Eye Candy Gradient Glow

I know its a lot...but here we go.

Open a new canvas 800x800, we can resize it when we are done. Flood fill white.

Copy and paste the black wings. Resize by 80%. Add a drop shadow.

Copy and paste my frame. Using the magic wand selection tool. click inside the frame. Selections-Modify-Expand by 5. New raster layer flood fill with black. Keep selected. Now copy and paste the texture. Invert selection and hit delete on your keyboard. Change the layer property to Luminance(L) and lower the Opacity to 36 or so. Select None. Move these two layers below the frame layer.

Copy and paste my wordart. Resize if needed. Place it in side the frame to the right. Add a subtle white gradient glow and a drop shadow.

Copy and paste one of the metal dangles. You can choose one that is the same letter as your name or some random letter its your tag. Add a drop shadow. Place it at the top left of the frame. Erase some of the metal loop to make it look like its hooked on the the frame.

See my tag for reference.

Take your magic wand and select inside your frame. Selection-Modify-Expand by 5. Copy and paste your tube. Place it the left of the frame. Invert selection and hit delete on your keyboard. Select none. Add a drop shadow. Move tube below frame layer.

Highlight the background layer. New raster layer flood fill with a color you like. Go to Layers-Load/save Mask-Load Mask from disk. Find your mask and hit OK. Merge group.

This is the time to crop your tag and resize it to your liking. Doing this now will make your name look better.

Add copyright and name. Add a heavy drop shadow to the name so it stands out.

And that's it.

Thanks for trying my Tut. Hope you had fun!!
