♥Fall Siggy PTU♥

**This tutorial was written & posted by Ditzy Dezigns on November 3rd 2011**
***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!!***

Here is what we will be making :

This is a simple but yet cute fall signature that I made . I thought it would be a nice change to make a tutorial on something other than tags with templates :-) 

Supplies Needed :
Paint Shop Pro X4 (Any version should work)
Scrapkit - Farmers Girl By Tamie @ Addictive Pleasures
Plugins Used :
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass (Optional)
Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow (Optional)

Font Used :
Comic Scan

Elements Used :
Wheel
Turkey
Pumpkin Patch
Bow
Butterfly2
Fawn 2
Fawn
Ivy
Flower 2


Lets Begin :
Start by opening a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. (Don't worry you will crop it at the end of the tutorial)

Now open your Wheel element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 40%. Use your move tool & position your Wheel element to the left side of your canvas. 
Go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen
Now go to Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow
*The settings below are my own personal preference, you are welcome to use the same settings if you would like, or you can change them to suit your own preference.*
***I will use these exact settings all the way through out this tutorial***


Then click Ok.
In your layers pallet - right click on your Wheel layer - then click Duplicate. Now go to Image & click Flip Horizontal, now use your move tool & move your 2nd Wheel element to the right side of your canvas, keeping it centered with the Wheel element on the left.

Now activate your Text Tool - set your Font, Size & Color
The settings I used are :
Font : Comic Scan
Size : 175 Pixels
Background Color : (I used 2 different colors , I have provided the code for each)
#f3b135
#624426
Foreground Color :Set to nul

Then apply your name, position it center between both of your Wheel elements on your canvas. Now leave your name & we will come back to it later.
Now open your Ivy element - Copy & Paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 85%, then re-size it again to 65%. Now go to Image - click Free Rotate - set it to Left 30.00 & click Ok.
Now using your move tool - position your Ivy to the left side of your canvas, keeping in the center.
Now go to Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Ivy layer - then click Duplicate. Now go to Image & click Flip Horizontal - now use your Move tool to position your duplicated Ivy to the right side of your canvas. You want to keep it center & even with your left side Ivy element.

Now back in your layers pallet - right click on your Duplicated Ivy layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Down. (You want to Merge together both of your Ivy layers so they become one layer)

Now right click on your newly merged Ivy layer - then click Duplicate. Now go to Image & click Flip Vertical. Use your move tool & position your new duplicated merged Ivy element down a little on your canvas.

Now open your Pumpkin Patch element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 65%, then re-size it again to 65%. Now using your Move tool - position your Pumpkin Patch element to the left side of your canvas. (See my tag for reference if needed)

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Pumpkin Patch layer - then click Duplicate. Now use your move tool and move your duplicated Pumpkin Patch element towards the right of your canvas. Keeping it centered with the Pumpkin Patch element that is on the left of your canvas. (Use my example above as reference if you need to) Now duplicate your Pumpkin Patch element again & position it in the center of the other 2 Pumpkin Patch elements.

Open your Bow element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 20%. Now using your move tool position it to your liking on the left side.

Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings, click Ok)

Now go to your layers pallet - Move your Fawn2 layer down so that it is under both of your Pumpkin Patch layers.
Now right click on your Fawn 2 layer - click Duplicate - then go to Image - click Flip Horizontal - then use your move tool & move your duplicated Fawn 2 element to the left side of your canvas, and place it in front of your Wheel element. (See my sample for reference if needed)

Now open your Fawn element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 40%. Using your move tool position your Fawn element to the center of your canvas. Position it so that it is also in the center of your other elements. (See my sample for reference.)

Open your Butterfly 2 element - Copy & Paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 20%, then re-size it again to 40%. Now position your Butterfly 2 element to the right side of your canvas. Then go to Image - click Free Rotate - set to - Left 30.00 & click Ok.

Go back to your layers - right click on your Duplicated Butterfly2 layer - click Duplicate, now position it to your liking. Continue to duplicate & position your Butterfly 2 elements until you have as many as you would like on your signature.

Now in your layers pallet - click on the last layer on the bottom -
Open your Flower 2 element - Copy & Paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 40% - then position your flower 2 element so that it is behind your Wheel element on the left side. Make your flowers so they are also sticking up above your wheel element a bit. (See my sample for reference if needed)
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings as before, click Ok)

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Flower 2 layer - then click Duplicate. Now go to Image - click Flip Horizontal - now using your move tool - position your duplicated Flower 2 element to the right side of your canvas & place it behind your Wheel element on the right, also making it so that it is a bit above your Wheel element.

Now in your layers pallet - right click on your Name layer -  then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 4000 - then click Gradient Glow.
**For this effect you will need to set your settings on both the Basic & Color tabs. So be sure once you are done setting your Basic tab settings that you click on your Color tab and set those to your liking before clicking ok** I have posted my settings & Color codes on the screen shots below**


Click Color Tab :

Now click Ok.

Go to Effects - click 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings as before)

Now activate your Magic Wand tool - then click inside each of the letters in the name on your signature. Once all letters have been selected & have the "marching ants" around them, 
Go to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass
*My settings are below - you are welcome to use them or your own*


Now click Ok.
Go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise - set to Uniform, 40 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked, then click Ok.

Now go to Selections - click Select None.

Now add any credit/copyright information that needs to be added.

Once happy with all elements & the name on your signature - go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Visible.

Now activate your Crop tool - then crop off any access canvas that you did not use.

Now once your canvas is cropped you may or may not want to re-size your tag, depending on where you will be using it. Because every place on the net is different as to what size they allow to be used, you will have to check with them. I can't give you an exact size it should be for every website.

If you re-size your signature after you merged & cropped it, you might want to Sharpen your completed signature 1 last time.

Now all that is left is for you to save your signature as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!!
