My promised tutorial

Learn how to make this: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Tutorial is for Photoshop.

1. I opened a new window with this template that I made.

2. I opened another window with this image of Ashley Olsen, and resized it. Then I added it into about 1/2 of the black part. I just copied and pasted. Desatuarate and sharpen the image as needed.

3. Now I added a purple layer over Ashley and set it to Lighten 100%

4. Then I wanted to put some kind of pattern/flower on the other part of the black section of the icon. So I found this picture of a flower on gettyimages.com and resized it. Then I copy and pasted it into my icon. Since the purple in the flower didn't match the purple color on Ashley, I duplicated the flower image and set it to multiply 100%. Then I sharpened as needed.

5. Then I decided to add three random lines, by picking colors in the flower, and Viola!

Ahhhh. Thank you. OMG, I love High School Musical. Sorry. Thanks. I can seem a bit oblivious in the middle of the night.

I made the template myself. You can make your own quite easily..it's just lines and tiny text, so you can make your own variation of it :)
