Around Tha Way

This awesome CT/PTU tag was done for Jackie's Jewels using her Around Tha Way scrap kit.

The creation of this tutorial is my own any resemblance to any other tutorial is strictly a coincidence.
Do not copy this tutorial or claim it as your own. If you would like to share it, please share the link to blog ONLY.
This tutorial was written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop. This tutorial can be adapted for anyone with a working knowledge of PSP.

Before we start, I would like to remind you to save frequently. This is in case your program closes on you as mine is known to do. J  I save as a .psd file. This keeps your elements in layers instead of merging everything the way a .png file does. I also I do not say copy and paste your element onto your canvas. In photoshop, it is possible to drag and drop. But if you are more comfortable copying and pasting, then by all means do what is easier for you. I also use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.

Supplies needed:
Around Tha Way scrap kit from Jackie’s Jewels. You can find where to buy it here.

The tube I’m using is Alcid, an exclusive from PicsForDesign. You have to buy a membership to the Exclusive Club to get it. You can get it here. Remember, you cannot use any tubes without a license.
