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 Suzanne Woolcott, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE.

~Farewell Summer PTU scrapkit by A Taggers Scrap which you can get HERE.

~Font of choice. I used Alex Brush.

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 10 (striped frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). I tilted the frame slightly using the rotate tool in the tool box.

3. Open Paper 17 center it behind Frame 10, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser.

4. Open Frame 8 (green frame), add drop shadow.

5. Open Paper 8 center it behind Frame 8, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser.

6. Open tube.

~You will need to duplicate the 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 Gaussian Blur (Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur, use default settings).

~On that same tube layer change the mode 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).

~Add drop shadow to the bottom layer of the tube.


7. Open and place the following elements:

Leaves 2
Doors
Tag 2
Bottle
Bag
Seed
Seed 2
Seed 3
Seeds
Flower 9
Flamingo
Butterfly 2
Birdhouse

~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 Leaves 2)~

8. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer).

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

You are finished :)
