CT tag & wallpaper featuring the fantastic art 
of Goldwasser using her tube Abigail.
Abigail comes with many options so you 
can dress her up as you wish for your tag.
I am also showcasing the oh so wicked scrap
Just A Little Witchy by Wicked Princess.
The wallpaper is 1920x1080 &
is available to download here. As I was
finishing these up, the song Black Velvet
kept popping in my head. So the wording
on the wallpaper is inspired by it.

This tutorial was written on September 17 ,2023
Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using the art of Rene Kunert
with her September 2023 Bonus tube.

Mura's Meister Copies
VM Natural 
VM Toolbox
Distortion Filters
Xero: Porcelain
VM Stylize

Open a new image 700x300.
Add a new raster layer & fill this layer with
a color of choice from your tube.
Copy & Paste your tube of choice
as a new layer. I resized my tube 
by 45% but it may depend on the tube you choose.

Duplicate the tube once &  rename the copy as Main
Hide the Main layer for now.
On the original tube layer, apply the plugin 
Mura's Meister Copies - Wallpaper rotate with default settings.
Rename this layer as WP1.
Duplicate the layer one more time & rename this copy as WP2.
This will help us keep layers straight as we design the tag.

If it helps you, feel free to hide WP2 layer for now while working
on the layer underneath it.
Making sure you have WP1 layer selected in your layer palette,
Apply the plugin VM Natural - Splash! with default settings.
Next while staying in VM Natural, apply the Lightburst effect to the layer.

Let's move the layer WP2 underneath layer WP1.
On the WP1 layer, apply the plugin VM Toolbox -
Lift The Cover (With Alpha) with changing the Edge Position to 157.
Now, apply the plugin Distortion Filters - Cracked with default settings. Change the blend mode to Soft Light or whatever looks
best on your tag. 

Select & unhide if needed the layer WP2. Apply the plugin
Xero: Porcelain with default settings.
Next, apply the plugin VM Stylize - Raygun with default settings.
Apply the plugin Video - TV Screen with default settings.
You should see some of the bottom color layer peek out
around the edges of the layer now.

Unhide your main tube. Position either to the left or right
along the edge as wanted.  Using your selection tool, select along
the bottom of your tag into or behind your main tube layer. 
Add a new raster layer & fill with the same color as your 
color layer. Select none & lower opacity to 40.

Duplicate the WP2 layer. Go to your Effects - Art Media Effects
Brush Stroke with default settings. I chose the color black for mine
but feel free to change the color for your tag. Change the blend mode
to Screen or whichever works best for your tag.

Add a new raster layer to your tag. Arrange it so its the top layer of your tag.
Fill with white or color of choice from your tag. Select your magic wand tool
& click this layer on your tag. Selections - Modify - Contract by 4. Press delete on your keyboard. Select none. Add a drop shadow to this layer & the rest of your layers. 

Add artist copyright information & a name to your tag.
Save as a png. Thanks for trying my tutorial!

New tag & wallpaper by me featuring the wonderfully
emotional art of Zindy. I am showcasing her tubes
No More  & Just Let Me Break. I am also showcasing
a few scraps by Chaos Priestess as well.
The wallpaper is 1920x1080 & 
available to download here. These were inspired
by the band Conquer Divide with their song Paralyzed.
While listening to the song, Zindy's art came to mind
as a way to illustrate the emotion of the song.
One of the band members is a nurse & the song's about 
how she was affected while working during Covid.
Covid took a toll on everyone but the emergency
& medical services were some of the heaviest
affected areas of the world.

This tutorial was written on August 31 ,2023
Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using the art of Elena Dudina
with her tube 49-1.

Mura's Meister Copies
Xero Illustrator
Xero Porcelain
Xero Mistifier
Graphics Plus 

Mask: AORK Mask 120

Open a 700x700 new image.
Open up your tube of choice.

Select your Preset shape & choose Ellipse.
Make sure the circle shape is selected & not the oval.
Set your width size to 7.00.

On the Materials palette, have a dark color for the 
Foreground & Stroke Properties.
Hide the Background color for now. Draw out 
a circle shape to a desired size. 
Before converting to Raster layer, go to Objects
Align - Center In Canvas. Then convert to Raster.
Rename the layer as Circle.

Copy & Paste your tube as a new layer underneath the 
circle shape. Resize 70% if needed. Rename the layer as Tube Inside.
Duplicate this layer once.
On the bottom one, apply the plugin Mura's Meister Copies -
Wallpaper Rotate. Repeat if needed. Rename the layer as Tube WP.

Duplicate the bottom layer of the tag. Fill this layer with a color 
from your tag. I used one of the blues. Rename this layer as Color.

Select your magic wand tool. Click inside the Circle layer.
Selections - Expand by 2.
Selections - Invert.
Select each layer - Tube WP, Tube Inside & Color
& press your delete button on each layer. Once done,
select none. This should erase the extra of each layer 
outside of the circle layer.

On the Tube wp layer, apply the plugin Xero Illustrator with the settings
Abstraction 59, Coloration 148 & Definition 138. Next, apply 
Xero Porcelain with default settings. Lastly, use Xero Mistifier with default
settings as well. 

On the same layer, change the blend mode to Soft Light in your layers palette.
Go to Adjust, Blur - Gauassian Blur 2.00 to the layer.
Go to your Effects Menu - Distortion Effects - Wind.
Use the settings - From Right and Strength of 50.
Add drop shadows  of choice to the layers of your tag.

Duplicate the Tube WP layer once. On the Copy layer, apply the plugin
Graphics Plus - Peacock with default settings. Then, in your layer palette,
lower the opacity of the layer to about 48 or desired number for your tag.

Choose your font tool Select a font of choice to use. I set my font size to 28
but feel free to use a size you like. I chose White for my text color &
unhid it in my Materials Palette color option. Type out a single word or two
that fits your tag. For mine, I used Dreaming...
Convert text to raster layer & add a drop shadow of choice.

Add a new raster layer above the bottom layer of your tag.
Fill with same color as the Color Layer.  Go to Layers menu
- Load/Save Mask. Choose the mask AoRK Mask 120. Make sure
invert is not checked. Merge group. Resize 97%. 

Add artist Copyright & a name to your tag.
Save as png. Thanks for trying my tutorial!
