Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using
a tube by Mark Gerardi
You can purchase his tubes at his
MPT. The tube I am using is from
when the artist sold at Cilm.
Tube of choice
Scrap of choice.
I’m using one by Pimp'd Designz
It is available at Pimp My Tags
Open a 600x600 new image.
Open your tube & scrap supplies as well.
Open a star design element.
Paste as a new layer.
Inside the star,fill the empty areas
of the star with a color from your tube.
Now using the magic wand,
select the areas within the circle
around the star.
You may have to hold the shift button down
while selecting multiple areas.
Paste a paper of choice from the scrap
as a new layer.
Selections invert & press delete button.
Move the paper under the star layer in
your layer palette.
Add a drop shadow to the star element
Paste your tube of choice.
Now open a wheel element.
Position either under or by your main tube.
I did under my tube so that she appears to
be sitting on the wheel.This can vary depending
on your tube of choice.
Open a skull element
Resize 50% & position on side of frame
by a star point.
Open bolts element.
Paste behind your main tube.

and the flipped ones going down.

Position on the tag by side of the frame
on the bottom layer.
Duplicate it once & mirror.
Merge the two flame layers together.

of the frame.
