PTU- Urban Chic

*Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working 
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: The chic new kit- Urban Glam- 
from Tasha's Playground. This kit is a PTU kit 
& is coming soon only to PTE.

Tube: I'm using the gorgeous artwork of Zlata M,
 which you can find at PFD.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license 
to do so & have purchased the tube.
My Supplies: Here.

Filters: Filter Factory B- Sliding Spirals
Xero- Radiance
Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 

Font: Pixel Berry for the pixel font.
Urban Hook-Up for the name

Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 0 0 80 4.

Let's do this! =)

Save your progress often.;)

Unzip my supplies.
Copy the gradient to your PSP Gradients folder 
& the selections to your PSP Selections folder.
* There is an optional pixel words file you can use for your tag.

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste a paper of choice. Leave for now.
* If using the pixel words provided in my supplies, 
skip the following step:

Next, with a pixel font of choice, type out 'Urban Chic' 
or whatever phrase you want, using the gradient provided 
in my supplies for your font colour.
Using Mura Meister Copies, tile your pixel words:

Next, Selections- Load/ Save Selection-
Load Selection from disk.
Find the Star in the drop down menu.
Make sure the 'invert selection' box is ticked & click load.
On your paper layer, hit delete. Keep selected.
Next, on your tiled pixel words layer, hit delete.
Select none. Crop to canvas.

On your paper, apply Filter Factory B- Sliding Spirals at default settings:
Change the opacity to about 45%. Add a drop shadow.
On the Pixel Words layer, change the blend mode to Multiply.

Next, Selections- Load/ Save Selection-
Load Selection from disk.
Find the tilted squares in the drop down menu.
Make sure the 'invert selection' box is ticked & click load.
Copy & paste your paper of choice. Hit delete. 
Keep selected & add you close up for all 3 selections.
For the biggest one, resize your tube about 60%.
For the left & right ones, resize 30% & 40%.
Hit delete for each & select none. Crop to canvas.
Erase any excess in each of the tilted squares.

Change the blend mode of the bigger one to Luminance (L).
Merge the two smaller ones together.
Add Xero- Radiance to them:
Then add a gradient glow to your tilted boxes paper layer:
Next, using your magic wand, 
click the gradient glow on all the tilted boxes.
Add some noise- Uniform/ Monochrome/ 70%.
Select none. Then add your drop shadow.

Next add your main tube. Resize 45%.
Position her off to the left.
Apply Xero- Porcelain at these settings:
Then add your drop shadow.

Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added 
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.

cityscape- 75%.
Duplicate it. Add noise, changing the amount to 25%.
Change the opacity of this layer to 75%. 
*This is to 'wash out' the bottom a bit.;)
Add a drop shadow to the bottom layer.

motorcycle- 70%, mirrored

brokenglass- Move just above your pixel words layer. 
NO drop shadow.

speakers- 60%
purse- 60%
skulls- 70%

can- 65%. Duplicate. 
Rotate the top one 90 left.

pills- 50%. NO drop shadow.
heart2- 70%

sparkle2- 65%. Rotate 90 right.
Using your lasso, go around the bit that goes 
across her face & the middle of her body:
Hit delete & select none.

Add any other elements you want at this time 
to make the tag more 'yours'.

Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now, add your name, using my gradient:
Angle- 45, repeats- 3. Rotate 15 left.
Give it a gradient glow:
Then add a drop shadow.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & you're done.
I hope you enjoyed trying this tutorial. 
I'd love to see any of your results. =)
