Just a note about
my tuts I dont tell
all my secrets lol
like how I do the
glow on a name etc.
I also have no
control over the
FTU supplies
I am sorry but
sometimes the
kits are for a
limited time free
or just disappear,
I will share
masks etc ONLY
if the tou of
the creator allows,
You can easily find
another mask or kit
to use in place of
what I have used
on my tuts, I write tuts
as I create a tag,

I hope you all
enjoy them and
I thank you
so much for
taking the time
to stop by my blog

How I do the Names on my Tags

Tutorial on my Fonts and Inner Bevel I use I have been asked to share my inner bevel, well it really depends on the tag I make, the font I use and the color of the name on the tag, Basically I type out my name, It depends on the tag what font but in this tut I am going to use a Fat font so you can see what I am talking about Type out your name, I dont hardly ever use a line width on a name due to I use gradient glow 99% of the time on them. Now select all, float, and defloat, below I show where I used a texture on my name before I apply the inner bevel, Now this is my inner bevel I use most of the time, I have a few others, again it depends on the font and the color etc, this is MY gradient glow settings, and I do change the glow color as well depending on the tag, font etc I apply this 2 times MOST of the time, again depending on the tag!! and this is MY dropshadow settings I use 99% of the time on my names, elements etc and this is the finished product! hope this helps those that have asked about my names on tags smiles christy Ü
