FTU Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer was written by Myself on 13th September 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Template Autumn 1 by Me  HERE

Filters Used
Xero - Radiance
PhotoEffex - Scanlines
Tramages - Mo Jellyfish

Open template, duplicate and close original. Delete credits and background layers.

In layer palette - Large Rectangle. Click in centre with magic wand to float. Selections - Modify - Expand by 3. C/paste paper 6 with gaussian blur of 20. Invert the selection and hit delete. Move paper layer below rectangle. With centre still selected C/paste a large close up of your tube. Position to your liking behind the Frame and hit delete. Select none. Apply Xero - Radiance to suit your tube. Change blend mode to overlay then duplicate the layer and change blend mode of top copy to soft light.

Repeat this process for Left and Right Rectangle Frames. Making your tube smaller than the previous close up. Apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines on default setting. Duplicate the tube layer as before, bottom copy blend mode as Screen and top copy Soft Light.

Back in layer palette, merge all 3 Rectangle Frames. Add noise -Gaussian at 20% with monochrome checked. Then apply Tramages - Mo Jellyfish ( settings below) Duplicate frames, change blend mode of top copy to hard light and reduce opacity to around 70%. D/shadow bottom copy.

C/paste your main tube to the right of canvas behind fall word art. Apply Radiance if desired and d/shadow.

C/paste element 3 Leaves re sized to 60%. Position bottom left of tag behind left rectangle. Duplicate and mirror copy to right. Merge down, duplicate again and flip copy to top of tag. D/shadow.

C/paste element 5 Branch re sized to 50%. Position along bottom of tag behind word art, duplicate Image - Mirror and Flip. Position copy along top of tag behind tube layer and d/shadow both. Above the bottom layer where the branch ends c/paste element 26 Butterflies. Duplicate change blend mode of top copy to hard light, merge down and shadow.

On the left side of the canvas, behind the rectangle c/paste element 25 Twig re sized to 45%. Duplicate and mirror copy to right. D/shadow.

Mask layer. C/paste paper with a gaussian blur of 20 re sized to 95%. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Re size layer again by 95% and use your raster deform to stretch and position to your liking. Apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines and Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance. Reduce opacity to 70%.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.
