Mosaic Pentagon
« on: June 18, 2012, 08:43:47 am »

I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions.

Supplies needed:
A tube or close up of your choice.  I'm using one by Amy Brown which is available from CDO
Please do not use the same tube without the appropriate license.
Font of choice.  I've used Lancastershire.

Alien Skin Eye Candy 5:Impact - Gradient Glow (optional)

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels. 

2.  Select two colours from your tube and create a foreground-background gradient with the following settings:

3.  Apply Effects - Texture Effects - Mosaic Antique with the following settings:

4.  Duplicate this layer.  On the duplicate, apply Effects - Illumination Effects - Sunburst with the following settings:

5.  On your Sunburst layer, apply Effects - Geometric Effects - Pentagon with the following settings:


6.  Still on your Pentagon layer, apply Effects - Image Effects - Offset with the following settings:

7.  Duplicate your Pentagon layer, Image - Mirror.  Merge your two Pentagon layers together and apply a drop shadow
(I used 0, 0, 100, 15, black)

8.  Add your tube or close up.  Move it into position and apply a drop shadow of choice. 

9.  Add a new raster layer.  Flood fill it with a dark colour of your choice.
Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 3.  Press Delete on your keyboard.
Selections - Select None.

10.  Add your name and copyright and license number (if necessary). 
I added a Gradient Glow and drop shadow to my name as well
And you’re done :)
