**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Ocean Breeze**

*This tutorial is written by me using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any similarity to any other tut is coincidental.*


Supplies:
Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Verymany.
You must purchase a license to be able to use their work.
You may do that at VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Ocean Breeze'
by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can find it HERE.
Mask of choice - WSL_Mask58
Font of choice


Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Element 20 and place it little left and down from the
center. Drop Shadow with Opacity on 35%. Click the 'background' layer
then. Then add 2 copies of Element 91, one on the top left an other on
right center (around the frame) with shadow on both. Now past Paper 37,
don't resize it! Use Eraser Tool to remove everything outside the frame.
Open tube file and past full size tube, Flip Horizontal and place it at
the left side. Double click on the tube layer and set Blend Mode to
Hard Light. Then click on the frame layer. At the frame bottom place
Element 10, resize to be bigger a little and shadow. On the bottom left
add Element 60, shadow. On it past Elements 18, 36, 28 and 75 in that
order with shadow on all. Then at the right side past Elements 17, 65,
58, 18 and For the frame top left side use Element 100, resize a little,
Flip Horizontal and use Eraser Tool to remove the other branch. Make a
copy of it, Flip Horizontal and place it little down and left from the
original one, shadow on both 35%. At the top of the fist leaves add
Element 33, shadow. From that one till down we'll place Elemens 108,
34 and 51 with shadow on all. Now add full size tube and place it little
right from the center, shadow on 45%. At the tube bottom add Elements
78, 83, 43, 103 and 6 in that order with shadow on all 35% (fallow my
tag to see where to place them).

Now let's add mask:
Open your mask as new image.
Mask layer will be called 'Background' and will be locked. 
Double click on same layer, press OK. Layer name will be 'Layer 0'.
Add a new layer above it and flood fill with color of choice,
or use a paper from kit. I use Paper 6.
Click on mask layer and hold CTRL+A to Select All, CTRL+C to Copy.
Click on the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode. 
CTRL+V to paste the mask. It should now be kinda red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode
and there should be shown selection on your canvas. 
Hit the Add Layer Mask.
On paper layer, right click and Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again and Rasterize Layer.
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer.
Resize it if needed.

Add proper copyright and your name on tag.

Hide or delete bottom 'Background' layer. And save your tag as .PNG file.
That's it! Thank you for reading. I would love to see any tags made with this tutorial. You can past the link here as comment or send them to me on al3x_v@ymail.com

**TUTORIAL HOW TO - Recolor**

*This tutorial is written by me using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any similarity to any other tut is coincidental.*

This's a little different tutorial. Since I recolor VM tubes all the time,
some of you asked me to tut how I did it... Well here it is!!!
This's not really 'proper' way to do it, but this's how I learn it
and find it to be easy, so please don't laugh lol
This's tutorial on how to recolor my way.

Supplies:
Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Verymany.
You must purchase a license to be able to use their work.
You may do that at VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Sweet Summer Days'
by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can find it HERE.
Template of choice - DD_Template _SiggyPiggy
Mask of choice - CircleMask9byJenny
Font of choice - Rockwell Extra Bold


Let's get started...
Open tube .psd file. Turn off all of the layers but the last one,
girl. Turn on layer heels_2 and make a copy of it. On the copy layer
add Layer Mask and use Eraser Tool to remove part of the shoes
that aren't heels. Use color white for eraser to remove and color
black to appear again - that's why we have layer mask. Now when we
erase all we wanted, double click on the layer and add Color Overlay.
Color pink (#f553c6) and set Blend Mode to Color. Now make a copy of
that layer and set general Blend Mode to Screen. Just heels will be like
mine on the tag. Go back to the original layer heels_2. Double click
on that layer and add Color Overlay - color blue (#9de2e7), Blend Mode
to Color. Make a copy of it and set general Blend Mode to Screen. Then
turn on layer dress_2 and add Color Overlay - color pink (#ee58c3) with
Blend Mode on Color. Make a copy of it and set general Blend Mode to
Screen. Now add Layer Mask to that layer and erase bottom part of the
dress (part with patterns), the really light part. Turn on layer dress_4
and add Vector mask, then erase middle part of the dress, where the
patterns are. After that add Color Overlay - color light blue (#7cd5de)
and Blend Mode on Color. Make a copy of it and set  general Blend Mode
to Screen. At the end turn on layer flower_1 and add Color Overlay -
color pink (#ef77b0) and Blend Mode on Color. Also set general Blend Mode
on Screen. Select all layers and group them or Convert to Smart Object.
That's it! Thank you for reading. I would love to see any tags made with this tutorial. You can past the link here as comment or send them to me on al3x_v@ymail.com
