The first part of the tutorial is the same for all tags.  If this is not the first one you have done, prepare your tube and click here

 

 

OPEN A NEW IMAGE 4OOX400 BACKGROUND TRANSPARENT.

WE WILL RESIZE THE IMAGE AT THE END, BUT A LARGE WORKSPACE IS EASIER TO WORK WITH.

OPEN YOUR TUBE AND EDIT >COPY.

CLICK ON YOUR NEW BLANK IMAGE TO REACTIVATE IT AND

EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.

RESIZE AS NECESSARY.  IDEALLY YOU WANT A VERY LARGE BORDER.

MAKE SURE YOUR LOWER RASTER LEVEL IS ACTIVE AS IT IS THE BACK IMAGE WE ARE GOING TO TRANSFORM.

Go to Effects>Texture>Mosaic-Antique and choose one of the three presets.

Chicken Wire, Factory Defaults or Texture.

Try them all out (not at the same time!) and click ok.

You may choose to resize your top layer to 90% to allow more of the glass effect to show.  It really depends on your graphic.

Go to Layer One and Fill with a colour from your tube

Select the font of your choice and the colours patterns of your choice to add wording.

I recommend you have your font settings as Create as Vector as this creates a new layer.

Position your text to the height you require and then use the following command to centre it.

Go to Objects>Align>Horiz.Centre in Canvas 

MERGE VISIBLE LAYERS.

Finally resize your image down to 250pixels.

OPTIONAL

Select a colour from your image using the dropper tool

Fill bottom layer with colour (Raster One Layer).

Select Image>Picture Frame and choose any frame.

 

Finished!
