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). ~Hey Now - You're a Rockstar PTU scrapkit by Artmama which you can get from Exquisite Scraps HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the art of Lix, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Leah template 11 which you can get on our blog HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Velvenda Heavy. 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 template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 1 Paper 3 Paper 4 Paper 5 Paper 10 Paper 12 Paper 13 ~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 tubes, I lowered the opacity on one of the tubes 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. 4. Open and place the following elements: embellie 39 embellie 36 embellie 41 embellie 32 embellie 4 embellie 48 embellie 5 embellie 19 embellie 8 embellie 25 embellie 27 ~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~ 5. Open mask 6. Open Paper 11 7. Add mask to paper 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 ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
