elements from kit, working around your tube and frames. Drop shadow to your liking. I used ....
Ele16 Sneakers. Re sized 80%. Positioned bottom of tag. Above frame, below tube.
Ele 3 Trophy. Re sized 60%. Right of tag. Below Sneakers, above frame.
Ele 5. Scoreboard. Re size 60%. Rotate right by 12. Positioned above frame behind other elements.
Ele 4 Whistle. Re sized 25%. Bottom of tag, above tube layer.
Merge visible and crop/re size and sharpen to your liking. Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence . Save as Png.
