****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you don't want to animate....

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!

If you do want to animate...

Open up pen
Add it to your canvas somewhere you want it to end
We're basically going to be working backwards a bit right now.
Once you're happy with that and have a drop shadow on it
Duplicate it and move it a bit, rotate slightly if needed
Duplicate again and move it a bit more and rotate a tad more
And do this until you place your pen tip on the very end of the name.

Now we're going to duplicate both the name layer and the pen.
On the name layer erase just a bit of the name
place the pen tip and the end of the name now where you erased to.

Duplicate both again and erase a bit more and move the pen

Now just keep duplicating this and doing that until you reach the very end of your name.
Remember make smaller erases for a more smooth actual writing out effect but, not so many it takes you hours and hours to do it either.

Now we're going to our animation window and we're going to start with the last layers we used, the rest all hidden.

Add a new animation window and hide the first two layer and unhide the second.

Keep doing this as you go along like you're just writing out the name :D

Then leave the fully name open and just unhide each of the first pen layers we made until it's in it's resting position.

I did all my layers at .1 seconds, except the very last frame I held for .5 seconds

Press play to see it go.

If you're happy with your results then save as a .gif and you're done!!

If you're wanting to animate....

Open ELEM (74)
Add it to your tag and position it inside the frame
I added an outer glow to mine to make it pop just a bit more
Once you have it where you want it
Rotate it so that it looks like a flat kiss coming from the tube
Resize down a bit too, I did mine around 73%

Duplicate this layer 8 times so you end up with a total of 9 layers
On the first copy scale down by 90%
On the second 80%
On the third 70%
On the fourth 60%
On the fifth 50%
On the sixth 40%
On the seventh 30%
On the eighth 20%

Reposition if you're needing to a bit, to get the ALL to move make sure you highlight all 9 layers and then move and it'll reposition it all.

Now hide all of the layers except for the smallest lip kiss.

We're going to go to the animation window.

Have the delay set to .15 sec and to repeat forever.

Add a new layer and hide the first layer we used and unhide the next biggest

Keep adding layers and going up until we're too our biggest lips

Leave that one open and add a new layer after it change the blend mode to 90%
Add another and change the blend mode to 80%
Keep adding layers and lowering it by 10 until you're at 10%
Once you add another one just hide it completely and change the delay to .5 sec

Press play to see your animation go and if you're happy with it you're done!!
Save as a .gif and Way to go!!
