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. ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Voodoo PTU scrapkit which you can get from Addictive Pleasures HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the art of Keith Garvey, you must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used ccs temp idratherbeavamp which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask222 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Blackadder. 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 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 4 Paper 6 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 Frame 2. Move it in front of the center square of the template, rotate it at the same angle as the square using the Rotate Tool in your tool box. Size it down to fit using the Scale Tool in your tool box. Add drop shadow. 4. Open tube, add drop shadow. 5. Open and place the following elements: Stitches (x2) BloodSplatter 2 Book SkullCandle RazorBlade Roses Sparkles Butterfly Bird ~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~ 6. Open Paper 2 7. Open mask 8. Add mask to paper (right click on paper layer in layer box > add layer mask > black full transparency). ~Select mask layer in layer box, right click on mask layer (on canvas) > copy. ~Make mask layer invisible (click on eye next to mask in layer box). ~Select paper in layer box, right click on paper (on canvas, all you will see is the outline of the paper) > Paste. ~Anchor layer (click on anchor next to trash can on layer box). ~Right click on paper layer in layer box > apply layer mask. ~Delete mask from layer box. 9. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 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!!!!!!!!!!
