lj name you want on banner: [livejournal.com profile] aquarian_abyss

Additional comments? brushed banner, please.

Make a canvas width: 300 px by height: 100px. Copy and paste the icon to the canvas and fill the background layer with #000000.
Take the tiny text and paste it to the canvas [under the icon]. Invert (CTRL+I) the tiny text so it's white text on black and copy and paste across the banner.
Make a 5px, #000000 section on top and bottom of the banner.
Using the gradient tool make a line about the same size as colored part on the icon. Use #800000 to do this. Do this on the RIGHT side of the banner.
Duplicate the red line and set the top one to screen 100%.
Add text.

THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: icons that have the ability to be continued and are request as brushed.
