♥~An Eggcellent Forum Set~♥PTU

Here is what we are going to make :

**Please keep in mind that my tutorials are made using my own Ditzy noggin , any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental**
Supplies Needed :
Tube Of Choice : I used Lia www.linmida.com (FTU)
Scrapkit Eggcellent Adventure By Creative Scraps By Crystal
Font Used : Kayleigh (Size depends on what you want) (Color #a7002d)
Font For Copyright : Pixelette Size 13 Pixels Color #a7002d)
Elements Used :
Paper 23
Bridge
Clouds
Sun
Colored Egg
Colored Egg 2,4 & 5

Lets begin:
Open a new image, 650x250 transparent.
Go to selections, select all , in your layers pallet make a new raster layer, then copy & paste Paper 23 "INTO Selection"
On your keyboard hit "Ctrl & d" to deselect.

Open the Bridge element, copy & paste as a new layer on to your canvas, re-size it to 50%, then using your move tool, move it to the left of your canvas, go to your layers pallet again and on your Bridge layer, right click, click duplicate, then go to image, click mirror, then use your move tool and position your bridges so that they are seam to seam  in a way so that you do not see a seam, you can use my tag as reference if you need to. Now in your layers pallet, click on your duplicated bridge layer, then click merged, then merge down, so now both your bridge layers should be one layer.

Open your tube of choice, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, for my tube I re-sized it 50% (you may have to adjust your size according to the tube you are using). Now position your tube to the left of your canvas, now in your layers pallet duplicate your tube layer, then go to image, click mirror, then re-size the duplicated tube (I re-sized my tube to 65%). Now position your duplicated tube so that it looks like it is coming down the bridge on the right.Now go to adjust, click on sharpness then click on sharpen.

Now open your Clouds Element, copy & paste it as a new layer on to your canvas, position it on your tag towards the top of your tag, now in your layers pallet move your clouds layer so that it is below your bridge layer.

Open your Sun Element, copy & paste it as a new layer, re-size it to 30%, position it in the upper right corner of your tag.

Open your Colored Egg 2, copy & paste it as a new layer on to your canvas, re-size it to 10%, using your  move tool position your egg 2 where you want it.

Now open your Colored Egg 4, copy & paste it as a new layer on to your canvas, re-size it to 10%, then re-size it again to 85%. Use your move tool and position it where you would like it.

Open the Colored Egg element, copy & paste it as a new layer on to your canvas, re-size it to 10%, then re-size it again to 85%. Using your move tool and position it to your liking. 

Now on ALL of your egg layers go to Adjust, then click on Sharpness, then click Sharpen. Then add a small drop shadow. Once you have that done, go to your layers pallet and right click and duplicate some of the egg layers and position them all around your tag. (In some cases I did re-size some of the eggs again just so it made them look better, so if you need to re-size them further go ahead and do that at this time.)

Open your Bow element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 10%, then go to Adjust, click on Sharpness, then click Sharpen. Then using your move tool, position your bow onto one of the net stick (if your using the same tube) . Once you have your bow positioned, go to your layers pallet click on your Bow layer and right click, then click duplicate, now go to Image, click on mirror, and adjust your second bow so that it is on the other net stick (again if you are using the same tube)

Now we are going to add our border, go to your layers pallet, click on the last layer in your pallet, then go to Selections, click on Select All, then go to Selections again, click on Modify, on the slide out menu click on Contract, change the setting to 6. Go to Selections again and click Invert.

Now in your layers pallet make a new raster layer, now activate your paint bucket tool, and click in between the 2 lines with a color of your choice. (The color I used first was Black (#000000). Now move your border layer all the way to the top layer in your layers pallet.

Now follow the border instructions above again but this time change your Contract setting to 4, and fill with a different color from your tube. (The color I used for the second border was (#a7002d).

Move your second border so that it is ABOVE your black border layer.

On your second border layer go to Adjust, click on Add/Remove Noise, on the slide out menu select Add Noise. Set your setting to 40. Then give your FIRST frame (the black one) a small drop shadow.

Now you will want to add your name & copyright info. (Font I used for the name was Kayleigh, Color I used was #a7002d) 


If you do not wish to animate your tag you can merge your layers (Make sure you have all your layers in the right order, otherwise when you merge them it will not look right) so on any layer right click then click "Merge Visible". Then save as a png file. (Remember to do this step ONLY if you do not want to animated your tag!)

