Cluster Frame TOU

Thank you SO much for being so interested in my cluster frames. I love that you enjoy using them.

However I do have a request, please do NOT credit me as the cluster frame on your tags. Although I assembled it, I do not believe I deserve any such credit. If anything, please list Scrapkit by, (assuming you didn't add other bit by a different designer to your tag of course). I'd prefer not be given credit for simply assembling the cluster frame. Thank you ♥

This is the tag we'll be making, another nice easy scrappy tag. So, here's what you'll need:

• I used the scrapkit Devilish Love by the very talented Jules of Jules Junk which is available for sale at Scraps with Attitude.

• Tube I used was by Elias Chatzoudis and can only be used with a license which can be obtained at My PSP Tubes however any tube you want to use will do.

• I used 2 masks by Vix (#108 & 326) and you can get them at her site under the Goodies section.

• The filters I used were Mura Meisters Tone, Xero Mistifier, Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow, and Eye Candy 4 Gradient Glow.

• Font used was Liorah BT, but use whatever font you wish.

This is quick and easy I promise!

• Open up image 700x700 and paste frame of choice as a new layer, I used frame labeled element 35, re-size as needed, remembering this is a full-sized kit so more re-sizing may be necessary. Click inside the heart frame and expand selections by about 10, add a new layer below the frame and paste paper of choice into new layer selection, I used paper 2. On this layer (with everything still selected) I applied Mura Mesiters Tone to the paper, making sure that black was my foreground color). Once applied, select none.

• Okay now let's put tube in there, I used one of Elias' beauties, and pasted tube above that paper layer we just added but below the frame. Re-size the tube if needed. On tube layer, select all, float, and defloat, go to the frame layer, grab your eraser tool and and erase the parts of the tube that hang over the top part. This will make it look like she is coming out of the heart frame. Select none. Depending on your tube, it may be necessary to remove any excess on the bottom too, just carefully erase those bits.

• On white background layer, paste paper of choice as a new layer (I used paper 9), and paste it twice as we are using 2 different masks here, but hide one of them, this will allow us to see better what we are doing. On the bottom most one, apply mask 108 and merge layer group. On mine I used my deform tool to pull at the masked layer until I had it just right. Once happy go to the second paper and unhide, apply mask 326 and merger layer group. I re-sized this layer about 87% and moved it so it was more centered in the tag. Beautimous!

• At this point I re-sized my tag, sharpening my tube layer of course. At this point add some of the gorgeous elements that Jules provides. Now on the wordart piece, I used my freehand selection tool to make 2 layers of the 2 words, widened the space and put the heart element in the middle, lining them up how I wanted and then merged the heart element and the 2 words back into 1 single layer. Add a nice drop shadow to layers that need them, I used Eye Candy 5 Perspective Shadow. On the tube layer, I applied Xero Mistifier to give the tube a nice muted glow.

• Add the artist's copyright and your taggers watermark and then add your text. I chose to use Liorah BT but use whatever is your font of choice here.
