Hi once again. This tutorial uses
Toadies, FM paint
engine and The Plugin Galaxy/edge tool
Hi there.. this tutorial uses 3
different plugins I've included the zips for you up above.
Pick out a
tube you would like to use... click your dropper tool
pick out a few coordinating
colors that are in the tube.
Open a NEW image 400 x 400 and
flood fill with whichever color you'd like at the back ground color.
Go to your EFFECTS/Plugins/Toadies/Ommadawn
or to Filters Unlimited 2 and import your Toadie to there.. some
people have problems with Toadies working the other way.
Your Filters Unlimited 2 is under <I.C.NET
software> in your plugins list.
Use these settings above for your
Once you have the squares on the
graphic like in the Ommadawn capture below..
Use your magic wand
selection tool to choose different
squares on the graphics...
You click your fill tool
and choose your colors from the
tube and fill at random the squares like in the sample below.
There is no set pattern... just try not to get the same color next
to each other...Use light and dark shades that blend together with
the tube your using.
Now go back to EFFECTS/plugins/toadies/Bitches

keep clicking the Randomize button till you see one setting you

go to EFFECTS/plugins/ The plugin
site/EdgeTool/Wobble Edge effect and use these settings as shown
EFFECTS/3D effects/Inner bevel..
use these settings below
Effects/ 3D effects/Drop shadow
using these settings below
I now added my tube below the lattice layer.. as
you can see above.. and applied a 3D shadow on the Daisy.. then
duplicated the daisy layer and resized it...
Every time you resize or use deform tool.. on a
tube or layer....SHARPEN it.. or it will be blurry.
Here is the finished tag.
That does it.. you can add a frame
if you'd like at this point... Like I did in my graphic, by going to
IMAGE/add a border.. you can put several different color ones.. add
a bevel and shadow to the frame... or you can go to IMAGE/ picture
frame and pick a premade frame.. that you think looks good with your

tutorial...till next time!!
