CU Licenses

Monday, April 11, 2011
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). ~IYF (In Your Face) FTU scrapkit which you can get from Kittz Kretionz HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Celine, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 100 which you can get at Rose's Place HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask302 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Pasta Palazzo. 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 2 Paper 3 Paper 8 ~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 2 close-ups. I changed the mode on the close-ups to Dodge (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click on the arrow and select Dodge from the drop down menu). Add drop shadow to full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: Blue Bow Flames Hand Eye Shadow Compact Lippy Lippy 2 Guitar Sewn up Heart Skull ~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 5 6. Open mask (click HERE for a tutorial on using masks) 7. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 8. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 9. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 10. Add copyright info and name 11. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
