I used the beautiful art of Anthony Guerra

The tube used in this tutorial is not available anymore. It was part of a special promotion Cillm had a little while back.

Lets begin!

1. Open a new canvas 600x600 and fill white.

2. Add a new raster layer and fill with a dark colour of choice (I used #6b655b). Layers, new mask layer, from image, look for my mask and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette and answer yes to the question asked. Ungroup layers.

3. Selections, select all, selections float, selections defloat, add a new raster layer. Grab your brush tool and look for my grunge brush. set the foreground to pattern and look for your tube, set the background to white. Starting with white, dab the brush over your canvas, change to the tube pattern and again dab the brush, make it look as grungy as possible. Once happy, selections, select none. Layers, merge down.

4. Copy and paste my back as a new layer, selections, select all, selections float, selections defloat. Layers, new raster layer. Using your brush tool, repeat the grungy look that you applied above the masked layer, once happy, selections, select none. Layers, merge down.

5. Duplicate this layer twice, and on the original, adjust, blur, guassian blur - 10. Effects, VM Extravaganza - Transmission with the following settings

Line width - 3
Offset - 0
Contrast - 40

6. Duplciate this layer, image, rotate, free rotate right 12 degrees. On the untouched duplicate of the back layer, repeat the image rotate.

7. Make the top layer active, copy and paste my frame as a new layer. Duplicate it, image, rotate, free rotate right by 12 degrees. Move this layer down and place it above the rotated back layer.

8. Make the masked layer active now and add a new raster layer. Grab your brush tool and look for the star brush supplied, using a colour of choice, place some stars around your canvas.

9. Make the top layer active now and copy and paste your tube of choice as a new layer. Add a drop shadow of choice. Add your copyright information and watermark.

10. Using a font of choice, write out your name and place it inside the frame. I used a gradient glow of width - 3, colour same as my background colour for my masked layer.

11. Save as a jpeg and your all done.
