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). ~Urban Chic PTU scrapkit by Rieka Rafita which is an exclusive kit for SATC. You can find more info on her blog HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Arthur Crowe, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used the Jehsee Template which you can get from Annaica's Place HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 302 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Whatka. 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 template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 3 Paper 7 Paper 9 Paper 11 ~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 both a full body and 2 close-ups. I changed the mode on the close-ups to Screen (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Screen from the drop down menu). The close-ups have been added to the template (directly on top of Paper 11) in the same way you add paper (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete). Add drop shadow to the full body tube (and the puppy dog tube as well). 4. Open and place the following elements: Ribbon 2 Punk Teddy Skull 1 Skull 2 String 2 Button 3 Star Lip Guitar Headphones ~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 18 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks) 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!!!!!!!!!!
