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). ~America the Beautiful PTU scrapkit which you can get from Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used PinUpToons, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used AR315 mask44 which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 1 which you can get from Leah's PSP Hideaway HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Aquarelle. 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 4 Paper 7 Paper 8 Paper 9 Paper 13 Paper 15 USA Flag element ~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 tube, add drop shadow. 4. Open and place the following elements: Fireworks 1 Star Glitter Frame 3 Sparkler Flower 8 Flower 9 Flower 10 Doggie Eagle 2 Wordart 1 ~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 11 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!!!!!!!!!!
