Friendship 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). ~Dearest Friend PTU scrapkit by Artmama which you can get from Exquisite Scraps HERE. ~Tubes 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 Spring 1-Beautiful Spring template which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask84 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Pea Faith Dots. 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. I deleted the green flower and wordart layers of this template. ~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). (To add different papers to each square of the top layer on this template, use your Magic Wand tool in your tool box to select the individual square you would like to add the paper to instead of using the Alpha to Selection option. Then follow remaining directions for adding paper to template layers.) These are the papers I used: Paper 1 Paper 2 Paper 4 Paper 8 Paper 9 Paper 11 Paper 12 Paper 14 ~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-ups. I lowered the opacity the close-ups 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 to full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: embellie 8 embellie 6 embellie 50 embellie 46 embellie 42 embellie 2 embellie 47 embellie 32 embellie 34 embellie 28 embellie 30 embellie 22 embellie 23 embellie 51 ~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 13 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper 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!!!!!!!!!!
