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). ~Jaded PTU scrapkit which you can get from Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the tubes included in the kit, please be sure to use the proper copyright info when using these tubes. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask363 which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 44 which you can get from Sapphy'z Demented Hallucinationz HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Shelter Me. 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 12 ~I also added noise to some of the layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~Add drop shadow to layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used both a full body and close up. I lowered the opacity of the close up to 50 (at the top of the layer box you will see a bar you can slide to change the opacity of the selected layer). Add drop shadow to the full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: Flower 6 SafetyPin 2 Lips 1 Skull 3 CustomBike MetalDoodle 2 Flames 2 CurledGlitter 3 ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Use your Scale Tool in your tool box to adjust the pixel size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 5. Open Paper 5 6. Open mask 7. 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. 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 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 DONE!!!!!!!!!!
