Trouble in Paradise - FTU

I am using the art of Keith Garvey which you can find HERE This is a no scraps tut, it uses filters and your preset shapes Feel free to adjust the settings as you wish, mine are only a guide! This is quite a quick tutorial Ok, filters used: Eye Candy 4 - Gradient Glow DSB Flux - Bright Noise Alien Skin Xenofex 2 - Lightning Flaming Pear - Flood Xero - Porcelain Open a new image 700x700 Open the tube you are using Position to the left of your canvas Grab your preset tool on rectangle Make your foreground a lighter colour of your tube and the background a darker shade from your tube Line Style - Solid Width - 10 Draw out a rectangle in the centre of your canvas Use my tag as a reference Convert to raster layer Grab your magic wand and click inside the main frame Add a new raster layer and floodfill using a colour from your tube Apply Flaming Pear - Flood Use the Default settings Keep selected and now use your Xenofex Lightning Filter Arc Thickness - 9 Jaggedness - 79 Leave Branching and Speed at the default settings OK, selections, invert, delete and select none Now grab your magic wand and click inside the lighter part of your rectangle shape Apply DSB Flux - Bright Noise at default Select None Grab your preset shapes again and find a heart shape This time reverse the colours Foreground - lighter colour from your tube Background - darker colour Draw out a heart to the right hand side of the frame convert to raster and position Grab your magic wand and click inside the heart Open a close up of your tube I mirrored mine Paste on your canvas and postion Selections - Invert - Delete - Select None Lower the opacity to 90 Apply Xero - Porcelain Make sure blue is set to 0 and ok As before grab your magic wand and click inside the darker part of your heart shape Apply DSB Flux as before Now apply Gradient Glow Width 3 I used a darker colour for the rectangle and a lighter for the heart Now for the WordArt I made my own and when i finished writing it out I applied gradient glow with the colour white and then again with the blue Add your correct copyright info and licence numbers Add your name and save!
