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). ~The Days Grow Short FTU scrapkit which you can get from Artmama's Studio HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the art of PinUpToons, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Facebook Template which you can get at Dees'sign Depot HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask302 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Aquarelle. 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 template in PSD format, move layers of template around until they are the way you like them. ~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 1 Paper 3 Paper 6 Paper 7 Paper 8 Paper 9 ~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color). ~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used a full body and a close-up. I lowered the opacity the close-up to 50 (at the top of the layer box you will see a bar you can slide to change the opacity of the selected layer). Add drop shadow. 4. Open and place the following elements: embellie 11 embellie 12 embellie 13 embellie 14 embellie 17 embellie 18 embellie 19 ~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 5. Open Paper 9 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper (right click on paper layer in layer box > add layer mask > black full transparency). ~Select mask layer in layer box, right click on mask layer (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 from layer box. 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 9. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 10. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 11. Add copyright info and name 12. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
