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).
~Santa's Goodie Bag FTU scrapkit by Angel's Designz HERE.
~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Tim Lowery, you must have a license to use this art. You can purchase this art from PTE HERE.
~Template of choice. I used Leah's template 119 which you can get on our blog HERE.
~Font of choice. I used Scriptina.
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, remove and 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 1
Paper 2
Paper 6
Paper 8
Paper 12
~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.
~Open full body tube, you will need to duplicate this tube so that you have 2 (at the bottom of your layer box click on the blue box. This will give you 2 tube layers).
~Select the top tube layer in your tool box. Add Gaussion Blur (Filters > Blur > Gaussion Blur, use default settings).
~On that same tube layer change the mode 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).
~Add drop shadow to bottom tube layer.
~I changed the mode on the close-up to Overlay (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Overlay 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 and place the following elements:
Ribbon bow
Tree
Bells
Star
Snowflake
Snowflake scatter
Flower
Glitter
Snowman
Bauble 1
Bauble 2
Candycanes
~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. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).
6. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).
7. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).
8. Add copyright info and name.
9. Save as .png
ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
