Gold Dove Set......
This is a jewelry set that I started out with a simple picture of a white dove and the use of a circle brush. You can use any kind of bird, animal object, text etc. and arrive with the same results.
Start wih a new layer, fill it with
white (I used the default size)
then cropped it when finished.
layer (transparent) name it dove
Scale it to size you prefer for
your pendant remembering to leave room for your chain
above it as showing in the gold and burgandy image above.
(Mine is 138.138)
Layer to image.
RT click on dove layer > alpha to selection
Click( lock alpha channel)
Gradient > Golden > draw across left to right with gradient
filters > Decor > add bevel > uncheck work on copy, set
thickness at 8 OK. select NONE
new transparent layer name it chain. circles brushe's
paintbrush > circle brush #3
>size .78 > spacing 60.0 FG
color black >
draw chain as shown
gradient > golden > lock alpha channel > left to right with
gradient > Decor > add bevel >
uncheck work on copy, set thickness at 3 OK select none
Your Dove chain and pendant
are now done.
Make a duplicate of your dove layer and name Earrings.
Move layer to top of stack >alpha to selection > resize
I made mine 52 H x 55W
Duplicate earring layer and
use your move tool to place them the way you want.
Merge earrings 2 down to earrings 1
alpha to selection > Decor > add bevel > uncheck work on
copy > set thickness to 3 OK
new transparent layer
Name it studs
FG = black
Use any circle brush and make a circle a little ways up from each dove
Follow same procedure for the Golden gradient as you used on the doves and chain. Don't forget to lock transparency. Then use bevel at about #3
New transparent layer
FG = black
take a very small brush and make a line down to join the circle with the dove.
follow gold directions same as above
VOILA all done.
Now let me see what you guys/gals can create using the same technique. They don't have to be doves. Just use whatever you desire or any background.
