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 Goodies FTU blogtrain by Tasha's Playground which you can get HERE.
~Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Jaz Higgins, you must have a license to use this art. You can purchase this art from PTE HERE.
~Template of choice. I used Rose's template 40 which you can get at Rose's Place HERE.
~Font of choice. I used Valentina JF.
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.
~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).
This is the paper I used:
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 both a full body and a close up.
~I changed the mode on the close-up to Hardlight (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Hardlight from the drop down menu). This tube has been added to the template 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).
4. Open frame 3, I tilted the frame slightly using the Rotate tool in my tool box. Add drop shadow.
~Open paper 4 and place it directly under the frame. Remove excess paper using an eraser or cutting tool from your tool box.
~Place full body tube under the frame and over the paper. Remove excess using an eraser or cutting tool from your tool box.
5. Open and place the following elements:
Circles
Flower 3
Flower 4
Flowers
Petals
Rose
Grass
Dragonflies
Frog
Heart 2
Bottles ~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 (except Circles)~
6. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).
7. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).
8. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).
9. Add copyright info and name.
10. Save as .png
ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
