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). ~Feels Like Today PTU scrapkit which you can get from Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used one of the tubes included in the kit. Please be sure to use proper copyright info when using these tubes. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 99 which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used SMF Polaroid Template which you can get from Creative Misfits Creations HERE. (Scroll down a bit to find templates by Sandra) ~Font of choice. I used TheNautiGal. 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 9 Paper 15 Paper 17 ~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: Bubbles 2 LeafPile 2 TreeStumps Owl 1 Owl 2 Leaf Flower 4 Flower 6 Flower 7 LadyBug 1 LadyBug 4 Butterfly 2 Butterfly 4 ~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 21 6. Open mask 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 YOU ARE DONE!!!!!!!!!!
