CU Licenses

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). ~Suddenly Sunrise PTU scrapkit by Artmama which you can get from Exquisite Scraps HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the art of Anna Marine, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Toxic Desirez template 63 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Riddle. 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 5 Paper 6 Paper 8 Paper 11 ~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 3 embellie 2 embellie 12 embellie 15 embellie 41 embellie 4 embellie 26 embellie 46 embellie 5 embellie 42 x2 embellie 32 embellie 51 embellie 16 embellie 13 ~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. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 6. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 7. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 8. Add copyright info and name 9. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
