Template
#10  by Dee
from Old Halloween Mix - zip on left top

Font
Leaf 1

Filters
Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow
Filters Unlimited (FU)- Paper Textures
and any other filters of choice



...........................................................


Okay, let's get started
Remember to save often!!!

Open template and shift D
Close original and re-size canvas to 800 x 800
Crop after tag is done
Fill bg layer in with white

Delete info layer + text + white doodle outlines


There are a few basic steps for this template that are repetitive.
1. Select layer
2. Float
3. Add new layer
4. Fill with color of choice
5. Apply filter of choice
6. Duplicate
7. Apply gradient glow  and noise at 40 to bottom layer

Go HERE if you aren't familiar on my way of adding gradient glow using EC 5 Impact 


We are going to start at the bottom layer (in layers pallet)
and work our way up the template following the steps above.


Use my tag as guide if needed

right blue strip - gradient of browns that match tube + paper texture - striped paper - course

purple strip - green + paper texture - Japanese paper 

orange strip - peach + paper texture - wallpaper - course

green strip - #d42f2f + FU special effects 1 - aged film + change blend mode to luminance (L)

left blue strip - gradient of browns that match tube + paper texture - striped paper - course

white and purple square - light blue 

Outside green oval - green + noise - no gradient glow on this layer

white oval - gradient of browns that match tube + paper texture - striped paper - course + float and contract by 6
Delete
Add bevel
This gives the rope effect like tube has

inside green oval - light green + paper texture Japanese paper

white circle - repeat same steps as above for white oval

orange circle - lighter green + paper texture Japanese paper

left and right doodles -  green + bevel

white square - #d42f2f + FU special effects 1 - aged film + change blend mode to luminance (L)

blue square - gradient of browns that match tube + paper texture - striped paper - course + close up tube - mirrored
Duplicate and change top copy blend mode to screen @ 50% opacity

Paste tube and crop to fit at bottom depending on where you place it

Add name + bevel

Okay, let's get started.
Remember to save often!!!

Open template and my supplies
Shift D

My supplies are for matching my tube if you are using a different tube
then use supplies you have to match your tube

Delete Stars and Skull Layers


Begin with bottom layer and work up.

Don't forget the gradient glow on layers.

Here are the steps you will need to take

1. Select layer
2. Float
3. Add New Layer
4. Fill With Color Choice
5. Add Texture or Filter Of Choice
6. Duplicate
7. Add Gradient Glow and Noise To Duplicate Bottom Layer

Fill every layer of template with color of choice and add 
a filter/texture of choice as well

Duplicate the new color layer and add your gradient glow and noise at 40%

Go HERE if you aren't familiar on my way of adding gradient glow using EC 5 Impact 

I provided a pattern I made and used on the Lrg Rectangle layer
that matches my tube so if using same tube 

On the left and right black circles I floated those and contracted by 5
and added a new layer and filled with a gradient I made using colors from my tag and then filled new layer and contracted by 5 again and deleted so it made a ring inside the black area and then I added noise to it

I floated the Attitude text on left and right and added a new layer and filled with color and added noise

Paste tube and crop to Circle 3
To do this duplicate tube and then float the circle
Once circle is floated Invert and hit delete on the bottom copy of tube
Select None
Now go back to the top copy of tube and crop just the bottom part of tube outside the circle
Merge both tubes together
Now your tube should fit the circle area at the bottom but still be outside the circle at the top

Paste Close Up Tube
Mirror
Float Circle again and Invert
Hit delete on close up tube
Duplicate
Change blend mode on bottom copy to Screen
 and on the top copy to Color (L)
Or play around with blend modes until you get it how you like it