Continue if you wish to animate :

Go to your Bridge layer in your layers pallet, select it by click on it, then go to your tools and select your "Free Hand Selection" tool. Set to Point To Point, Feather 0 ,Smooth 0. Now trace around your 4 bigger pink flowers in your bridge.

Go back to your layers pallet, right click on your bridge layer, click "Promote Selection To Layer". then on your keyboard press "Ctrl d" to deselect. Now on your newly promoted layer (flowers) duplicate that layer 2 times for a total of 3 layers. Rename the layers Flower 1 Flower 2 & Flower 3. (This will help you when it comes time to animated)

Close of the 3rd & 2nd flower layers, click on the first layer (the first layer always starts with the one on the bottom) go to effects, click on plug-ins go to your dsb flux and on the slide out menu click Bright Noise. Set it to 35 Mix. (Click the circle next to mix to set it) . 

Now click your Mix circle 1 time, then click ok, now close of your Flower layer 1 and open Flower Layer 2, and click on the layer to make it active, go to effects, click on plug-ins, go to your dsb flux and on the slide out menu click Bright Noise, this time just click on the circle next to the word "Mix" 2 times, click ok, now hide Flower layer 2, and unhide and active Flower layer 3, go to effects, go to your plug-ins, then click dsb flux, on the slide out menu choose Bright Noise, now click on your "Mix" circle 3 times, then click ok.

(If you do not have this plug-in, the process above could also be done using your "Add/Noise" feature under "Adjust" just change your setting by 5 each time.)

Now lets open Animation Shop,  now go back to your PSP, click on your Flower layer 1 (make sure Flower layers 2 & 3 are hidden, to hide a layer click the eye ball next to the layer)click on the layer to active it, then right click in the blue area on your canvas (at the top) and click "Copy Merged", now go to your Animation Shop, right click and click "Paste As New Animation". Then go back to your PSP, hide Flower layer 1, and unhide Flower Layer 2 and click on it to make it active,then  right click on blue area again, click "Copy Merged", go back to your Animation Shop and click on the first layer you just put there, then right click , click Paste, then click "After Current Frame". Now go back to your PSP one last time, hide Flower Layer 2, and unhide Flower layer 3 and click on it to make it active, then right click in the blue area , click "Copy Merged", then to back to your Animation Shop, click on the second frame, then right click, click Paste, then click "After Current Animation".

Now you want to click "View Animation", if you are happy with how your tag looks, you will need to re-size it. Re-sizing at this point depends on how small or large YOU want it for wherever you are going to be using it. For myself I re-sized my tag to 550.

Now save your tag. 

Now lets make the avatar :

Back in your PSP, open a new image 150x150 transparent, Go to Selections, click on Select All, then make a new raster layer, copy & paste Paper 23 "Into Selection". now on your keyboard use "Ctrl & d" to deselect.

Open your Bridge element again , copy & paste it as a new layer on to your avatar canvas, re-size it to 30%. Position it as you need to.

Open your tube again, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your avatar canvas, resize it to 30% (again this depends on which tube you are using). Once you have it re-sized  go to Adjust, then click on Sharpness and then click sharpen. Now add a small drop shadow.

Add a couple of your Colored Egg elements, I used Colored Eggs 4 & 5, re-size to 10%, then re-size them again to 50%. Now on Egg 5 ,one you have re-sized it, go to Image, then click on Free Rotate set it to Righ and change the setting to 25.00. Position it where you would like in on your avatar.

Do the same thing for Colored Egg 4, only this time rotate it to the Left , now go to Adjust, sharpness then click on sharpen. Do this for BOTH of Colored Egg layers 4 & 5, now add a slight drop shadow to both Colored Egg layers.

Now you need to add the initial that you want to use or you can add a full name if you can get it so that it doesn't look squished. 

Also add your copyright information at this time.

Now we are going to add our border. Do this the exact same way that we did it above for our banner, so just scroll up and follow those directions. The only thing you will change from those directions is for the first  border when you contract change your setting to 4 for the first border. For the 2nd border when you contract set it to 2. :-)

Then move BOTH border layers to the top of your layers pallet, arrange them so that the black border is UNDER the colored border. (So your 1st border is black in color then your 2nd border is a color of your choice or the color I used which was #a7002d)

Now save your image as a png file and your done!!

Thank-You so much for trying my tutorial, if you do this tutorial or ANY of my tutorials PLEASE send me what you made I would love to see it and display it on my blog!
