Welcome & Disclaimer

Hello & welcome to SuthrnPrincess Tuts. I am so excited that you stopped in to see what I have made with the gorgeous tubes and fabby kits that are out there. You will find FTU & PTU kits as well as FTU & PTU Tubes are used in my tutorials. If you run into a problem on a tut please feel free to email me and I will help if I can. My use of a FTU tube does not give you permission to use it. I have obtained permission either from the artist themselves or through a group to use their artwork. You need to personally contact them to obtain permission before using.

**Disclaimer**

The tuts contained within this blog are my own creation. They came from my brain and were created by my own hand. Any resemblance to the works of others is completely coincidental.

postheadericon Cenation Tut




Supplies:
Photos, images or tubes of choice
Eye Candy 5
Richard Rosenman Solid Border
Fonts of choice: I Used Arial Round, Baroque Script, and Vladimir Script

Let’s get started:
Open a 700x 300 canvas
Flood Fill with color of choice.  I used #ff5201 for my flood fill to match Cena’s shirt in one of the images.
Paste first image of choice to canvas and position as desired.
Paste second image and drag to where it is the layer under your first image and position.
Continue this step until all of your images have been added. I have 5 total.
Change blend mode to screen. If the images do not look right adjust the blend mode of each one separately until happy.
Select the flood filled layer. Then select Effects> Texture Effects> Blinds to the following settings: width 6, Opacity 20, color #541a0 horizontal and light from left top checked.
Merge Visible.
Add Celebrity’s name or name of person in the images with font of choice. I used Arial Round size 100 using the same color as the flood fill from the beginning Kerning at -71.
Adjust> Add/Remove Noise> Add Noise> 75
Effects> Plug Ins> Eye Candy 5> Impact> Gradient Glow> Use settings that fit your name. I used the colors black & #b407b9 for mine. I did not record my settings other than that because it will depend on how you want it to look. This is where you get to be unique!
Add wording (hustle, loyalty, respect) with font of choice or whatever wording fits your Celebrity. I used Baroque Script 36 Kerning at 4 with the color #961085 and changed the blend mode to burn.
Merge Visible again.
Effects> PlugIns> Richard Rosenman> Solid Borders to the following settings: Horizontal 7, color #981894
Repeat step changing horizontal to 3 and the color to #ea5c02
Using your magic wand select the first border that you made and promote to layer. Selections> Promote to layer. Then Selections> Select None
Do the same for the second border and select none.
Add noise on both. On the first one 75 and the second 100
Merge the borders together
Effects> 3D Effects> Drop Shadow> Vertical 3, Horizontal 2, Opacity 45, Blur 5, color black
Then do it again changing the vertical to -3 and the horizontal to -2
Merge Visible
Resize to 600x257
Add copyright
Add name with font of choice. I used Vladimir Script size 72 color of the purple border.
Add noise to 100
Add gradient glow. I used black, white and purple. I made sure the black was thin.
