This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Tube of choice. I used the awesome artwork of Ismael Rac, you must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Autumns Arrival PTU scrapkit which you can get from Creative Intentionz HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask293 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Phoenix Script. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to alpha). 2. Open Frame 5, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Papers 8,9,11 & 12 center them behind square portions of the frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open your tube, add drop shadow. 5. Open and place the following elements: Curly Ribbon 1 Rope Cluster Leaf 1 Leaf 2 Leaf 3 Maple Leaf 1 Twig 1 Twig 2 Sunflower 1 Sunflower 2 (x2) Sunflower 4 Sunflower 5 Pumpkins Squirrel ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 6. Open Paper 4. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (right click on paper layer in layer box > Add Layer Mask > Black Full Transparency). ~Select mask in layer box, right click on mask (on canvas) > copy. ~Make mask layer invisible (click on eye next to mask in layer box). ~Select paper in layer box, right click on paper (on canvas, all you will see is the outline of the paper) > Paste. ~Anchor layer (click on anchor next to trash can on layer box). ~Right click on paper layer (in layer box) > Apply Layer Mask. ~Delete mask layer from layer box. 9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 12. Add copyright info and name. 13.
