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:

• Tube I used were by Jennifer Janesko and can only be used with a license which can be obtained at CILM however any tubes you want to use will do.  CILM is now closed, however you can purchase her gorgeous art tubes at CDO here.

• Template I used was by Babe, template #34 please go to her blog to get this awesome template and many others!

• The filters I used were Xero Porcelain, Super Blade Pro, Eye Candy 4 Gradient Glow, and Xenoflex 2 Constellation.

• Font used was Oh Lara, but use whatever font you wish.

• I used the scrapkit Angels on the Moon by the fabulous Missy which is available for sale at Scraps with Attitude.

Okay ready, let's go!

Open template, and do Shift & D to make a duplicate image, and close out original. Delete credits layer. On transmission layer, select all, float, defloat, add a new layer, and paste paper of choice (I used paper 7) as a new selection on that new layer. Delete transmission layer. Duplicate that new layer you just created and merge down. (It just gives it a darker effect).

On bar 1 layer, select all, float, defloat, invert selection and paste paper of choice as a new layer (I used paper 3), resize by 70% and hit delete. Delete the original bar 1 layer. On bar 2 layer, select all, float, and defloat, add new layer paste paper 3 as a selection into new layer. Delete bar 1 layer. On black bars layers, do the same thing ,I used paper 8. Delete original black bars layer. On new layer you just created, apply super blade pro coconut ice setting.

On doodles layer, select all, float, defloat, paste paper of choice as a new layer, resize by 75%, invert selection, hit delete. Then delete the original doodles layer. On circle layer, select all, float, and defloat, add a new layer and paste paper of choice into selection, I used paper 17. Delete original circle layer. Do the same thing with the Dotted Circle layer, I used paper 13 for this one and then I applied an inner bevel to the new dotted circle layer.

On large heart layer, do the same as above, I used paper 12 on that one. I applied a super blade pro coconut ice setting to the new layer to give it a nice glassy effect. In the super blade pro apply screen, I changed the shape so that it was a more rounded effect and not any of them weird indentations lol. On the small hearts layer, select all, float, defloat, paste paper of choice as a new layer (I used paper 8 ), resize by 75%, invert selection, hit delete and then delete original small hearts layer. Apply super blade pro to the newly created layer, I changed shape to the 3rd from top on the apply screen.

Okay lets put the tube in there. On the new circles layer, using magic wand too, click in it once select it and paste tube as a new layer. Resize to your liking and invert selections, contract by 1. Grab eraser tool and erase the part of the tube that hangs over the bottom of the circle. Lets move the dotted circle under the tube now.

On that big circle layer again, select all, float, and defloat, add a new layer and paste into selection the bright light element. Select none. Duplicate and merge down and give a white drop shadow. If you wish to animate, duplicate that layer twice, and go and apply Xenoflex Constellation effect to one of the layers using settings of choice. Here are mine:

Apply to the other layers, clicking random seed once on each layer.

On individual bar layers and the circle layer I applied a gradient glow setting, below are the ones I used:

Apply any elements you wish at this time. Resize your tag to your liking and sharpen also apply any drop shadows at this time. Add artist copyright and your watermark information. Add your text, I applied coconut ice super blade pro setting and gradient glow with a drop shadow to mine.

If you are animating, close off 2 of the animated constellation layers, and copy merged, paste into AS. Go back to PSP and close of that one layer that you left visible and unhide the 2nd one, copy merged, paste after frame in AS. Repeat for the 3rd layer. View the animation to make sure it is as you want. Optimize the animation and then save.

That's it! We're done, I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and I look forward to seeing what you create with it.
