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). ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Kim Turner, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PSP Tube Stop HERE. ~Romantique Mauve PTU scrapkit by A Taggers Scrap. This kit is a Sophisti-Scraps exclusive and can be found HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 254 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Contribute. 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 Frame 8, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 2 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tube. ~Duplicate the tube layer. Flip one of the tubes using the Flip tool in your tool box and move it to the desired location using your arrow keys. Place both layers under the frame but above the paper. Change the mode on one of the tubes 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). Remove excess tube layer using cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. Add drop shadow to the other tube layer. 5. Open and place the following elements: Beads Heart scatter Butterfly Butterfly 3 Envelopes Flower 1 Flower 3 Flower 7 Brooch Ribbon 7 Box 4 Candle Leaf 1 Key 2 Lock 2 ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements (except Beads & Heart scatter)~ 6. Open Paper 17. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks). 9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 12. Add copyright info and name. 13. Save as .png You are finished :)
