Quick Page set & tag with Yesterday's Love


If you follow my blog you know I am always extra happy to work with certain designers' new kits because I like everything they make. One such designer is Jane aka JT's Designs. Yesterday's Love is a gorgeous kit & even comes with 4 posers. Check out her blog for a list of the many stores where her work is available.
I've made you a set of 2 quick pages & done a tag with tutorial.

Tutorial for tag with Yesterday’s Love

What I used:
Scrap kit by JT’s Designs called Yesterday’s Love. (See her blog
http://www.jtsdesigns.blogspot.com/ for a list of her stores.)
This kit includes 4 posers by 3 different designers. I used the poser from Outlaw by Design.

Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4.0. Make sure “show transform controls” is checked to allow easy resizing of elements.

What I did:
Start with a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use circular selection tool to create a circle. Fill with background of choice (paper 8).
Choose a background element (clock). Adjust opacity to 70%.
Optionally choose a decorative element. I chose trim. Copy & paste your choice, resizing appropriately. In the case of this trim I moved the 2 pieces to a layer below the clock, kept the trim layers highlighted in the layers palette, & erased the portion that went directly beneath the clock.
Copy & paste your poser of choice (outlaw by design ft254), adjusting for size. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
Copy & paste an element of your choice (rusty heart), resizing as needed. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
Enter desired text. I used old script font for the main wording, curved it & then applied a style (TST cherry chocolate glitters style 2). To make the text curve, right click the text in the layers palette & choose “warp text”, altering the settings to taste. For the name on the tag I used renaissance font & applied a gold style from Karen Stimson. Use a simple font (Arial) in a small size for tag information.
Merge visible & save.

Enjoy.
