Moonlight Tutorial

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Renee Lavoie tubes.
You need to be a registerd member of MyTagArt
to purchase the tubes - but any nice tube will do.
Frame & font in my supplies
No Outside filters or scrap kit with this tut.

Open up all from my supplies. Minimise the font.
Have my MoonlightFrame open on your workspace. Click Shift D
to copy. Delete original Frame. Make the white background active,
go to Image-Canvas Size with these settings

Don't worry, it is big for now but we will resize it at the end.
Make the Frame layer active - duplicate - on bottom Frame image, go
to Image-Free Rotate with these settings. Remember to untick All Layers.

Now it is time to colourize the Frames to your liking. I chose a light colour
from the tube.
Now, you can do this 2 ways - you select the colour you want- click your Colour Changer
Tool, have top Material Palette the colour you want & then click on the Frames. Or you can
change the colour by Hue & Saturation numbers then go to Adjust-Hue & Saturation-Colourize
typing in the H & S numbers. I chose a light blue


Make top Frame layer active - Merge Down. Selection Tool-Rectangle-Add(shift)-Feather 0
carefully draw out a rectangle on the inside of the Merged Frames

Hit delete - keep selected, go to Selections-Modify-Expand 4, new Raster layer, Flood Fill
with a nice gradient. Keep selected - move the gradient layer below the Merged Frames, make
Frames layer active - copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Move your tube to where it fits
nicely within the Frame - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Move your tube layer
below the Frames.

Cross out the eyes on bottom layer (white), Merge Visible all other layers. Uncross the eyes on
bottom layer. Make your Merged image layer active - resize 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked, duplicate.
Make bottom Image layer active, go to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 25.
Then go to Effects-Texture Effects-Mosiac Antique with these settings

Make top Image layer active - Merge Down. Add your name & correct copyright. Crop Tool, crop
excess white background. I resized mine again by 64% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Copy image & paste
as a new image on your workspace. Save as a *Png
