FTU Love And Peace

Love and Peace was written by Myself on 16th June 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental. 

Supplies Needed.
Tube of choice. I have used the amazing artwork of Arthur Crowe  HERE
Fabulous Ftu Scrap kit is 'Niki' by Gimptastic Scraps  HERE
Thank you Amy and Leah.
Template 45 By Me  PSP or PSD

Filters Used
Xero - Radiance
EyeCandy - Chrome

Open template, duplicate, close off original and delete credits and background.

In layer palette - Select and float Outer cream circle. C/paste paper 5 re sized to 80 %. De float, invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original temp layer.

Layer palette - Select and float Brown Circle. C/paste frame 4 re sized to 88%. Position within the selection. De float, invert and delete. Select none and delete original layer. 

Layer Palette - Select and float the inner cream circle. C/paste paper 5 again. De float, invert and delete. Select none and delete temp layer.

Large Star - Take your magic wand tool and click in centre to float. Modify - Expand by 3. C/paste paper 10. Invert the selection and hit delete. Still selected C/paste a close up of your tube. Position where desired beneath the floating selection and hit delete again. Select none. Move both layers beneath the star layer. Apply radiance to suit your tube and change blend mode to Luminance Legacy.

Small Star 1 - Click in centre with magic wand to float. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with blue ( I used #212256 ) Select none and move new fill layer below star. In tool palette select Symmetric shape - Star - Number of sides 5 - Create on vector checked and with  background and fill properties in colour palette set on white, create a small star. Convert to raster. Duplicate a couple of times and position within the star and d/shadow.

Small Star 2 - Click in centre with wand to float. Modify - Expand by 3. Add new raster layer and flood fill with a vertical stripe using pattern in your material palette. I use Psp9  my pattern was graphic 10. Angle 90 - Scale 50. I used manual color correction to change my black stripe to red #a82033. Select none and move fill layer below star layer. 

Apply Chrome ( see settings below ) to all 3 star frames and d/shadow.

C/paste your main tube to the right of your close up and drop shadow.  

Now work desired elements from kit around your tube and temp layers and d/shadow to your liking.
I used ....

Smear - Position top left of tag behind all layers. Duplicate and mirror copy to right. Merge layers together. Duplicate again and flip copy to bottom of canvas. Merge top and bottom layers and duplicate again. Rotate the copy to right by 90 degrees. Merge layers again and apply Xero-Radiance. Reduce opacity to 75%

Deco 2- 50%. Duplicate twice and position around the camo frame.

Helo - 60%. Top right of tag behind tube layer.
