Peddle to the Metal




In this tutorial I used the art of Gemini Creationz,
for which you need a license,
available at Scraps and the City.
The scrap kit I used is called “Peddle to the Metal”,
also by Gemini Creations and can also be purchased at Scraps and the City.
The kit and tube can be purchased separately or as a bundle.
This is a great kit with loads of colourful elements.
Thank you Vicki!

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 35,  here.
You will find it in Set 1.

Font is Blazed, here.



 
Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing or they will be a little blurry.  Check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 625 by 500 pixels and select all.

Open of the papers and copy, I used Gemini_peddletothemetal_paper7.  Paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Increase your canvas size to 650 by 600, make a new layer, flood fill it with white and drag it down below the mask layer. 

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_frame4, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 80%. 

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_paper11 and copy.  Select the interior of each part of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection. de-select.  We will come back to this later when we have our main tube and the rest of our elements in position.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_halftone and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, drag down below the frame and paper layer below it, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_metalflower and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_gear2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_gear3 and paste as a new layer.  Again resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_streetlights and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position, erase the part that shows below the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  It’s a lovely big tube, I resized mine 35%.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_oneway and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, drag down below the tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_folded ribbon and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_flag2 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_clock and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_paperflower1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_wa and paste as a new layer.  Place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_peddletothemetal_mensglasses and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are happy, open your tube again and paste as a new layer.  Resize as necessary, I resized mine 80%.  Drag down so its between the frame and the paper layers, duplicate twice, mirror one of the copies and position one in each part of the frame, select the interior of each part separately, invert the selection and delete the excess tube.  Reduce the opacity of each tube to around 50 and apply the drop shadow to the frame. 

Crop your tag and add the copyright information.

Open the font, set your background to black, close the foreground off and type your name.  Open gemini_peddletothemetal_pp8 and copy.  Go to selections – selection all – selections float – selections defloat.  Paste the paper as a new layer, resize it (size depends on the length of the name) and position it over the font.  Expand the selection by one, invert it and hit delete to remove the excess paper.  Invert the selection again and contract it by 4, hit delete again.  Merge down onto the black layer below.  Duplicate, on the original copy go to Effects – Distortion Effects – Wind, check the box “From right” and set the strength to 80.  Activate the top layer and apply the drop shadow to it, then merge this layer down onto the wind layer.
